DLC: You either love it, or you hate it. Here are seven games that will clearly steer you towards the latter camp.

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair - Music Packs

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair is a game for masochists. It takes half an hour to plough through any one of its levels, and when you're invariably crushed by the hard-as-nails boss at the end you're sent straight back to the start. On a similar note, only self-abusers would shell out 160 MS Points for the Music Pack 1 DLC, which adds a whopping five tracks to the game. While the tunes themselves are fairly decent, being culled from Symphony of the Night and other classics, it's hard not to see this as Konami attempting to milk their most ardent fans - especially as another five tracks were lumped into the originally-titled Music Pack 2.

I got those Dragon Age DLC via the Ultimate Edition of Origins. Not bad DLC if you ask me, but the Darkspawn Chronicles is terrible...

I'd also put in a mention for 'Gears of War 3 - Complete Gun Skin Collection'. £31 for the entire gun-skin collection! At least with games like Black Ops, you can see the gun-skins up close, and it's free! (and customisable)

Also, Capcom should be rounded up a key culprits for money-grabbing DLC packs. From having to pay individually for 2 additional characters in Marvel VS Capcom 3 (and in Ultimate MvC3), to paying way too much for costume packs for any one of their fighting games, Capcom really take the p*ss. Compare that to fighting games like Tekken 6, complete with a (crappy, but welcome) campaign mode, a character creator, hundreds/thousands of appearance customisation options and over 40 characters as standard. Grrrr

That Katamari nonsense broached the basic rules that all achievements have to be earnable with the base game alone. Extremely annoying.

Otherwise, nice feature!

A nice list, though I enjoyed Mothership Zeta. I think the Gears 3 Weapon Skin pack would fit in perfectly. It contains weapon skins, the complete set costs 3600 (!) MSP....

The horse armour obviously had to make an appearance.

Pretty entertaining feature guys.

Bethesda were just horsing around. People still had a 'mare when they saw the pricing and accused them of flogging a dead horse when they kept it at that price. Most of their mane DLC after that seems to have been more stable, I guess they've learnt from their time in the field.

I still live in hope that, one day, Bethesda will reveal that Horse Armour was a dastardly plot to get people to buy it ironically.
