    This is such a goddamn joke, even more ridiculous than the turn around time for l4d2. I mean this game has been out for a fucking month and they are already dropping 2 dlc's at 800 microsoft points a piece. DLC is a blessing and a curse, and the way game companies are going it will soon be purely a curse.

    I dont find a problem with it. Borderlands is pretty large as a standalone game, so nothng wrong with more dlc that lasts as long as some full games. Eg. borderlands dlc is almost as long as gears 2 and longer than halo odst ( a 60$ addon)

    just because halo and gears suck, doesn't mean this game has to. There is no denying that the core borderlands experience is too short. Sure you can play through again, but it gets old real quick.

    really how long did it take you to finish? how many games this year did you play that were longer? I would say borderlands is one of the longer , more content filled games of the year.

    plus the fact that halo and gears have a multiplayer outside of the single player campaign, which is a huge reason people bought them

    It gave me about a weeks worth of play, about average for most of my games. It just bugs me that they obviously have this content already made, they just make you pay 10 more bucks so soon after you just paid 60.

    I don't see anything wrong with DLC. You don't NEED to buy it. I only have 'Broken Steel' for Fallout 3, didn't care about the rest (although Point Lookout and Zeta look awesome). All they do is ADD content that wasn't there in the first place. (although seedier developers who force people to pay for 'DLC' which is just unlocked content off the disc need to DIAF)

    Think about the PS2/Xbox era. When you finished a game, it was done. That isn't really the case anymore. I would have thought more people would see this as a good thing. Sure, it costs money, but not much doesn't these days, especially in gaming.

    How many games last generation when there was no dlc that were that much longer? Not too many that I can remember.

    true. Guess I should just give in and expect less content for my money.

    Well he thinks the devs are stealing away content that would have been in the full game. I dont think it would have been in the game at all either way.

    I think DLC is a good thing in certain cases, map packs and what not for mw and the like are great. but it's been less than 2 months and they already want me to fork over an extra 20 bucks for a game i spent 60 on. But the others in this thread are right; I don't have to buy the content nor do I have to buy the game.

    This is why I rent stuff I know is just going to milk the shit out of you.

    I only buy RPG's with replay value, certain FPS's, and games like Gran Turismo

    Ya cant bitch about DLC, its optional and they seem to be delivering to fans. A great game with more content is a good thing.

    When ya start complaining about this kinda stuff ya can start sounding like that you to fag Truth setting you Free guy.

    Why does it matter how long other games of this year were when those same games are always criticized for having slim content and short gameplay?

    I would say average gamplay length and content has actually gone up instead of down through out the generations, so this extra content would have never been in a ps2/ps1/snes game in the first place. Back then gameplay length was artificially extended with tedious difficulty.

    People always want more, but its not so realistic with higher dev costs.
