Standalone Prologues, Epilogue DLC, Are These Really Necessary In Our Games?

An opinion piece via EGMR in which the author discusses the upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and questions whether the standalone prologue has a place in gaming. Also mentioned are Prince of Persia, Dead Space 3 and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, all of which contain epilogue DLC.

Quote: "It’s the week of release of the next title in one of the gaming world’s biggest franchises; Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is the standalone prologue for next year’s Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain and you would be excused for asking yourself exactly why Ground Zeroes exists in standalone format." (Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Dead Space 3, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PC, Prince of Perisa, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

At least I get to play a little bit of MGS V now, rather than waiting until next year.
That is what makes me happy

I have to disagree, I'd rather wait and get the whole package. When replaying MGS5 later on, it will annoy me so much that the first part of it is some downgraded standalone game with worse graphics than the rest, with an extra set of menues, tutorials etc. etc..

Why not? If it packs 8hrs of gameplay (replaces included) then I'll pay $25 used for it.

To be honest dlc's should be free.you already like pay R600 for a game. Now you must pay extra just for map? Or R250 for a few extra missions
