Sorry for actually posting again... but people replied.
Save the holier than thou routine.
No, else I'd probably get banned because of what I'd reply to you.
Lets go back in the context:
Someone way back a couple of pages said "Why hasn't anyone played the new DLC yet?"
To which I replied "ME2 doesn't have enough lasting appeal for people to swarm the latest DLC after this long"
Then it went into a shitstorm of me trying to explain why this game doesn't have the appeal needed to survive for a year and a half of sporadic DLC.
For other questions:
- Yes this happens to
every game, but then again, most games don't have DLC coming out years later. I guess the same thing happened with the last DLC of Mass Effect 1. I know I didn't purchase Pinnacle Station because by the time it came out, I didn't care much for Mass Effect 1 anymore since it had been at least a full year since I last played it.
- True, Baldur's Gate did help Dragon Age. I guess it is possible to re-ignite the appeal of a game. Although I'm not sure if that actually made people replay Baldur's Gate (as opposed to play DA:O)
