Where before I would buy certain games at fullprice for 50-60 bucks, nowadays most games already announce they will have DLC after the release, which automatically means I will just wait for a GOTY/Ultimate/Complete release to come out, which WILL have all the content.

It has already gone to far if you ask me. I say less DLC more games worth spending your hard earned money on. I do not buy DLC that I believe should be part of the game to begin with... What really pisses me off is DLC 2 weeks after the game launches....

Developers really are getting out of hand with this! I agree that Rockstar has the right idea, but for every Lost and Damned, there is a costume pack for Street Fighter. It sucks, but when developers lock the material out of the retail disc for profit, we really don't have much of a choice.
