GNT: I’m going to start this post by saying I hate first person shooter games. Typically, they are full of people who aren’t very kind, and the gameplay mechanics are just a little too mundane for my tastes. As such, I didn’t pick up Borderlands for quite some time. There was a lot of hype around the game, however, and with a mention of a leveling/skill system, I figured I’d give it a shot. When I was finished with the game, I was very pleased I did. With the second game on the horizon, I felt a review of the first was necessary. Borderlands boasts ‘bazillions of guns,’ an RPG style leveling system, and a multitude of quests that make it one of the most fun and original FPS games I have ever played.
