Simple question. Should the new borderlands game be hype, or should a very large portion of it be kept a secret?
I recently saw a video explaining why it should not be hype, and I have to agree. They said that games that are hyped can turn out to be major disappoints. An example is with no mans sky, as it was hyped to oblivion with all of these amazing features but many were disappointed with how they were not as they were described to be. Thus can also be said with the (liked it but was disappointed with some of the parts that weren’t up to snuff).
Keeping the game in secret will not set expectations high, so many wont know what they are going into, which can be more invigorating than knowing exactly what’s supposed to happen. I find that many of the best games I play are the ones that I know little about. An example is borderlands 2, as I found the game as a high rated game in game informer, so I rented it and subsequently loved it to hell, and still love it.
So what are your thoughts? Should we know a lot about the mechanics of the game, or just the characters involved and a basic storyline?
