Sessler's Soapbox: DLC is Giving Games a Longer Lifespan


Posted May 20, 2009 - By Patrick Roche-Sowa

It seems like every game that I end up playing obsessively has been getting downloadable content that makes the game even larger. This is great news for me, maybe not so great news for my wallet and my social life.

In other words, more games should do it more often. Press play and let us know if you agree.
