DLC Done Well

GamePointsNow take a look at a few example of the right way to handle downloadable content (BioShock 2: Minerva's Den DLC, Borderlands, Borderlands 2, Burnout Paradise, Fallout 3, PC, PS3, PS4, Red Dead Redemption, Rock Band, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I hate sites like this, 5 seconds into reading the article you get some annoying popup that blocks 1/2 the screen and doesn't go away.

I'm not approving just for that fact.

Some Facebook/Xbox One ad.

Yeah, something about liking the page on facebook and giving away games. You want us to like the page when the image covers the article and can't be removed? Had to refresh the page to get rid of it.

Ah it shouldn't be super intrusive, I've passed it on cheers

Don't agree on Fallout or Borderlands.
Fallout 3 DLC was pretty short. It was good stuff, just not really much there. New Vegas didn't allow the option to finish the game and continue exploring, so I didn't even bother getting DLC.

Borderlands DLC was mostly done by other companies and was, for the most part, rather boring and added very little. The DLC didn't get good until the level cap update and Tiny Tina's, which is the one Gearbox did themselves. By the time I was done with that, I didn't want any more new DLC and would have preferred they started working on BL3 instead.

Fallout 3,oblivion, Halo3,and Civ5 IMO had the best DLCs this gen. Worthy mention is Undead Nightmare for RDR and General Knoxx. Sadly I have not given B2 Dungeon Assualt (Borderlands 2s DLC was not as great as the first) or XCom expansion a try yet which I hear are both pretty good. The rest of DLC I played has been nothing great

Borderlands 2's DLC was horrible!
admiralvic  +   358d ago
Yup, though this article should touch on single examples over actual games. I mean, a lot of these games got really heavy into pointless DLC no one cared about or wanted.

Burnout had cars you could buy.
BioShock 2 had characters, more trial packs and a bunch of multiplayer updates. That is, in addition to Mirnova's Den, which is the only DLC worth touching on.
Borderlands 2 had a lot of DLC packs that were looked down, over priced characters (their characters cost more than a fighting game character...), costumes, $4.99 for an arena and the head hunter packs.

The best example of "DLC done well" are those that actually do it well. A great example is Soul Sacrifice. They added like 10 or so new bosses and gave you like 70 missions for free. Spelunker HD offered you 10 super hard levels for $2 dollars each. They actually added so much content that you could get twice the game for $8 dollars ($2 less than the games actual price). There are many examples like this, which really should have been used.
