I look back into my past and remember that all the games that I bought are in the Neat little disc. I put it in, and a complete game installs into my computer. There were no patching then. If there is an expansion, you have to get that new disc and install it. These expansions are full games too, even if they are not stand alone. Now, we have games that have several DLCs. Some are games that are released are divided into several episodes. Content is divided among the three. There are also games following the freemium model, and you have to get those DLCs to win in multiplayer games! Using DLCs too much is a bad business move. I only bought DLCs once and it was for Total Was Shogun. Have you bought DLCs? What are your thoughts on these?
