Of all the thousands of DLC packs available out there, some can give much more "value" than others. Based on your own experiences, what is the most WORTHLESS DLC you've ever bought from any game (on any platform)???

NOTE: I'm referring more to actual content packs, and not necessarily "microtransactions" (e.g. virtual currency for a mobile game). Granted, if you've never once bought any DLC, or you think all DLC you've gotten has been worth the money, that's fine. I also realize that some DLC is just for aesthetics, not gameplay, and that's also fine. I'm simply referring to any DLC that has caused genuine "buyer's remorse" for any reason.

For me personally, the most worthless DLC was for a weapon and armor pack for a game where every single one of the items was obsolete in less than 40 minutes of gameplay. This actually happened on multiple games; Dynasty Warriors 7 / Toukiden: Kiwami / Age of Conan / Kindoms of Amalur. I really need to stop buying armor packs. <___<

Also, I must be one of the 5 people on the planet that actually LIKED the Horse Armor in Oblivion. Those armors looked badass (especially if you had a dark horse).

Could you circumvent this by wearing the grey fox mask while committing said crime?

To be on topic. I've actually never regretted a DLC purchase. I'm very selective about which ones I get though. I've never paid money for a cosmetic dlc though, so that helps.

It is kinda funny to think back how many people were angry because of that horse armor.
If they only knew how much worse it would really get after just a few years...

I was so disappointed in the season pass I bought for Halo Wars 2.
It was mostly just more characters(which had unique units and powers). It was neat and all to play as different characters but the developers intentionally left out the best DLC for the game which was story DLC.

You see, the season pass was only for the DLC that was released within six months after the game launch.
And they released the story DLC like a week or something after the season pass expired, which was a dick move IMO.

Some of the later Borderlands 2 DLCs were pretty weak. IIRC it was the thanksgiving one that had a "raid boss" that was (very minor spoiler but just in case you'd want to be surprised by it) standing still listening to a 20+ minute brain melting story-time from Mr Torgue's grandmother.

but no, I think the "most worthless" one must have been ~$3 for more BG1 portraits. you get 6 whole portraits, described as "a world of possibilities".

Injustice 2 season pass.

The content was okay but I stopped having fun with the game around the time the first character got released. Ended up trading it in before all of the pass characters had even been released.

That was a pretty decent one though. It's one of the better ones by far. A little quest, some nice story bits and some ok armor/weapon. It's better than probably all the others aside from Shivering Isles.

The Max Payne 3 "Season Pass" was very similar. To my knowledge, they actually never released any story dlc at all (season pass or otherwise). The entire dlc collection ended up being a bunch of skins for multiplayer which was pretty much dead from the start.

One of the DLC houses in Oblivion, the mage one I think, you could get some handy stuff out of it like a permanent companion but otherwise it was a bitch to actually use as you had to walk up a mountain to get there.

There's more btu I can't remember.

but if you commit a crime in the armor you have to do a quest chain before you can wear it again. that makes it useless to 99% of players

I actually agree with this. Shivering Isles was frustratingly confusing (of course, spoilers aside, that was kinda the point). Knights of the Nine took a little while to get into, but once you got momentum, it was a decent story, with a pretty awesome ending.

None, because I refuse on principle to buy DLC. It has become a horrendously manipulative and abusive system, which was the exact sort of thing being warned about 10 years ago with Oblivion's horse armour and pretty much everything predicted back then has come to pass.

The only DLC I've ever downloaded was either free or included as part of a GOTY Edition.

If you're talking about "Awakening," then same here. The main story was actually pretty good, but the DLC was just watered-down, more-of-the-same content. Thankfully, I got it for free in a "complete" bundle.

Aside from that an outfit in some game I ended up not liking enough to use. Forget the game.

I've barely bought any DLC, partly because I see it as worthless. However, I wasted money buying LBP at release for Sackboy skins I could have just got in the GOTY version down the road or even bought cheaply later on.

I've barely bought DLC in general. Do Rocket League loot boxes count or are we talking about "content" DLC, not cosmetic stuff? Cause those were a waste. I only spent like $5, but still. I feel bad for anyone who had the misfortune of getting addicted to loot boxes.

I've gotten some Rocksmith songs that turned out to not be fun to play or my tastes changed and later on I just didn't like the song in general.

It's a shame what happened to Battleborn. If it weren't for being so outclassed by Overwatch, it might have had a decent chance. Of course, that wasn't the first time that a decent game got killed by a better alternative (and it won't be the last).
