There was a time when if you bought a game and played it to completion, if you wanted more game you could do only one thing; wait, and hope a sequel or possibly an expansion pack was released. Everything was fine with this until the internet came along and offered up new opportunities for developers to offer additional game content via downloadable content (DLC.) Oh, and make money. Lots of money. About $875 million a year a year in fact. A figure that is growing annually.
