cause we only see a lot of "Left 4 Dead" clones as our 4 player co-op/online survival games like Payday: the heist for example. We hardly see a game that is an RPG/FPS game with 4 player co-op/online shooter with 1 million or more guns in the game with unique abilities.
because they copied the diablo format and made it an fps.
This may just be me, but I never saw Borderlands as a game you should or might buy. Even with how many times it gone on sale I've never even thought about buying it.
I'll be honest I haven't gotten past the first few missions without getting bored out of my mind and quitting.
I've never beaten the game. Most I've gotten out of it was 2 hours.
Borderlands has been one of the best games I play with my friends since GMod, left 4 dead, etc.
It's ridiculous an silly fun
Are you kidding me? Dead Island is almost a rip-off of Borderlands in terms of style and gameplay.
Like you wouldn't say BL2 and MW3 were competing. They are both shooters but one is a lootfest RPG and another is a arcade shooter.
BL2 is pretty unique. Thus not having very much competition in its area.
You want a lootfest RPG shooter? Borderlands is one of the few options one may have.
Guys ea gamer changes his post to goatse.
Fix your shit.
it's one of the most reptitive games I've ever played
it's a 4 player MMO
I could never get into it
I loved it, until the game decided to not autosave 5 hours of game play. Haven't touched it since. I get so angry.
does anyone else see the Goatse?
NO I SWEAR THERE'S GOATSE ON THIS PAGE
I think the mods edited it out.
Its gone for me at least.
You might find similar looking guns from the same manufacturer, but a tediore gun will look completely different from a vladorf gun:
This might sound weird but the ironsights in BL2 sexually arouse me.
rpgs traditionally have a huge focus on story; diablo and borderlands didn't so much. rpgs traditionally have an abundance of interaction outside of combat; diablo and borderlands didn't so much.
i'm not saying borderlands is bad; far from it. but to ignore the fact that borderlands's shtick is straight ripped from diablo and games of that nature is ridiculous, and the primary reason that there's not already a shitload of copies of that - because it's a very specific combination.
Borderlands was one of those games that I never really felt compelled to stick around and play more than 35 hours in, despite being a game that clearly supported more playtime. It was a mostly pretty damn great 35 hours especially as a co-op game, but after playing a good chunk of time in it, you kind of experienced all you needed to get out of the game. IMO, it was worth the $30 I spent on it.
But a lot of aspects in Borderlands were heavily wrapped up in a "testing the concept" package, so there was a lot of potential depth to the game that just wasn't there, that contributed to me losing interest. And then certain aspects of the game were just luke warm or bad, such as some of the gunplay, everything is a desert, the last boss, etc. Granted they put what they had together rather well and it was a solid experience, but I always got the feeling that they could have really expanded on a lot of the core experience and depth the game has.
Which is why I'm super excited for Borderlands 2, because it basically goes, "yeah, that first game was a pretty successful proof of concept. Time to go all out and really tie up any loose ends or bad points the first game had! And then on top of that we'll add a whole bunch of new shit too"
It's a game best enjoyed with friends, but if you're playing alone it does have a slow start
Getting 4 people to play the entire game with you is very difficult because real life gets in the way.
As for the statement, Hellgate: London did the Diablo-as-an-FPS first. It was shit, but it did it first.
