Being playing it for 4 days now.
Best game of the year, most fun and entertaining and addictive and and...
There is a Psycho dude that screams "Time to Play! Time to Play!" while rushing you with a pinless grenade, how awesome is that?!
First Person Shooter + Procedurally generated weapons (millions of different weapons stats and atleast a hundred weapons that actually feel different gameplay wise)
You dont even have to have valid cd-key to play online, you can make an account instantly and joy the fun!
Random generated Loot with millions of possibilities in a FPS game is mindblowing. You can always get something better, cooler, try different things. You can duel people at any time. You can play on an arena! You can race people and blow them up with the cars! Lots of bosses!
Where else can you find a Marines, Zerg, Protoss and Starship Troopers bug like race fighting each other in a First Person Shooter?
It will have Downloadable Content. People will mod it.
My game feels and play like an hybrid of unreleased Starcraft Ghost (Siren Class) with Crysis/Section 8.
I even added a third person camera to my game.
You can repeat stuff over and over, alone or with friends. Its a bit like Far Cry 2, but you always get new random loot, so its not as pointless.
The most epic and hilarious easter eggs in a while.
This blow Hellgate London Marksman gameplay by a long stretch, I cant even start to describe. Hellgate London shooter part sucked, in Borderlands its up to par to any top first person shooter game out there but with the addiction of persistant vertical character progression instead of stupid "unlocks a silencer, unlocks a scope" fuck balance design decisions limiting power of characters making everyone "balanced". In Borderlands the more you play the better stuff you find, thats the X factor of it that separate it from those "competitive first person shooters". In Borderlands my skill counts too, but my equipment gives me reason to play it more than the thirty minutes I spend on other FPSs.
And dont get me started on Huxley instanced gameplay and linear drop tabbles. Borderlands blows that fish out of the water.
If you had the opportunity to play Borderlands, say so in this thread!
Edit: here is a screenshot of me testing some of the 400 weapons I looted after a while, I dropped all of them to the ground and started testing one by one, and I tell you, each one is different, either reload, refire rate, sound, scope, no scope, magazine, colors, textures, some bullets fire straight, some fire in spiral ways, others are homing, some uses ammo, others dont, some regen ammo, others ricochet of walls, others explode, some fire incendiary bullets, others use toxic, others causes an eletric discharge, some fire one rocket, some fire cluster rockets, some are automatic, others fire in bursts, some weapons have blades and melee weapons attached for increased melee damage, etc... ITS RIDICULOUS, YOU NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THAT.
