Most of the time it costs about as much as a movie ticket, and 9 times out of 10 you'll get more entertainment hours out of DLC content than you would with a 2 hour movie. I don't see anyone lambasting the existence of movie theaters. Of course I have a job, and I also realize that just because a company offers something doesn't mean I have to buy it.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, you need a change in perspective if this outrages you.
I agree 100% with the original post. New Vegas is incredible, I don't understand the negative reactions to it. I save often with multiple slots, so even the occasional bug ends up being funny instead of soul crushing.
