10 WEIRDEST Video Game DLCs We Can't Believe Exist

Paying for a nudity patch? Sounds like video games.

Downloadable content, or DLC, hit the gaming industry last generation and it has certainly proven it's here to stay.

Offering developers the opportunity to provide bonus story content, colourful cosmetic options or optional add-ons, sometimes these things provide hours of bonus content to a game you'd long since completed.

Over the years, we have seen many examples of DLC done right - for example, Skyrim's Dragonborn, Hearthfire and Dawnguard expansions - and many more tragic examples of DLC done wrong - The Sims 4's daylight robbery for a few pieces of furniture, for example.

As the industry keeps proving again and again, people will pay money (often ridiculous amounts of it) for the strangest things. One need only look at the possible $27,000 worth of spaceships that wealthy backers can unlock for Star Citizen and wonder if DLC has gone too far.

However, every so often, a product comes along that you just can't help but admire for the sheer weirdness of it. Perhaps it turns your favourite horror game into a circus, and you really want to hate it, but somewhere along the way, that hate turns into love.

Let's take a look at some of the most bizarre DLCs that people happily paid real money for in video games.
