It was so much more simple. You had a basic friends list and if I'm not mistaken, all DLC was free although there wasn't too much of it. No ads, no bulls***.
Most DLC was free or cheap. I remember when the Halo2 maps came out, they were $10 for nine... NINE maps. AND, if you waited just six months, they were all free.
It sucks that Original Xbox Live is gone. God, how I miss Spies vs. Mercs. Even if you're able to play System Link, you can't download the patches and free maps anymore, and that snow map from Chaos Theory was amazing fun.
By snow map you mean Polar Base. And yes, I miss the Chaos Theory spy vs merc days.
Yeah, I forgot the name. They say Spies vs. Mercs is coming back for Blacklist but my expectations are extremely low. Maybe they'll shock us and bring back the glory days.
Sorry, this is a gaming message board. We don't play games, we just complain about them.

A good amount of retail game came with 2 months of XBL gold, too.
Way more people used their mics
But XBL now is pretty damn great
Yeah, times have changed, that's for sure. There were a lot less trolls/ignorant POS back then too.
Before you comment on one of my posts, please research the Dunning-Kruger effect. Best game of all time: Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.
Since the day it came out. Played the hell out of the motogp demo. You could play every track in the game for as long as you wanted. And just pointing out, out of the 20+ games I owned DLC for, none of it was free when it came out, and I believe only Halo DLC was free after half a year.
Twilight is like Soccer: 2 hours of people running around, no one scoring and millions of fans telling me I don't get it. - Maliice
