For a long time i've really wanted to get borderlands, but being the poor college student that i am, i didnt want to pay full price for it. I was looking to get a new game when i saw that it was like 35 bucks at gamestop. THIRTY-FIVE!! Talk about a deal. Im a couple hours in (im at the part where u have to kill sledge) and ive got to say, this game is awesome! The shooting is good, the open world/rpg is great and it totally fills my need for shooting and RPG-ing. I can't believe i didnt get this game sooner. 
 
P.S. A BAZILLION GUNS!!!!!!!!!

Borderlands was mind meltingly addictive back in its prime. The huge DLC expansions didn't help squander any of the addiction either. I'd say I put around 200+ hours into Borderlands overall. I'm well past it now though, and I have a strong suspicion that the extra DLC Gearbox had planned isn't coming.

Borderlands for the win!
General Knox expansion is probably the best dlc/non expansion download ever made!
 
It's also worth the full 60 bucks imo, but get it at any price! It's a mustplay!

Yeah, there have been some really good offers for it on Steam before. Personally I really wanted to like Borderlands but could never get into it.

well considering how much worse the pc version is and the relative value of the euro to the dollar i think the gamestop price for the 360 version is still a better deal.

It's a really great game, I got it on PS3 when it came out then got it again in a Steam sale for £6 ;p

I got it for $3 during the Steam sale. It's a great game and even better at that price. :P

You must've bought the 2k pack.  I was tempted to do so as well but there was too much I didn't want, so I just got BS 1 & 2 and Borderlands + DLC, and only spent... wait a min--  Did I spend mor-?!  NOOOOOOOO!!!!

I haven't had any problem at all with the game this far. I really can't see how it could be better.

Also 10e equals 10d most of the time. Else it would equal 12d. lol.

No clue why people say the PC version is crap.  I have loved it from day one, no complaints.
