Oh, I didn't know we have a new Rocksmith section. Might as well move this thread to that section.

I'll agree that the Rush pack deserves a "pack of the year" award. :)

I haven't downloaded all of the songs, but I second Brick235's nomination of the Rush pack for DLC artist pack of 2012.

There were a lot of great songs available for download in 2012, though.

my favorite pack...suprisingly for a 40 odd year old dad of 4 is Avenged seven fold....hadnt heard of them untill the huge talk on here, ended up buying the full pack and am pleased to say i'm getting 80k + on nightmare and afterlife but beast and the harlot will not budge over 40k "yet" but love playing them closely followed by foo fighters and nickleback. Looking forward to a great year of more new favorites.

What's Going On and Give Up the Funk are the bass songs of the year, with a special nod to YYZ, Space Oddity, and Jessica

Agreed

I've not bought What's Going On, or anything from the Funk pack yet - was kinda expecting one to get chosen for a challenge one day soon. I own Space Oddity and Jessica, but have not yet attempted them on Bass partially because I have been psyching myself out in the case of Space Oddity... I should just bite the bullet and get down to it.

Probably better to just have one post and edit it with each new release. That way other people can contribute to thread too. Otherwise it could get real messy. And might as well go ahead and make a new thread for 2013 anyways. :)

tl;dr, If I were to take one pack it would be the Rush Pack. for the best DLC Id say Jessica but only because Cliffs of Dover and Carry on Wayward Son were released in 2013 :)

Don't give me that tl;dr attitude. This is the current list of the best of the best of 2013.

Don't give me that tl;dr attitude. This is the current list of the best of the best of 2013.

Well, the problem I see is that this list is quite hard to read and its quite hard to see what changes from one list to the other.

If I were you, I would do one initial post, and in subsequent post I would only post what has changed.

I would also do categories, like Song of the month or Pack of the Month

WDYT ? :)
