Why “The Borderlands” Needs to Exist

Excerpt:

"Hello. My name is Jacob, and I’m addicted to Borderlands 2. *Hi Jacob*

It all began with the Steam Sale. Innocent enough: Many, many good games, for ludicrously good prices. And then, I saw it. Borderlands 2, sitting there shining like the gleaming brass casing of a bullet. Me and four friends pitched in, got the four pack, and I’ve barely come up for air since. Which is exactly why there will not be a Borderlands 3. Instead, we will, at some point in the future, get a Borderlands MMO.

What is it that makes an MMO and MMO? Is it the Elves and Dwarves? The raids and dungeons? The derisive comments about other peoples mother you make in trade chat? Nope. It’s the M. The Multiplayer. MMO’s are a genre of game that attempt to thrive on that bizarre notion that we want to do things together. Be it finding treasure, killing bad guys, or even just sitting around and talking while dancing in the middle of town, MMO’s drive people to work and play together." (Borderlands 2, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

This is a great article, and I totally agree: Gearbox would be sitting on a goldmine if they made a Borderlands MMO.

agree, but many people dislike put insane amount of time into gaming... Borderlands 1 and 2 is game where you can turn on any time, and even play it with your friends.... anytime.... in MMO it is competition forever with no relaxing times with friends.... only hardcore action action and action.. I would better like borderlands 3 how it is.. maybe more players online... but not MMO.. that is for different audience!

A year ago I'd vote for a Borderlands MMO, or even to continue with Borderlands 2 DLC; after recent events of playing it, I'd say let the series die out.
