Would people stop spending money on DLC please? This is becoming extremely annoying to see companies hack up their game to try and sell bits and pieces to you after launch

That's usually not how it works, and it's not how it worked with Oblivion. Hell, most of Oblivion's DLC would have ruined the game if it was included, as it was all very powerful.


Sigh.

Would people stop thinking that games have unlimited budgets and start understanding that DLC comes from an entirely separate budget, one that in the past would have given us add-on packs. But I guess Tumbler feels that Ultimate Doom should have been included with Doom and Scourge of Armageddon should have been included with Quake.

While I agree with your assessment of DLC, I take issue with your comparison of DLC to add-on packs/expansions. Pound for pound, expansions and add-ons were a MUCH better value for what they were priced at. They were typically 20 bucks, but offered orders magnitude more content than what DLC does today for 6-10 bucks. Bethesda generally does it right, but many many companies offer paltry tidbits for 7 bucks.
