Actually, nothing really pissed me off more than Fallout 3's DLC. I don't mind the new content, but the fact that you need it to level to 30 was outrageous. The first perks I got were the ones that gave you extra experience (because as any experienced rpg'er knows, those are the first abilities you should purchase) I hit level 20 about 3/5ths through the game and the rest of the game just felt pointless. Every mutant I killed, every lock I picked, nothing. I didn't even bother with the sidequests, and half of the map is left unexplored. I mean, how hard is it to just add those levels if for no other reason than to be thorough? I was a pretty unstoppable killing machine at level 20, but shit, I like to become death incarnate when I play RPGs. Every ultimate weapon, high level, sidequests done to get super armor, whatever. And I want to work at it, even if there is a level cap, not halfway through the game. Top it off with Bethesda's horse armor, and their 30 dollar shivering isles pack? Money grubbing douchebags.
Someone also made the point that it's stupid to charge 7 dollars for something that you can only buy for ten. It just seems another way to squeeze more money out of us. Why not just let us purchase however microsoft points we want? Most of these things would be easily fixed, but they keep them in place because we don't have any other choice.
