I tried Depression Quest. It was boring.

On the enthusiastic recommendation of a friend, I've begun playing Borderlands.  So far, the game feels like an MMO, particularly with the world and quest design.  That's not a good thing.
I could never get into Borderlands. I think the gameplay suffers because of the crappy limitations involved because of all the skill trees you have to level. None of the guns feel like they have "oomph" either.  All in all, really bland.

<Blanko> Here's my detailed critique
<Blanko> Every enemy is a tedious bullet sponge which is dumb and boring
<Blanko> And the game progression is literally designed like an MMO

The wisdom of Blanko.

For a game that attempts to be a standalone RPG/FPS experience, it's pretty bad. The world is barren, you always follow the same linear progression despite what class you pick, every NPC is a quest dispenser with no personality, and any personality the game has is forced meme-fuel that  stinks of bad writing.

If you like MMO quest systems, walking around collecting $2 off the ground, a useless loot system, and shitty gunplay... then Borderlands is great for you. If you're above all that shit then just walk away because this series is pure garbage.

Borderlands 2 is great.

I never got into Borderlands either. It was kinda fun in a mindless way and I finished the first one. Someone gifted the second one to me and I haven't gotten very far before I lost all interest.

Yeah, I was talking about both games. They're both terrible.

Yep, Borderland sucks. I bought the first one years ago among all the hype. It goes nuts with the amount of items it throws at you, and the gameplay got extremely boring once I hit level 10 on my brute and just went overpowered mode on every enemy.

Giving Bravely Default another chance, again. I'm actually enjoying it a lot more this time around.

While I'm certainly not playing it, I have to say that Destiny's mediocre-to-poor reception has pleased me.  Everything I've heard about the game, from its Halo-meets-Borderlands premise and its let's-give-him-horse-tranquilizers use of Peter Dinklage has made it sound absolutely awful, and I'm glad to see that people are finally calling Bungie out on their shit.

What's wrong with Halo meets Borderlands? What shit does Bungie need to be called out on? Their last game was Halo: Reach, which most consider to be an excellent game.

I haven't played the game, but anything meets Borderlands is not something I would pay money for.

I hope you're using Tor, because I'm pretty sure it's illegal to be this edgy.

Are you stalking me? Last week I said that same thing, word for word, on Facebook after being accused of excessive edge.
