    probubly the best DLC just for the fact you can keep going after your game is finished . also it kinda gives you the real ending of the game . you also get alot more . your level is now capped at 30 , new perks , more quests , new places to explore , new enemies . all in all the first DLC pack you should get is this one for Fallout 3 . its well worth $10 Full Review »

    Broken Steel is a must-have. Besides the story continuation, you can keep playing after finishing it, which is great. You face new mutants and ghouls and get new weapons. The level cap is now 30, motivating you to finish every quest you didn't do.

    Basically, get it to keep playing after finishing the story and reach lvl 30
