I was a complete FPS virgin before Borderlands was gifted to me. But minutes after I connected to a public party’s server, I was hooked. Multi-player, the expansions, the zombies, the vehicles, the skill trees, and most of all, the GUNS! Just so many, hundreds of types and rare finds. I have a bank full completely of different alien weapons I found or was given. Rare and hard to find stuff that you can collect as you go? No wonder I love this game. Yeah, I got nerdy about it. I loved this game. And I loved finding all the weapons and exploring the expansions. I finished (no real finishing, but I was completely played out and done with all areas around level 50). A lot of lottttt of hours burned into this game. It broke me into FPS’ and allowed me to learn a love of sniper weapons. Now I’ve moved on to other FPS’ and I’m rocking my summer socks off with them. Thanks Borderlands, you’ll always be my first.
Recently I reviewed Borderlands on Steam. Here’s what I said and why I think YOU might like this game too!:
I played the crap out of this game & its expansions. Loved multi, multi MAKES this game. Played as the phasewalking lilith and by end game was so powerful (in phasewalk skill tree I was able to heal myself and hurt others via AOE) that I was nearly unstoppable. Definitely a fun FPS for a girl who hadn’t really PLAYED one before. It was what gave me my sniper chops to move on to other FPS games. Also, the Dr. Zed zombie area was my favorite. It reminded me of an episode of Scooby Doo (they even have Scooby vans around bridge area) with zombies and bats. In short, Loved It.
Borderlands (Game of the Year edition which has all the fun expansions) is currently priced at $29.99
