DLCs have become a major part of game releases and the games themselves these days, and it’s almost a given that developers will support their games post-release with DLC packs. Sometimes these packs absolutely suck, making us pay money for a stupid horse saddle (Elder Scrolls IV, I’m looking at you), while sometimes we get an entire full fledged mission with a great story that is as good as the entire game itself (like Lair of the Shadow Broker for Mass Effect 2). So here’s a list of what we believe are the ten greatest DLC packs of all time.

Enjoy the list, tell us what you think of it and which your favourite DLC packs are in the comments section below!

Please note that this list is not numbered, and all entries are listed in a random order, and in no order or preference or priority. 

Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony

GTA IV is a very controversial game. While the critics absolutely love the game without any reservations, there’s a huge split between the player fanbase. Some players love the game, while others say that it was an absolute disappointment when compared to predecessors like Vice City and San Andreas. However, most of the complaints that people had with GTA IV were all wiped away with Ballad of Gay Tony. With some of the most well designed missions in the franchise’s history, many added hours of gameplay, addictive multiplayer gameplay and more, it’s kind of a given that Ballad of Gay Tony would rank on this kind of a list.

Left 4 Dead 2: The Passing

With a fill fledged, full legnth campaign, an awesome Mutation mode, some very lovable character and absolutely brilliant writing- something that we’ve all come to expect from Valve games-, The Passing was as good a DLC as any, and almost good enough to outdo the original L4D 2. Agreed, the campaign felt a little too similar to the original game’s campaign, but it was a really enjoyable experience, one that we won’t soon forget.

BioShock 2: Minerva’s Den

BioShock 1 and 2 were both awesome games, and while 2 did not have as big an impact on people as 1 did, its Minerva’s Den DLC more than made up for the slight disappointment. The DLC pack had an amazing story with a long campaign that was extremely well paced. The level design was absolutely brilliant, and the same atmospheric feel that was prevalent throughout the previous BioShock games were present here too. The visuals were astounding, and everything about Minerva’s Den exuded polish. Definitely, Minerva’s Den is not just one of the best DLC packs, it’s one of the best games you will for some years period.
