Today I officially beat Bloodborne The Old Hunters with the death of Laurence and it got me thinking about Brad's comment a week or two ago on the Bombcast. He asked if the $20 price tag for the DLC was worth the content/time for fans of the game. Since I recorded everything on my Twitch channel I know exactly how much time I spent on the DLC and how it was spent (fighting X boss, exploring area, doing PVP, etc.) since I can go back and look at the footage. I made a rough addition of the time and it comes out to about 24 hours of playtime. I think I beat Artorias of the Abyss around 15 hours and it was done with an underpowered character in NG+ just like The Old Hunters.
The other Souls DLC that rivals the content and quality of The Old Hunters is of course Artorias of the Abyss. I believe The Old Hunters surpasses Artorias of the Abyss in just about every possible category. It has more bosses, a larger environment to explore, more weapons, more equipment, more enemy types, and it's by far more challenging. The only thing Artorias of the Abyss has that surpasses The Old Hunters is the lore hype around Artorias, the Abyss and the events of the past.
What does everyone think? Is The Old Hunters DLC worth the price? How does it compare with the other Souls DLC?
