Yeah, exactly. You know how skins and such used to be acquired? By playing the damn game and earning them from quests, crafting them, reaching a certain level, or participating in events. Now it's nothing but a pathetic cash grab. I refuse to support any dev that sinks so low, and believe me there are several games I really wanted to play that I said "fuck that" and passed on once I found out they were loaded with trash "DLC" like that.THAT one I don't get. I loved Angry Joe on F-76's shop: "You want me to spend $25 on @Q#$$$$$$%^#$^ BLUE???" That should be free!!!" Ok, I completely understand the desire for customization, but I have no intention of spending any real money on decorations for anything that doesn't really exist.
I already gave (game dev/publisher) a few dozen dollars to purchase, why on earth would I give them any extra for a different wavelength in pixel output? It doesn't change any gameplay or give me any options. It's just a coat of paint.
And then we have games like Deus Ex Mankind Divided that go a step further on the trash trail. I wanted to play it after how good Human Revolution was, but then I saw all the "DLC" that was consumable one use items and I said "fuck that".
