When it’s done right and not overpriced, video game DLC is an absolute treat. It offers a reason to revisit a beloved game through a new lens or using different mechanics.

I used to be somebody who would put a game down once the credits rolled and move on, not really considering dipping back in for DLC. Then I played add-ons like Mass Effect’s Lair of the Shadow Broker and The Witcher 3’s Hearts of Stone and realised how wrong I was. Those aren’t the DLCs we’re setting the spotlight on today, though, instead we’ll be talking about the DLCs that you probably overlooked for one reason or another. Maybe it’s because of when they released, maybe the game they spawned from was unpopular, or perhaps there was a different DLC for the same game that most people gravitated to instead.

Whatever the reason, we’re exacting some justice today and giving these DLCs the attention they deserve.
