Demon's Souls was an incredibly unique RPG with lots of cool new features going for it. Borderlands is one of the most derivative games I have ever played. I can't say that there are any new features in the title - everything in this game has been seen before in a plethora of different titles. What Gearbox Software did was take concepts from just about every great shooter or Diablo clone over the past ten years and tossed them into Borderlands."
