So when I buy my games on Steam often modern games have DLC also for sale. For example Resident evil revelation I've been wanted to get this game on Steam for a while. The game also has DLC for sale one of the DLC is a special handgun and the other DLC for this is also other guns and extra little items. You don't really need these items to finish the game but it adds variety I guess. Well I've taken sorta of stand and for a while now I only buy the main game and only expansion packs that actually adds story or levels.

Have any of you done the same as me or heard other people doing what I'm doing ?

I feel all DLC is unnecessary.
Expansion packs didn't bother me, it was like getting a whole new game.
But (modern) DLC is just stuff that was stripped from the game before publishing so they could charge you more afterwards. Sometimes the DLC is actually on the disc and just locked.
To me, DLC doesn't add value to a game, it reduces the value.
I don't see $60 game + $20 DLC = $80 value.
I see $60 game - $20 worth of content = $40 value.

literally no "i buy what I feel like buying" option.

I bought a Skin for COD Ghosts the first day it came available, and I'll buy the Drill Sergeant voice DLC eventually as well.... I haven't bought a single map pack.

Its incredibly obvious (Except for the occasional indie dicks that decide to charge for overpriced DLCs, **** you Magicka) when a game will be pumping DLCs out of their ass.

Its predictable, and I always make sure to never buy more than the full package on a 75% sales years later.

Its hard enough to ever justify anything close to 60$ these days, I sure as hell don't touch buying DLCs. And they are getting worse and worse.

Multiplayer DLCs are different, by the way. A game with paid multiplayer DLC means I refuse to play it at all. I spit on those games.

I treat DLC the same way I do every purchase - if I think it's worth my money I'll buy it. However, I pretty only much buy gameplay / level DLC. I don't think I've ever purchased cosmetic DLC, anything that would constitute as a "cheat" (all weapons, god mode), or anything to get ahead (unlock all levels). I think it's a shame that some of these things cost money now.

If it's a game I'm interested in though, I'll gladly pay for more gameplay as long as reviews are favorable. Missing Link from Deus Ex: Human Revolution turned out to be what I consider some of the best gameplay they had to offer. And I'm pretty psyched about picking up Burial at Sea for Bioshock: Infinite once I have some more free time.
