Rfv-sense: (video games, derogatory) Purchasable downloadable content that provides only cosmetic effect, with no actual enhancement to gameplay or to player stats.
- Full story here. Apparently, this Horse Armor extension has become a running joke. Indeed, people regularly refer to it as a game extension pack that's not worth to buy. But it's far from being a common noun; most often, I find it capitalized (Horse Armor) and/or between quotation marks.
- Some examples, though :
- destructoid.com: "Skyrim DLC to feel like expansion packs (no horse armor)"
- mcvuk.com: “Right now, when you mention downloadable content, someone will mention a horse armour joke, and we need to get around that”
- joystiq.com: "What they should have done is put all of those costumes in one pack and sell it for 5 bucks as opposed to each costume costing a dollar because right now, it's just another horse armor: over-priced costumes that really add nothing to the game."
- computerandvideogames.com: "This is little more than another horse armor scam."

- Isn't there some rule that says it's okay to have an obvious literal sense when there is also a non-obvious one (the second video game sense here)? Equinox ◑ 19:02, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
