Anyone know what the new bonus content is? I have played (and maybe replayed) the original version. Wondering if the GOTY version is worth me replaying it.

It wont give it me ...keeps saying I have the original game to go play it lol.

Lemme see what the addon stuff is...

Seems like Im not missing anything....

Tons of bonus content. The Game of the Year edition of Plants vs. Zombies adds even more fun to the package. You can make your own zombie with the Zombatar, and earn 20 achievements like Home Lawn Security and SPUDOW!

How about some free Peggle

Free until 8/5. I have to believe they're going to do better than that before August.

Was wondering if they had stopped doing this because that last one lasted many many months. And a DLC now for a game I dont own. Must want me to buy it.

Looks like this is dead. After the last Origin update the Free area and On The House link is gone.

not surprising - it was becoming verrrrry irregularly updated over the past year, and they were issuing mostly repeats

Not free but Battlefield 1 and all DLC is $5 now.

At least I think the DLCs are included...some say yes others no.
