My rule of thumb has always been 3 hours per dollar spent, for games as well as DLC. The very best games and DLC alike have given me a cost per hour that my grandmother could have afforded when she was a child in the 1930s going to the movies for a nickel.

Anyone else use video games as equal parts timekiller and actual clock?
