Killing games

Developers need to make great, working, COMPLETE games to release, not count on DLC

like PS2, PS1 generations and before, when DLC did not exist. I miss the pre-DLC generations

I agree and disagree. For me some dlc has been done right like Mario Kart, Pikmin,luigiU, Forza Horizon 2 are just a few examples but others like we see alot in FPS games or even sports games I don't think is right.

I do agree we are seeing alot more broken games than we have ever seen before and this needs to be addressed. For me ide rather see games like COD be on a 2 year cycle but then have some DLC every 3 to 6 months rather than 4 weeks after a game is out.

But what do I know I just play games not develop them.

DLC is a cancer to gaming.

DLC is fine if it wasn't ripped out the the game and just sold off as dlc *cough* Evolve *cough*

There have been plenty of great DLC like GTA 4: Ballard of Gay Tony, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare and pretty much all of the dlc in Burnout Paradise were amazing especially Big Surf Island.

To me Ballard of gay Tony was a new like game and it was amazing.

Dunno about killing/saving but its giving more and more companies a bad reputation.

Its also giving them a ton of extra money though because the dlc is often good enough to make many people buy it.

Can only talk for myself here but I stopped buying games from a couple developers or am waiting for versions which have all dlc included and are released for the launch price or less.

I am rarely buying games at launch now because dlc.

Kinda dumbass a question is this......

Dlc could be something great, adding more content to a complete and full game is awesome. Not lopping it off and handing your on disc content back to you later for a little pocket change.

Evolve is fvcking cancer, its a 60$ game with a crappy season pass and preorder bull shit mixed with a free to play model more befitting of SOE.

They literally thought of every way to screw gamers possible and stuffed it in one game. The only thing missing is a subscription and boom you have the perfect abomination......

Well, it WAS great when they were full on expansions.

Now, they are easy cash grabs.

Agreed. What a Dumbass question with an obvious answer.

Yes, the Industry with its GREEDY TACTICS is killing gaming and turning it into a shallow frankenstien experience.
