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. --- http://raptr.com/badge/arleas/uc.png http://www.speedtest.net/result/3201564081.png
Chalk me up for I buy whatever I feel like as well. --- 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.
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. --- I am the bringer of death. Fall to your knees and beg for mercy... Or give me a sandwich, I'm pretty hungry.
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. --- is haha
