I've always found it difficult to engage with downloadable content. I've no idea why. I think it's because I've always liked the idea of video games being this unchangeable 'thing', like a novel or a film. The idea that games can be tweaked or added to sort of bothers me on some level. It's silly, but that might be why I've always tended to ignore DLC, even when that DLC is top notch.
I enjoyed the GTA IV DLC, the Episodes from Liberty City, because they felt like standalone games, but I can't think of any other DLC that I ever played through seriously.
It's getting to the stage, however, where I think I'm going to have to undergo some sort of attitude adjustment. So many of my trusted friends have informed me that the Dark Souls II DLC is pretty special, particularly the last and final piece of content just released this week. I'm also hearing that the Left Behind DLC for The Last of Us may actually surpass the original game itself. Maybe it's time for me to switch things up and admit that I was wrong about DLC.
So I'm looking for your help: if I'm going to be playing catch-up on DLC, what should I check out? What should I be playing?
Let me know in the comments below.
