Op Ed

604Republic - The Descent of DLC.
Downloadable Content is the Anakin Skywalker of video gaming. A small addition which was meant to make things even better, but instead destroyed the good we already had.

I wish I hadn't read that.

I'm so tired of gaming articles written about how terrible gaming is, written by people who clearly hate all of it. People piss and moan and cry and whine about these things endlessly, and yet somehow have still played all of it and either like to post everywhere that it was just as shitty as they thought it was going to be when they put in their credit card number, or create articles that only people who agree with them are ever going to read in the first place to complain about it.

The process to fixing this is a pretty simple 2-step:

1) Get sick of gaming and the way that companies sell games and DLC
2) Stop buying into it.

Except, you have to wonder if that hasn't already happened since we've been talking about this for years now... an entire generation of consoles has come and is soon to be gone and this has only magnified over time, meaning it's pretty clear that people are buying it. The war about DLC is already over, and the people writing articles like this already lost five years ago and don't seem to have realized it yet.

If gamers really agreed that DLC was an evil that needed to be squashed, was an affront to gaming like he says here, or that only idiots ever paid money after the initial game then we wouldn't even be talking about it anymore.

Hell, sometimes I wonder if I'm really starting to lose my enjoyment of games or if it's just that I get depressed about the hobby because of the poisonous atmosphere everywhere you go to read about it.
