    [Megathread] Borderlands 2

    MOD HIJACK! Please keep all discussion for Borderlands 2 in this thread. Thanks! -sj


    I don't get it, someone explain to me why this game (which to me doesn't look that great) is getting such praise. I never played the original so that could be my problem but still, everyone I talk to is excited about it, every EB store has posters everywhere about it and every site is advertising it. So tell me, what is so damn great about this game?

    Sell a man a fish, and he can eat for a day, teach a man to fish, and you lose a great business opportunity.

    It's a great coop FPS with RPG elements in it... It's pretty much the only in it's genre that has done coop good. Then the art style is just adorable

    Did you play the first game? it's the most fun i have had playing a game online with friends that i have had since my best friend moved to texas 3-4 years ago. Plus the DLC means that it can be played for a very long time.

    Pretty much this. It's quite the unique experience and is a lot of fun. However, the new one's ending just HAS to be better than the first....

    aye first one was good , too bad they had to go dubstep for the trailer huge turn off imo.
    lets hope they keep all the good stuff from the first game instead of full easy lolmode.

    story, art style, coop, coop yeh said it twice, but only 1 in its genre that done it good, enemies, loads of guns, humor. If you never played it go play borderlands, watch gameplays watch trailers (doomsday trailer for B2 was amazing, better then the current commercial on TV atm)

    If you do not like it, leave it at that. If you do u know what we are talking about that do like it
    Do not worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older it will avoid you.

    It's a fun co-op FPS that incorporates character progression.

    It's great fun in coop that's why.

    BL is hands down the best console co-op game i have ever played. it deserves every once of praise they give it. the rpg elements with the fast paced shooting and all the oddball elements mixed in make it an amazing experience

    Because people hype up everything these days, even things that were mediocre to begin with. Then when the follow up isn't made out of platinum with 10 years worth of content, they feel justified in flipping out about it.

    The first one was a pretty great couch co-op experience. I expect this one to be the same.

    It appears to be doing an Assasin's Creed.

    Listening to the issues people had with the first game and actually improving them (instead of just ignoring) to create a richer gaming experience.

    Thus if you liked the first game, chances are you are going to be hyped for the sequel.

    Is it worth getting if you prefer solo play? I'm not a big fan of co-op, my pace is...neurotic.

    As much as I loved Borderlands, I haven't looked into Borderlands 2 much. Playing too many games and not enough money Maybe I'll snag it a year later on the steam sale with all the DLCs like I did the first game.
    If there's one thing World of Warcraft players hate more than people who don't play, it's people that do play but not as much as them.

    Maybe. I'd suggest looking at some gameplay videos of the first one and see if it looks like something you're interested in. Even solo I enjoyed the hunt for loot -- but for me it was all about playing with friends.

    The first one was fun as hell, I bet i put almost 200 hours of game play into it within the first week of owning it (yes no-life alert). I'm stoked to see how sweet the 2nd will be.

    Because it's a amazing open world and probably the only RPG-shooter as far as i know. Oh, hellgate: london perhaps but that's dead.

    Because borderlands was/is the best game of its genre by a factor of 10? Maybe?
