Downloadable Content, or DLC as it is affectionately known, tends to split gaming opinion like Marmite splits office debate. There are many in the camp that it is yet another way for games developers and publishers to make more money from us poor gamers and others that just can’t seem to get enough.
This is by no means a new phenomenon, additional content has been available for to those willing to pay for it for as long as I can remember. Back in the days of the old home computer systems and early PC gaming, this came in the form of expansion packs purchased at shops on tape or disk, which always seemed to cost as much as the game itself (probably due to all that packaging). Now with the current generation of PC’s and consoles being so easily connected to the internet, they take the form of DLC.
