As you may (or may not) know, today is the 7th Anniversary of the release of Borderlands! We’ve been trying to think of a simple way to commemorate the occasion and thought a forum post asking you guys to share your favorite Borderlands memories would be fun. I’ll go first:
I have lots of awesome memories of Borderlands. I hadn’t played a game like it at that point and I credit Borderlands as the game that made me love “looter-shooters”. Learning the ins-and-outs of the gear, its rarity, and how that affected gameplay was pretty amazing and tons of fun. Like many of you here, this revelation set off a love of farming gear for me, which is also among my favorite BL past times. I’m sitting here trying to remember my first BL legendary and I can’t remember what it was, but I DO know my favorite – the Hellfire SMG. Playing as Lilith with a Hellfire is about the best thing ever in my opinion.
Other than the gear, the environments are pretty amazing too. I have lots of memories tied to specific areas in Borderlands – Jakobs Cove, Sledge’s Safehouse, and of course, Fyrestone just to name a few.
What about you guys? What are some of your favorite Borderlands memories? Share them below!
