So first off I dont want this to be a “Outerworlds is better than B3.” Its subjective and they are completely different games. What I want to talk about is how each franchise handled its story.
Without major spoilers in my opinion Borderlands 3 missed a golden opportunity to freshen up the story by making it more about the politics of the manufacturers instead of “Open Big Vault” for the forth time in a row. Outerworlds is all about its large corperations and I’m 100% on board. Mainly that’s what I wanted from Borderlands 3 story.
Borderlands 3 did it alittle bit in the middle of the story, and then they completely abandoned it for the Calypso Open a Vault storyline…IMO was pretty mediocre. At this point I dont even want to be a vault Hunter anymore becuase when you actually open stuff inside vaults you get nothing and its adds nothing to overall story.
Me personally there needs to be a Borderlands 4 and Vaults and the Eridians need to take a back seat. I think we need to learn more about these manufacturers and flush them out alot more.
