Pixelitis Picks: Best DLC for your buck

"When people look back at this console generation, the introduction of downloadable content might be one of the most notable features to stand out.

Of all the innovations and additions that came our way over the last few years, DLC has undoubtedly changed this industry the most. Nowadays, having DLC available for your game on day one is pretty much required. Retailers like GameStop take reserves on DLC before it even comes out and companies spend advertising dollars on TV commercials for their “blockbuster” DLC releases.

Games themselves harbor a slew of great DLC and some downright embarrassing ones. The content that’s made available to us can range from the “who the hell buys this stuff” level to “they could have sold this for full price and I would have bought it.” In fact, many of the best games of this generation took their DLC very seriously and, as a result, enjoyed a long shelf life." - Pixelitis Staff (Mass Effect 2, PC, PS3, Rock Band 3, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Xbox 360)
