First of all - my opinion is BL3 is really average. Not good, not bad, just… neutral.
Because, most of us already know weaknesses and plotholes in storyline. That’s one.
Second - optimization. No need to mention that it’s not acceptable to release a game with so many bugs? And forget about patching it for almost two weeks.
Seriously, is it really that hard to spend a couple million less on marketing,advertising and put them into beta-testing? Yeah, what am I talking about, it’s all about sales, screw gamers.
Third point should be about modern social identification, protection of minorities and overall SJW pollution in media.
But, honestly, I dont really care. But most peoples are, but their opinions mostly ignored
or criticized, even if they are constructive. But okay, thats the rules of the modern world. My complaints are about that such topics were generally addressed in the game, and more than that - how exactly they are set in the plot. It seems like the scriptwriters took a set of topics that absolutely must be in the story no matter what because, you know, they are modern, right and edgy, and in the end their concentration is just striking.
One more time. I’m not against this things. I against their presence in the game, and if writers choose to add such topics - write them good at least.
Come on, just look at Killavolt quest. Over a 30 minutes i shoud listen to a very poorly written story of the oppression of women (represented by Moxxi) and how bad her former boyfriend was. All the dialogs was so overdramatic that it became cringy. And this is only one example, and many more left. I saw a much better presentation of such hot topics in other works, and in other works - they really fit in. But not here.
Despite the fact that we got some cool quality of life things in gameplay, improved gunplay and extended customization, there is still more should be done. I saw - and support this opinion - what UI is horrible, inventory and bank size kinda small, and will be nice to have a option your own loadouts. You know, mayhem mode, different builds…
But wait! There is one more thing we lost in BL3.
I’m talking about missing gun types.
So, gearbox, where is my laz0rs? Not this wannabe-lazer-alienated-stuff we have (we have this in bl2, so this is not count), but real different type of weapons, like in pre-sequel?
And where is my bandit (COV now) shotguns? Tediore and Maliwan launchers? And who else think what Atlas sniper rifles should exist too? Atlas weapons somewhat cool, but we have only 3 types of guns wrom this vendor.
Thats all for now. That is why i think borderlands 3 is overall weak and overhyped (ty
marketers) game? I want to say - decent - but for me it’s not.
