Paradox Interactive has a very good model with DLC and they do just fine as a company. They make great games, have a very loyal customer base, and make a good amount of money.
Codename Entertainment does a pretty good job too. Everything can be unlocked through play, but they offer microtransactions.
This crap does not wash, and neither does your explanation of it. If people in the industry are worried about products not making enough money, then they need to improve the product, not demand more money for each product that comes out.

Steam is the future of gaming for real video game fans. You can free yourself from the grasp of big game producers who stagnant the market with their half finished AAA games.
PS: # EA! No seriously! They can go DIAF (and I haven't used that acronym in forever). I know how you feel on the Battlefront side because I was suckered by them there too.

I think when a game is purchased, you should get the entire content of the game, editing included
This is where pc takes the cake from consoles, still prefer computer gaming.
I've played many games in the past(think it was PS1)(had no life when it first came out) where I literally needed to run to the store to purchase a magazine to advance, or to find button combo's not available in the game's instructions.
This sort of trickery has been around for a very long time.
in the end i wish people would stop trying to ban, censor, etc whatever it is they dont like, and instead just have an opinion on it and be vocal with that opinion on why u think its a product people should avoid. let people make their own choice and if after hearing your opinion they still purchase it and get burned by the very things you were vocal about, they might listen to u more closely the next time around.
awe always one for the dramatic. you realize your talking about VIDEO GAMES! if the consumer continues to support such things then they obviously want it.
again let the free market work itself out cause right here is a great opportunity for you to actually get up and do something about it if u really want change. go out and start learning to code, make new connections within that industry and build each other up and make that game that doesnt exist for people like you.
