I wanted to break up some of the negativity with an honest question pertaining to new players of the franchise. I’ll have a couple criticisms, but I’m not trying to start a hate thread.
TL;DR: Would you recommend BL3 to a new player? Or start earlier in franchise?
So, I find this game awesome. It’s obviously geared towards long time BL players such as myself. My fiance, on the other hand, has never played a Borderlands game ever. Or console FPS games for that matter. She has expanded her gaming horizons with Skyrim and Zelda: BotW and has done good with those games. But I feel like BL3 doesn’t ease new players into the game like BL2 did. Like, the tutorials for BL3 were a mess for her. I had to kinda explain everything that wasn’t said. (which is a lot of stuff really) And I know the battles are going to ramp up big time after the initial “tutorial level”.
Like, I LOVE the ramped up mobs having been a BL player since the launch of the first game. I’m not so sure how a new player would approach this game. While I am asking an opinion, I guess I would like to know what tips you would give to a first time Vault Hunter.
