    Mica, I love you, and I know (think) this is your first roundup alone, but you kind of need to pause a little more between stories or they're gonna seem to run together. 


    Story DLC is good and I feel it's often done better than the core game, especially when it's Bioware. Shadow Broker, Citadel, Awakening, and Trespasser were amazing. $50 map packs that you don't even get to play most of the time? Not worth it. I got into Halo kind of late and bought the Reach map packs only to find Noble and Defiant weren't being used in matchmaking anymore and with the exception of one Firefight map, that money was wasted. 


    I'll pay for single player story DLC. Multiplayer addons do nothing if behind a pay wall.

    I feel like Hitman would have done better without the episodic bs.  Saying it as a person that did not buy it specifically because of that.
