Now that I think of it, i've actually bought a few season passed when they went 50% off. I think the one I enjoyed most was ac3. Compared to the original game, the additions and story we're great in my opinion. It was definitely worth it

I've only bought 5 Season Passes from what I can remember now:

Max Payne 3 ($30 - got it for $25)
Halo 4 (came with the LE)
Borderlands 2 ($30 - got it for $10)
BioShock Infinite ($20)
Batman Arkham Origins ($20)

----

Max Payne 3's Pass was nice - despite the delays and the negativity around it. Halo 4's was nice since I love completing the Halo games and the second DLC had killer maps. Borderlands was only $10 for me since I did that whole promo for MSP when they were 1200 Points for $5.

I haven't gotten the full content for the last two, but so far, Clash in the Clouds from BioShock was surprisingly fun (I suspect Burial at Sea will be fantastic) and I think the Batman Pass will be worth it.

----

So overall, I think they are worth it depending how passionate you are about a game and how long you plan to play that game.

Yes, I do think Season Passes are worth it. The reason being is, is because Season Passes save you money, and if you like the game that has a Season Pass, then it's a win-win situation. You save money and you receive extra content all in one.

The only two I ever bought were a waste of money.

Borderlands 2 Season Pass and Defiance Season Pass.

It depends on if I really like the game and if I feel it's a good value. To date I think I have only bought 2 season passes. I'm just not buying much, if any, dlc lately.

I tend to buy season passes when they're discounted, so I think they're worth it.

This.

Depends who they're from. I will never buy a season pass from Capcom/EA but I might for Bethesda/Square Enix (if they did offer one that is).

AC IV pass that's on sale right now would be my third season pass purchase ever. Like others I only ever buy them on sale and for games I enjoy..or boost.

I got pretty burned by the BL2 season pass. I'd say some would be worth it, when they go on sale of course.

I've only ever bought 2; Max Payne's for 5ish discounted and Saints Row 4's discounted for 4.70 today. The Max Payne one was a bargain and the Saints Row one was decent.
I don't think they would be worth it full price and I'd only ever buy any season pass once all the dlc had come out.

I don't think I regret buying a single season pass. I think they're great.

For me, it all depends on how much I like the game. If I really like the game, I would buy a season pass, but if I like the game but don't play it that often, there's no reason for me to actually buy a season pass for it. If I hate the game, well, think that's kind of obvious.

I only buy them when they go on sale and of course for games that I haven't yet purchased any dlc for yet.

On the 360 I bought battlefield 3, borderlands 2 , gears judgment ( total waste of fucking money) and halo 4. Only bf3 was worth my it to me. Good content and for 30$ it was a good deal.

Well with the Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag season pass, Ubisoft did a good job with it. Apart from all the content you're getting for the game, you also get a discount on Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD.

If more publishers did this, there'd be little reason to bitch and moan.

Unless it's for a game I really like/am going to spend a great deal of time on (Borderlands 2 comes to mind), I don't bother with Season Passes that much. In fact, the only Season Pass I ever bought was for Borderlands 2.

I've had a few season passes. Even though they're supposed to save money, it seems that they just give the developers license to push out shit content. Borderlands 2, I'm looking at you especially.

I think it's hit or miss. I've bought at least 10 season passes, but only 4 of them at full price. If I really like the game and plan on playing the DLC on day 1, I'll get it. If not, I wait for a sale.

I think selling all extra content for only $10 less isn't that big of a deal. I like extra incentives like early access, not JUST new maps, or special stuff like getting 25% AC liberation when you get the AC4 pass.

I always keep in mind that one persons rip off season pass is someone elses deal of the year pass. They're made for the fans that know they'll be playing the dlc no matter what.

Only Season pass I've ever bought was for Bioshock Infinite. I was livid when I learned the DLC wasn't coming out for 5 months.
I could've sold the game to gamestop and gotten something else with the money spent on the season pass and gained from the sale.

Bottom line is: if there's a season pass for the game, make sure it doesn't make you wait too long for it.

It's the same conundrum as to whether a game itself is worth the cost. It totally depends on how much time you intend to spend on it.

I found out yesterday I had bought the Halo 4 map pass on release for 2000 points. Turns out I totally forgot and played around 2 matches before moving on to a new game. In hindsight that wasn't the best money I've ever spent

I find that a lot of Season Passes border on 'not really worth it' to me. The one season pass I had that I feel was worth it was for LA Noire. I'm considering the pass for Dead Rising 3 ($30 I think) because you get 4 single player story missions and it's like getting one for free. But from what I hear, $10 per mission is kind of a rip... I'm debating on the Forza 5 pass, but $50? Wow... Just...wow. Almost a whole game's cost for what I suspect they could have easily included in the main game? I'd feel dirty buying that and you can't make water hot enough to wash away the shame.

After purchasing several Season Passes and feeling cheated (not to mention being subjected to that Wolf Among Us fiasco), I only have one answer for this.


NO!!!!

I've bought a few Season Passes, each with varying degree of usefulness and value for your $:

Forza Motorsport 4: Was great until they released content outside of the DLC, Porsche Expansion Pack notwithstanding due to its sheer size. Either make a second Season Pass or include it all in the Season Pass, none of this middle of the road crap.

Halo 4: Came with the Limited Edition. 3 Map Packs sadly still never show up in Matchmaking (they never do), and the inclusion of another content pack (Champions Bundle) outside of the Season Pass felt like an afterthought on the part of 343i. Notice a pattern here?

BioShock Infinite: Only 3 pieces of content guaranteed, 2/3 released. CitC was a bit of a letdown due to limited replayability once all Blue Ribbons are earned. Burial at Sea Part 1 was fun but short. Hopefully Burial at Sea Part 2 really delivers and makes the whole Season Pass worth it.

Borderlands 2: Bought the Season Pass, then the content would not stop coming out. If there was a game that deserved a second or possibly even third Season Pass, it's Borderlands 2. Bought the GOTY Edition on release and it STILL didn't have all of the content. Insane for the support but ridiculous for taking the Season Pass idea as a joke.

Assassin's Creed III: A lot of content for this one, both in SP and MP. Didn't get much time with the MP pack but it's a nice addition. Each part of the King Washington DLC felt short by itself but when strung together makes for a surprisingly good narrative. Gameplay felt a but contrived at times but never stopped being fun.

Metro: Last Light: Plan on buying soon, will update once content is downloaded and played. Looks promising.

Basically if you're a huge fan and you already know you will get all of the DLC when you buy the game, then by all means go for the Pass to guarantee yourself all, or at least most of the extra content.

Honestly I've never seen season passes as worth it. Except for The wolf among us and season 2 walking dead. You save money buying the season passes for those two games. Atleast by 5$. I say it's worth it for those. When a new episode is released you get it immediately.

Season passes can be great. They also can be really bad. I am bought the season pass for forza horizon and loved it! By the looks of some games though the investment wouldn't show a good return over the year.

I don't mind them, you save money in the long term. However I don't want to spend $20 or on a season pass when it takes all the chapters of a game 8 months to release. Especially when I could buy games that are on sale at that time.

Only when they're on sale and the total saves you 50% or more for all the DLC. IF not, then it's not worth it to me, since I can just wait for a deal of the week to pick up the DLC at half off.
