Some people like to complain about the costs for downloadable content (DLC) for their favorite video games. But what many of them don’t think about is the work that’s involved to produce that DLC and how its pricing is really a bargain for what you get.

It’s understandable when some DLC packages are released, the vast majority of the public believe it should have been in the game to begin with. But that’s hardly the case with a game like Forza Motorsport 4 where new vehicles are being released along with customized creations that builders have built after the game came out.

So what all does it take for Turn 10 to add new cars to Forza Motorsport 4? Well, they’ve decided to release a video showing the process and a behind-the-scenes look at how some of the world’s most incredible cars are brought to life in the game. Maybe after checking out the video, you won’t have as many gripes to drop a few bucks on that DLC to virtually drive that car you’ve always wanted to hit the track with. However, paying to drive a virtual version of Rampage Jackson’s widebody Dodge Challenger SRT-8… well, we’ll reserve our opinion for now.

Check out the video after the break.
