From Skyrim to Mass Effect: Is DLC Ever Worthwhile?

For today's edition of Burning Questions, we're going to try something different.


While we usually have our weekly conversation/discussion/debate/verbal melodies via online chat and then put them on Kotaku, today we're going to do everything live. We'll be hanging out in the new discussion system, chatting with one another and maybe even you guys. So feel free to participate.

Today we're going to talk about DLC. Is it good? Is it evil? Is it somewhere in between? Probably. But why? How? When? Who? Those sure seem like some... burning questions.

Note: To watch the conversation in action, just keep hitting the Refresh icon below.

Update: The live chat is over, but we'll still be hanging out in the discussion system, answering questions and chatting it up with you dudes and dudettes!

Hello, Jason-bro! Here we are in the first Burning Questions to use the new discussion system. This should be interesting. So I guess I should also say:

Hello, Readers! You are also a part of this discussion. While Jason and I chat, feel free to weigh in and ask burning questions of your own. We're happy to let this thing branch out, if that's where the conversation takes us.

So: DLC. I've played a lot of DLC over the last five years, some of it good, some of it bad, a lot of it kinda middling. I say we start by talking about the most recent Big! Deal! DLC that you've played and I haven't: Skyrim: Dawnguard. You did not much care for it.
