RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

Best DLC Add-On 2013

Mass Effect 3: Citadel – Best DLC Add-On 2013

Platform(s): PC, Xbox 360, PS3
Publisher: EA
Developer: Bioware
 
Quality DLC isn't always an easy thing to come by, but this year some of our most beloved franchises proved that it's possible to make add-on content that actually expanded the games we love. Out of all of our nominees it may seem surprising to some that Mass Effect 3: Citadel won out, but it really was one of the best things to come from that game. Although it doesn't add any closure to the main story it was able to provide levity to a fan-base who wanted more time with characters they loved. I've played a lot of Mass Effect in my lifetime and the Citadel DLC was still able to give me something I have never gotten in abundance from this franchise before: humor.

There have been many funny moments throughout the trilogy, but the dialogue for the main mission in ME3: Citadel, possible scenarios with love interests, and Easter egg events scattered around each set piece made me laugh out loud more than ever. Then there's the added bonus of throwing a party for your crew, which was ingenious because who hasn't played an RPG and wondered when the hell they get to unwind with their fellow party-members. All work and no play makes character development a dull ploy. It's also the only DLC that actually added to the game post-mission, which was a main gripe of mine for Leviathan and Omega. With Citadel you get an entire new area to explore and countless chances to reconnect with your crew post-mission. 

It's also the DLC that taught us one important fact. When all else fails, use a toothbrush.
