Handsome Jack is the best villain because I would like to kill him very much. Few games really instill that kind of ire in me.

i mean shooting the bad mans and then having them fall down feels like a chore because you need a new gun every level (which will probably suck)

that's really only a serious problem in BL2 and the pre sequel. in BL1 weapons could stay effective for 10 levels or more depending on what it is.

its fun to play with friends, and it was nice because i played it on a console when a friend got it so i "got" it for free

i actually didn't like the second one as much because it felt like they just leaned into the memes instead of actually making the game better or more fun

that said it's a loot-farm-fest and if you're not into that you might not like it!

if you ask me? borderlands never made you grind the same mission a millions times for some legendaries so you could increase your level, and your abilities are actually powerful and can kill poo poo.

Borderlands (PC, PS3, XBOX 360) is an intense hellride through the capital wasteland! Bawoawow *guitar solo*. The world freaking ended dude!!!!! Now you are a Man with a GUN, go out and SURVIVE. If you can.

Nerds are easily amused.

So when some dev comes up with a group of obnoxiously "trying too hard to be funny" wacky batch of characters (starting with Claptrap on down) and decor, the nerds flock to it like they do with any other meme poo poo. Add in simple-cliche-FPS gameplay based around collecting and hoarding (nerds love collecting, y'see), and that's the deal with Borderlands.

Not that it's bad, but it's pure sugar even by video game standards.
