We could do the "why" game forever... It really goes with whatever "people" fancy or not.. I do agree with the whole DLC being usually crap (and I won't even mention games that have DLC almost as expensive as the original game, for very little added content". But anyway, we could also go with "Why do people always expect games to update weekly?" I can see if a game is broken/unplayable, so one would want to have a fix out as quickly as possible. But just look through the forums on here (or on Steam for that matter) and the constant threads on "when is 0.xx coming out?" in various forms... Yes, getting new versions could be exciting, and like a lot of people, I do check from time to time to see if there's anything new on the next release, but it doesn't stop me from playing the game in its current state, and quite frankly, I see no point in the constant/numerous threads asking for the next release. It's as if people think that creating yet another thread will accelerate the release of the game.
In my opinion, whether it's DLC content, pay to play, weekly/monthly new releases, it really makes no difference. People will want more, preferably for free, and will still constantly be demanding new updates and be impatient about the release dates.
My biggest beef with the constant updates/releases is mostly for the modding community. We've seen it in other popular games (Minecraft comes to mind) where they had so many releases that were breaking mods that modders eventually got fed up. They spent all their time updating their mods to make it "work" with the new weekly release rather than adding new and interesting features. Factorio is not much different. Every time there's been an update that required modders to update their stuff, those of us who play with mods had to either play vanilla for a while, or wait (and complain in some cases) about this or that mod that hasn't been updated yet.
So why do people always go to the DLC model? Why do people always expect all the bugs to be fixed, yet still want new major features every time there's any update? I don't know.. because we live in a society where people just always want "more" of whatever?
