DLC are fine when they are really good unfortunately that's rarely the case because they often are goodies which split the community. With add-ons, the community has only one more thing to buy.

DLC are like small expensive add-ons. For example an add-on costs half the price of the game ( 30 euros ) and you have new multiplayer maps, new weapons, new classes, new solo campaign and sometimes new modes.

In the DLC format, for roughly the same price you only have some multiplayer maps and some weapons, and rarely some modes or classes.
When DLC are really "cheap" it's just to sell virtual goodies which were not long to make.

And please note that multiplayers map and weapons are really cheap to make, so no that's not fair for the customer.

I also found the new "season pass" business method really abused : a game now costs ( Black ops 2 ) 59,99 + 49,99 = 109.98 euros ! For the game + some maps.
Yes, you can only buy the game but you will be with the minority of the community, and it has still costed you 59,99 euros for a PC game !

So I don't like DLC at the moment but if someone makes a real DLC ( = size of a real add-on ) with a fair price ( less than 30 euros ) that will be good.
