This game get's it right, it's just plain fun, so far of what I've played it's has been a ton of fun, and does the rpg first person shooter thing right
Borderlands is fun
Yup, it's a very good first-person shooter/role-playing hybrid that gets the FPS elements right this time. The combat is brutal, fast, and tactical depending on the weapon modifications you make. I will say that the RPG character development is rather pathetic, it was such a missed opportunity by Gearbox. Still, it's one of the better shooters of this gen.

It deleted mah Roland's equipment! I HAD A PERFECT SUPPORT GUNNER CLASS MOD!
But yea, I really liked the game, like i said, GOTY 2009 for me
Yeah, Borderlands was probably my favorite game of 2009, but it didn't last past getting my main character (Roland) to level 50. Yes, I could have kept playing to beat the second playthrough, fully, but why? What would the point be? There's no achievement for that and there is no point in finding better weapons for a game I won't play. Maybe if they had some really competitive multiplayer (2v2, 3v3, etc) I would care what weapons my character had and such, but there was no pay-off to playing after level capping.
Plus, the "economy" was broken. I maxed out my money so early that I can't really remember having less than $999,999. The only thing I used my money on was grenades because ammo is everywhere and as a soldier I regenerate ammo.
I did play all of the DLC, which was also fun. Zombie Island was a great addition to get me back into a game I loved, but very short. Moxxi's Underdome Riot sounded a lot better than it worked out to be (spoiler alert: it's tedious). The Secret Armory of General Knoxx was the most expansive and content-rich DLC for the game and I loved it. However, I knock it only for the fact that they completely removed the fast-travel system that I used so heavily in the rest of the game. The humor and dialog was spot-on, as usual, and the increased level cap was fun to work towards. In the end, though, all of this DLC suffered the same fate that the main game did: it's short. You'll finish it wanting much, much more. If they can continue the life of the game extensively, whether it's through multiplayer or whatever then I will fall in love with Borderlands all over again.
Yeah, I love Borderlands. Bought it during the Steam Summer Peril Sale. Will probably have to get the new DLC when it comes out. Should also see if I can try the co-op someday. Beat it once alone, got a 2nd Play-through started for when I just want to snipe some fools with my corroding Sniper Rifle :D
What i like about games are support. Borderlands get DLC's and also patches with bug fixes, balance tweaks, level caps and more. I can't say the same for Dragon age. They just keep on coming with the DLC's, but not the patches. It is games like Borderlands that makes me more hyped on a DLC instead of an actually full game.
