Step one: Turn on your Xbox and see that Modern Warfare is one sale. Remember that you have liked the series and give it a shot.
Step two: Wait for the game to download, it’s only 80 GB and you have a pretty good 300 MB/s down so it doesn’t take all to long.
Step three: Oh the game tells me I can start it before it has downloaded completely, maybe there is a training mission so you can learn the ropes before the game starts.
Step four: The game starts and then promptly tells me that it has to download everything to do anything… thanks for telling me before that I can start..
Step five: Wait some more for the game to finish downloading
Step six: Oh the game is completely downloaded. Let’s get it on!

Step ten: Cry

Step twelve: Campaign Pack 1 is downloaded. CAN I PLAY NOW?
Step thirteen: Nope. nope nope nope : “YOU HAVE TO DOWNLOAD CAMPAIGN PACK 2 YOU IDIOT OTHERWISE I CAN’T START SINGE PLAYER FOR YOU” (another 15 GB)
Step fourteen: Waiting for another DLC to download to actually start a game..
