I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

I don't really care. On disc DLC is normally DLC I don't give a s*** about and off DLC is good later on.

off-disc downloadable expansions, too bad they're pretty much unexisting nowadays.

Both suck equally as much. I want complete games.

Don't really care either, but if I had to choose it would be off-disc.

Take a game that has on-disc DLC.
If there was a scenario where they wouldn't be allowed to do on-disc DLC, they wouldn't have left said content unlocked on the disc, they would have removed it from the disc and release it as download later so they could charge for it anyway... unfortunately.

on disc....when there is no code that needs to be purschased to "unlock" it (especially day 1)

example: game of the year editions with all dlc on the disc

otherwise, theyre both rip offs

I prefer free DLC, big expansions, or no DLC.

Never once paid for something like extra skins or short scenarios, and never will.

So DLC released a year after makes the original game incomplete?

Off disc, since at least for off disc DLC you're paying for new stuff and don't feel ripped off as much. For on disc DLC you're paying to access stuff on a disc you paid for and own...

I miss the days when companies actually released expansion packs for games like they did in the 90s and early 2000s for PC games. They were more often than not developed after the base games initial release, and contained a lot of content that really enhanced the experience. Some examples include Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil, Starcraft: Brood War, GTA: London 1969, all the Quake and Quake 2 mission packs, etc. Now more often than not we get some map or weapon packs that cost $10 - $15 that are either locked on the disc or held back for a later date so they can get more money from our pockets. Some developers still put some thought and care into their expansions, but they're too few and far between.
