Anybody here refuse to pay for unnecessary DLC ? POLL

I usually buy the vanilla game, play the hell out of it, get bored with it, and then never touch it again. THEN They release the DLC. By that time I don't even care.

Years down the line they'll release the DLC for some cheap price and I buy it because I think "it's been a while since I played the game so maybe I'll want to play it again and now I'll have that DLC..." and then it sits in my backlog for another 2 years.

So yeah, if I don't wait for the GOTY edition, I probably just don't get the DLC till it's dirt cheap. If it's just costumes and stupid s*** then I probably never get it.

Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

Clearly offering a product for sale is shady.

I buy DLC that adds content to games I enjoy (for example, the Skyrim DLC was basically expansion packs.)

I don't buy cosmetic DLC or DLC that only serves to make your character overpowered.

*Turn Evil can now be cast on players. When used, it applies a small goatee and causes them to explain their diabolical plans while steepling their fingers.

Case-by-case basis. I don't buy dlc I know I probably won't use, I don't buy cheats, I don't buy stuff I feel is overpriced and I often skip purely cosmetic dlc.

If I can safely deem the DLC in question to be classified as, or of the same level of quality of an "expansion pack" , and it's a game that I really like, then I buy it. Other than that, no I don't like paying 5 dollars for a digital monocle.
