I can afford 2.

Well, I already have Operation: Anchorage and The Pitt. I was thinking Point Lookout because it had received a high rating from Gametrailers, and Broken Steel because it continued the storyline. But Mothership Zeta looks super fun with blasting aliens and escaping jail, but I heard it was very linear and I kinda like branching off and getting side quests done. Give me your opinion on the final three and which two I should buy!

    BS is your best bet if you want to continue storyline. Some great fun too.

    Edit: As for your second one, MZ is where it's at.

    Is the DLC for PC? If so, getting Broken Steel is fun for continuing the game after its done with the main quest. But getting it for the increased level cap isn't necessary.

    For your second one, get Point Lookout. It offers a good main quest and several other side quests. Mothership Zeta is really linear and *possible spoiler*
    the weapons you get aren't that great.

    Get Point Lookout as your second one if you want another "area" to run around in.

    Broken steel first and foremost because of new level cap and the ability to free roam after the game is done. That way you can do quests you missed.

    Broken Steel! It's a must, it makes the game have a non-linear ending, meaning you can continue playing after beating the game. It also adds a level cap of 30, more perks, and 5 hours of more play time.

    Point Lookout is also very interesting, try em all out.

    Gah for some reason Broken Steel is not downloading.

    But I have Mothership Zeta. It's good so far I guess but I didn't get very far before my game crashed. Fucking Steam hates me. D:

    A mod can also easily get of the level cap and you can play indefinitely! Same thing with the perks.

    But never mind that, Broken Steel is a good expansion.

    Broken Steel is a must, and if you love quests, get Point Lookout. If you prefer visuals and aliens Mothership Zeta is the best choice for you.

    You sir, fail at reading.

    I suggest what other people said. Broken Steel gets rid of not being able to play more after the end, raises the level cap, and gives you more main quest missions to do. Both Operation Anchorage and Point Lookout are really swell because of all the items you can get that make you a god. However. DO NOT GET MOTHERSHIP ZETA. It's probably the worst out of the lot. It's an extremely linear experience that either confines you to following directions, a guide, or a set path to something. Plus the weapons are just like the normal weapons just meant to do extra damage on the aliens' shields.

    i have all of them and the fact that you can keep exploring the space ship after missions is very nice and could even be used as a player home so i think it is better than anchorage
