Edit: Most Dlc's that add levels,maps are probably worth the 15 bucks
The same could be said for expansions. There were many cases in the old days were expansions were very near to completion on the release of the game. If anything can be added to a game then they could have been in the game from the beginning. Expansions typically added a lot more, but were also typically more expensive. Bundle up a bunch of DLCs and add their content and price together and you will probably often get something comparable to expansions in the days of old. Though you'd probably have to get $40 of DLCs to equal a $30 expansion, but that could go either way...and value will always be a matter of opinion too. However, everything is more expensive these days anyway so getting less for more doesn't surprise me.
However, the skin and texture packs and the like? Yeah...those used to come from modding for the most part. We are now basically forced to pay for some one to mod the game. That saddens and angers me. Modding was the most major advantage PC gaming had. Now all we are basically left with easier to use controls...and better graphics, but I don't think graphics are that big of a deal as long as they aren't ugly. I have never seen graphics on the PS3 or 360 that would have prevented me from buying the game. I highly doubt I will ever upgrade my PC again. I think I will just get a next gen console unless some MMO or PC exclusive comes out that I just have to play. However, no mods is making PC gaming look very unattractive to me. That is coming from some one who never even purchased a PS2 because I didn't want to leave PC gaming.Edited by Vagrant Storm - 3/14/13 at 9:19am
