I'd have to say the Dragonborn DLC for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I absolutely loved that DLC and completely worth every dollar I spent on it. A whole new area, more armor options, quests, access to a plane of Oblivion (Apocrypha), and new storyline. But IMHO, the best part was Apocrypha. With my maxed out gear and fully enchanted weapons and armor, maxed out talent trees, the enemies still gave me a challenge. Embarrassingly, I had to actually lower the difficulty down one level just so I could beat the final boss there. That boss is how a boss should feel like because, up to that point, the bosses bosses in that game felt like just slightly stronger enemies with a bit more health. It was such an a great DLC I actually enjoyed it more than the base game.

I played a destruction mage in Skyrim and I quit it because it was just too easy and no fun. I made another character and chose to go for the stealth/assassin type gameplay (Used primarily bows and daggers). That was the reason I had some trouble on him because I depended on being able to deal massive amounts of damage, or even kill them, before they detect me. It proved to be pretty fun and made for interesting use of tactics like "What order should I take out this mob so none of them detect me?" I always made it my goal in every dungeon to go through it without being detected at all.

There are mods that severely choke impact's ability to stunlock. Better Magic cuts it to a 1/3 chance but instead makes magic a lot more dynamic and levels up as you get stronger. It's a way better system than the original as you can't just stunlock every enemy to death but you're also more able to handle yourself.

I did like dragonborn. But the final Miraak fight was really glitched for me. I had to use several console commands just to get through the fight, it was very irritating and soiled the whole DLC for me. And the dragon riding left a lot to be desired.

I expected a lot more from the dragon riding. I expected to be able to control where it flew. I fantasized about flying across Skyrim. Nope, shitty AI controlled dragons. My hopes and dreams were crushed. I wonder if someone made a mod that fixed that? I honestly wouldn't be surprised.

I came in to say Dragonborn. It was just night and day.

The dlc for civilization V definitely made the game a whole lot better. The base game is all right, but the dlc is what makes it a great addictive game. It opens up more ways to play, more options in terms of factions and units and adds a lot of replayability to the game.

Pretty much any expansion pack/dlc for any of the Civ games made them better and more polished.

I don't like it when they release a new entry of Civ, with less features than the old one with expansions. When Firaxis does that, it makes me not want to ever buy a Civ game at launch until a GOTY edition comes out, because of their history of making content thin vanilla games and "fixing" them with paid expansions.

I agree, it's better to keep playing the old one and then picking up the goty edition of the latest one in a steam sale. I pirated beyond earth to try it out, but I got bored of it before I even finished one game.

Desert Combat vs Battlefield 1942. Nothing got me going like flying an Apache AH-64 all over those terrains.

Hey! I worked on minor weapon scripting and such for DC and EoD. Glad to see people out there still remember it fondly though I'm wouldn't necessarily put a mod under the DLC category :)

It's content that is downloadable so I'm putting it in that category so it can be placed in it's rightful place as badass gameplay :). lol

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a notably good standalone, though arguably not as good as the game it was based on.

A better ending for a game would be the Citadel DLC for Mass Effect. It's not an ending story-wise , but it's a better send off from the series than the actual five minute slideshow we receive at the end. The DLC brings the cast together one more time and produces a neat story, more dialogue, closure, and an atmosphere that left me satisfied with the game. If Bioware had put as much effort into the ending as they did into Citadel , Mass Effect 3 would have been received so much better.

I actually really liked the ME 3 extended cut ending. I agree that original before the free DLC made little sense, but I think that the ending is a fair ending. The whole idea of limited choices which each have a known harm is what made the ending great. You are never going to get a flowery ending, and you should have known that from the beginning of the game.

It's amazing what that DLC did for ME3. It really made me feel like there was closure and that the story was over.

It was a bit like Mass Effect the sit com. I never knew I even wanted to see it, but I did.

Not better than the original game, but Red Dead Redemption had the Undead Nightmare DLC. I remember it being around $8 or something, but it's a whole separate 6 hour campaign with other multiplayer options/modes as well. That was a great game. I'm still holding out hope for a follow-up and a PC port ffs.

I could have sworn I heard something that they were remaking red dead redemption remastered, but it could be a rumor.

Apparently the code is such a clusterfuck that it'll never be ported to pc. Maybe rdr2 will be on pc.

I love Red Dead Redemption, but god damn is undead nightmare amazing! I agree it's not as good as the vanilla game, but it's so different and so well done it feels like its own thing.

Lord of Destruction for D2. Copied the list since I couldn't remember all of the things it added.

  • Two new character classes: the Assassin and the Druid.
  • A fifth act with an additional act boss, Baal.
  • Many new items, including new weapons and new pieces of armor:
  • 33 different Runes,
  • Hundreds of additional Horadric Cube recipes.
  • Ethereal items that are normally more powerful than their standard counterparts, but they have lowered durability and cannot be epaired.
  • Charms that can be kept in the inventory and provide passive bonuses.
  • Class-specific items that can only be used by a certain character, e.g. Claws for an Assassin.
  • Additional unique and set items, including class-specific sets.
  • An expanded stash for storing items—two times the size of the original stash.
  • An alternate weapon/shield/spell setup that can be switched to via a hotkey in gameplay.
  • Hirelings can now follow the player through all the Acts. They can also be equipped with armor and a weapon, can gain their own experience (originally they leveled up with the player), can be healed by potions, and can be resurrected when killed.
  • The game can now be played at 800x600 resolution, up from 640x480.

This is what expansions are supposed to be. Once you've played the game with it it's impossible to go back to vanilla.

Seriously, LoD is hands down an example of a lovingly crafted DLC that improves the game 100%. Act 5 is so much better than all the other acts combined, I feel like the whole game is just trying to get to that point.

EDIT: weird that voat made me double post.

Definitely Enemy Within for X-Com. The game was a simplified version of the original without it, but the Enemy Within really gave X-com its own style and feel. It reinvigorated the whole game for me and made me play through the whole thing several times over!

I was skeptical of Enemy Within prior to its launch, thinking it was another hats pack or similar. Man, was I blown away but just how much it took the game to the next level.
