That's because "back in the day" DLC didn't exist. Get the F*** over it.

Over what, exactly? The factual nature of my statement?

Get over the fact that things are different now. The world keeps turning. Adapt.

What exactly about pointing out a fact signifies that I have not adapted?

I just hate when people compare what is happening in the game industry now to a time when nearly everything was different. Dishonored would have looked like Hexen and if they wanted to expand on it you would have to go to the store and buy an expansion pack. I hate it whenever someone says "back in the day blah blah things were better then, wah" What the hell is even the point in stating out a "fact" if it is a pointless one.

A grander question would be why the emotional reaction?

A grander question than what exactly? What question are you comparing this new and brilliant one to?

I don't think harrison understands that game devs used to not need to push paid dlc to make a quality game filled with lastability, unlike modern devs. Shame, his arguments almost sounded cohesive and well thought. Almost...

See my opinion is superior because I refuted your statement without actually arguing anything. ~JDM_Jev

So do you feel Dishonored was not a quality game with lastability? I feel that it was a quality game with adequate lastability. Not every game needs or benefits from derivative extras. In past generations not all games had quality and lastability either. And what else were Street Fighter II C.E./H.F./N.C./S.T. or The Sims House Party and Hot Date than the DLC of the time? Both Street Fighter II and The Sims had loads of quality and lastability,.Capcom and EA still 'pushed' new purchases for the same game with minor improvements or new content. I don't see how this is different.
