I quite liked borderlands, less liked some of its dlc which could have been better, ned being good in places but an absolute bore in others, moxxi being your horde mode deal vs waves, knoxx being the best by far only let down by lack of fast travel points (you have to drive everywhere), claptrap was a good run through but was just lacking in some aspects.
IMO borderlands is best played with others, if its played solo it isn't much fun at all, its just a grind. Its art style i'd say is kinda nice, it was certainly different when it was released but since then many other games have taken its style and applied different effects, i.e rage takes the borderlands style and adds in higher detailed textures as opposed to borderlands more simple ones. It also wont appeal to anyone who doesn't love their loot/quest for better gear.
I'll be holding back on rage, sure carmack is behind it but he hasnt done anything for a while, it looks like they did take borderlands and pimp it up, not a bad thing but not entirely fresh either also i suspect his development might be a bit too overly greedy on PC's with optimisation being left behind. Also Bethesda, make great games but also are full of great big holes where the bugs chewed through.
We shall see, deus ex is on my list for sure (that is if i don't win it in this steam contest
), its got some very nice things about it, if they play out deeper into the full game and aren't quickly forgotten it'll be very nice if you are looking for a game with a deep story.
