Does paid DLC suck now?

Or am I just getting worse at games?

This June I’ve had the chance to play a lot of DLC and it strikes me that neither of them I’ve played were very good. Vega has pointed out to me that maybe I just suck but in both cases in the video, the game’s DLC isn’t in step with the main game.

In Splatoon 2’s main mode you go around inking the floor in your color and fight 4 real players who are trying to ink over your work. The Octo Expansion is a challenge room where you have to pop balloon, roll around 8-balls, and finish obstacle courses. Not really the same as the main game and it’s extremely difficult compared to the original campaign.

Far Cry 5 is a play it your way kind of game, but the Vietnam “Hours of Darkness” DLC heavily emphasize on you using stealth while simultaneously gives you the power to call in airstrikes. Then the ending is an open conflict.

What do you think? Is the bar being lowered? Is this just temporary? Does Chet just suck?
