DLC - Bad

This list is old and DLC is here to stay. There's no way I can keep up. Enjoy this old list.

A list of games with bad DLC. The goal of this list is to highlight some really bad DLC. DLC can be good, and it can be bad. DLC can take real development time and effort, or it can be costumes that are already on the disc. If a game is on Xbox 360, assume I am using the cost for Xbox 360. All prices are in US dollars. Games towards the top of the list are the games with the worst DLC. Map packs that contain maps already made for other games will have two prices: cost per map and cost per map assuming old maps were free. Free DLC and post-release support for a game go into consideration for list placement. The Sims 3 has very little free DLC and 4 retail additions, placing it ahead of Halo 3's numerous updates and free maps. This list is in three tiers: games with paid cheat and unlock codes, games with worthless DLC (paid skins for example), and games with a DLC scheme that is reasonable, taking into account development cost, release date of the DLC, amount of free DLC, and price of DLC. If a game has 10 free maps and one paid cheat code, it automatically is in tier one, higher on the list than any game that doesn't pull that bullshit. A "game of the year" edition with all DLC included (especially on disc) *may* cause me to remove the game from the list, depending on how bad of an offender it is.

I can agree with most of those... except Sonic and Sega Allstars Racing. $3 for a new character and track, plus music for it? and 200mb is so large, it can't be an unlock code. It's actual post-release content.

@PSOCecil: It also had $9 of unlock / cheat codes. Does it belong in my [underused] mixed bag list? For games with both crappy and good DLC?
 
The actual add-on content only took a month after release. It was probably planned before release, knowing SEGA.
