BioShock 2


Minerva's Den DLC was basically a character study on AI and early computing, with INCREDIBLE visuals. The graphics alone are worth the price of the game itself, though opinion on Bioshock 2 itself is almost cleanly split down the middle: half of gamers love it, the other half think it shouldn't have been made. But almost all agree that Minerva's Den was a huge improvement.

Borderlands 2


Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep DLC is effectively another entire game where the entire world of Borderlands - the heroes, the villians, the weaponry, everything - is reimagined through Tiny Tina's skewed perspective.
