As voting for the Golden Joystick Awards 2012 enters its final weeks, we take a look at each of the individual categories. Today is the turn of Best DLC category.
Best DLC shortlist:
Who are we voting for?
Matt Cundy (UK Editor): Pre-order bonuses don’t come much better than Hitman’s Sniper Challenge. Mastering the creatively crafted rooftop set-piece is as much about puzzle solving as it is about shooting men in the head with deadeye efficiency. There’s always the sense you can improve the strategy for maximum score potential, giving it that deadly late-night ‘just one more go’ factor.
David Houghton (UK Associate Editor): It's Portal 2's Perpetual Testing Initiative all the way for me. Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day. Give him a fishing rod and you'll feed him for life. The PTI is that fishing rod, providing one of the cleverest, most creative, most don't-want-it-to-end games of the generation with potentially unlimited content forevermore. And it's free.
Justin Towell (UK Content Editor): Skyrim: Dawnguard for me, if only for the undead horse you can acquire. Not too keen on traipsing around the Soul Cairn for hours on end looking for Soul Husks (and wondering when the Black Sabbath album it’s so clearly the artwork for is going to kick in), but then… it’s meant to be bleak. Good job vampire hunting is so fun.
That’s the DLC getting our votes, but what about you – who are you voting for? Tell us in the comments.
