I see a pretty big division between gamers when it comes to this matter. Some feel it is our right to have every single game enhancing DLC for free, simply because it should be a ‘thank you’ to everyone who went out and brought the game in the first place. Some people argue that a lot of DLC is cut from the original game while in production, just so the publishers can make a few more bucks.
On the other hand some people see no issues paying what they see as a fair amount for any decent DLC. It’s an extra bit of story to their favorite game; a new area to explore, a couple of new features that may change a game’s dynamic. Why isn’t it worth money? The developers have worked long and hard on it so you can’t expect it for free!
