The 5 Worst Cases of DLC

Downloadable content can be a good thing for games, offering more replayability, missions, and general fun times. However, there also exists DLC that is out there to wring out every last penny you own, trading in your hard earned cash for a raw deal. Though the world of DLC is still fairly new to gaming, here are the five worst DLC offenders to date. (Industry, Mega Man X iOS, Sonic: Lost World, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion)

I can kinda understand the other 4 games but Train Simulator 2014 doesn't make sense.

Firstly most of the simulators content was out before TS 2014 so this comment is redundant "If you do end up downloading all 133 pieces of DLC (and counting), try and enjoy it while you can — Train Simulator 2015 is right around the bend."

Most of the content comes from TS 2013, 2012, 2011 and RailWorks with a few coming from Rail Simulator. All content is future compatible.

I have only ever purchased Rail Simulator at full price, I got a heavy discount on RailWorks and every year since you get a free upgrade to the latest version of the Simulator minus the new routes and trains.

Most if not all the content gets heavily discounted every sale.

Not all the content is made by the simulators developer, they are partnerships with the developers hence the steep pricing.

Finally its not a game, its a simulator!
