Did you do this with shareware discs in the 90s?
Did you do this with Quake, which was distributed on a CD for ~$3 as a shareware version with the full version on the disc, able to be unlocked for $40 if you called a phone number?

We weren't paying $60 for shareware discs. With the general lack of content current games are shipping with (for whatever reason), I consistently feel like I'm being asked to pay more for less. DLC of any kind is usually no more than salt in my wounds.

That wasn't his argument.

But yeah, you are being asked to pay more for less. Game devs are being asked to spend more for the same amount. There's an inevitable break there somewhere.

If you don't think a game is worthwhile due to the DLC - don't buy it. Simple. I'll continue ignoring almost all DLC and still enjoying my games. I'll continue not buying the DLC that I think is worthless, which is almost all of it. But, Fallout 3 arguments aside, I've never felt like what I was given with my purchase was incomplete.
