Horse armor. Those two words are enough to get even the most staunch supporters of 'DLC' (downloadable content) riled up. That is because what it offers - Colorforms for your horse for $2 in real money - felt like a rather blatant money grab. It seemed that Bethesda and Microsoft teamed up and said 'let's test this system by holding out including something trivial from the game, then offering it for a small sum and see how many suckers … errm, customers are interested'. While the DLC for Oblivion and many other games has greatly improved (though in many other cases it has not), the fundamental question of the 'value proposition' dogs every DLC release - and with good reason.
