Btw sushi striker was announced at E3 last year, making it not a new game.

And DLC isn't a game, Olimar

Depends on what your definition of a “game” is. Dlc can sometimes encompass a new gaming experience, such as how octo expansion is its own game mode and story etc, while sometimes dlc can be less, such as added in-game items or features. This case is definitely the former.

It may be a new gaming experience, but it's an expansion pack, not a standalone game. Unless you can play it without already owning a previously released game, it's nothing more than new content.

It in and of itself is a game. What you need to play the game is an irrelevant point to make, because all video games have some sort or requirement to play. You must own the console, have controllers, etc. Just because you have to buy the rest of the game to activate it doesn’t disqualify the experience of an expansion game as a game itself. If anything, it’s better than having to buy a second cart and pay more for either a physical release or a digital sale that would have to include more of the original game.

Yeah, but equipment costs are not equivalent, it's like saying you need to buy a car in order to drive it, or have a phone to make a phone call. Like, of course you need the console to play video games. The thing is with this you're essentially spending $80 to play it, when if was a standalone product you'd only spend $20, maybe $30.

You’re missing my point pretty hard there. Requirements to get the game running do not add value or devalue the content of the game itself. Octo Expansion still will include its own extremely extensive story mode that is separate from the current splatoon 2 gameplay. Yes you need to own Splatoon 2 to own it (just like you would need to own the console to boot it) but it stands as it’s own game.
