The numbers say that yours is the minority view. Like it or not, IAP works really, really well.

And it can be done in a way that does not compromise the game design. These guys tried to do the most simple variant of that (try before you buy), they just executed very, very badly.

Heck, I wouldn't mind DLC at all if it provided decent value for money instead of costing $10 for a measly 1.5 hours of gameplay compared to the $60 for 40+ hours in the main game.

Well, I think DLC lets a small minority pay much more than a developer would ever ask for as a sales price. Like a $50 iPhone game would be crazy, but people really do buy that much content.

So even if most people do hate DLC... it just doesn't matter.
