The problem is too many people DO buy this crap, ruining it for the rest of us. The "addicts" as it were, and that's the only reason I can see for them continuing to support these.
Games should be complete on release, not short on content so it can be sold later for more. The budgets for these big games like CoD is ridiculous seeing how little content is actually in them. They might as well just leave out the SP part of CoD now and save us all $10, it's certainly obvious they only put that fraction of the development into that part anyway.
Sell the SP for $10 and the MP for $50, so the people that only care about the MP get $10 off and those who only want the SP just have to pay for the 4 hrs of content they're getting.

Very well said, my feelings as well. I definitely like your "pricing plan" as I wouldn't mind paying 10$-15$ for a quick interactive SP experience, as I hate CoD-style MP. But I'll be damned if I'm paying $60 for a last-thought, ~4-hr long "campaign" (usually with more cut scenes than actual gameplay); some famous voice actors; and absolutely NO replayability or mod-ability.
But I guess that would make too much sense lol
