After continually seeing annoying people complain about the game and go on bitter rants and salty sprees I thought I’d start this post. Thank you Gearbox for making Borderlands 3 the way it is. In an age of Destiny 1 getting rebooted and sold with a 60$ tag on it calling itself Destiny 2. Where games like No Man Sky is getting ongoing game of the year award. Where Bethesda and Bioware and Rare are all trying to create shallow live service games that are shallow empty husks of content wrapped around a plan to pull money from the consumer’s wallet. In an age where Overwatch lootboxes are defended for “only being cosmetics” allowing slimy greedy business tactics used in casinos into our pure innocent video games. Where Blizzard is now shipping a remaster with cosmetic microtransactions, Diablo with microtransactions and now Overwatch 2 while giving the Starcraft FPS the axe.
From shadows of mordor to call of duty we have slimy greedy business men reaching for our wallets and for some reason are lucrative enough to even warrant their very existence! I say thank you cause in an age where games can easily be shipped broken, with empty husks for content and still have people defend them and create entire communities around casino mechanics in a nefarious psychological loop tied to get people addicted, you said “Lets just make an Innocent, pure fun FPS just like we used to and try to make sure the customer feels like they get the better end of the deal”. Thank you for not making twice as many cosmetics and selling half as lootboxes with random emotes and crap that does nothing other than affect how you look. Thank you for not having timed lockout events in which you say “Come back later, we don’t have enough content for you to warrant playing so just come back later to run this 1 activity”. Thank you for allowing pure fun in an action packed FPS RPG Looter that actually excels in all 3 categories. Thank you for having a rich expansive story that is actually cohesive and makes sense in the context of the series.
Thank you for Troy and Tyreen, they don’t get the credit they deserve, I love how they are fake phony narcissistic online personalities that mimic a lot of millenials I see on youtube and the internet. Seriously Gearbox thank you, from the bottom of my heart for not being an ■■■■■■■ company who wants to exploit the stupid ass trends people are going for. Thank you for being unique and offering a completely unique experience from any other damn game on the market, even those who claim to be Looter shooter RPG’s. Even those who have people who work on their games who say they loved WoW and that’s why they put these things in the game, where on the other hand Gearbox being a company who shows TRUE homage to not just WoW but diablo and many other franchises that came before. Thank you for releasing free content as big and expansive as the Maliwan Takedown where other games say “Give us 30 bucks for that, that’s a raid”. Thank you for being cool.
Seriously I’d rather play borderlands 3 over anything right now. It even has me itching to play through 1 and 2 for more depth to the story. It has me trying different builds and different variants of guns than I have in any other looter shooter, even for the borderlands series. I have maxed all 4 hunters to 50 and maxed all guardian perks and I still have enjoyment with this game. I seriously love this game for everything it stands for. I just wanted to gush for a moment cause with how many ■■■■■■■■ there are bitching about the game they all seem to forget how good it really is, and how much worse it can be. Seriously, it is hard to find constructive criticisms in which people are just trying to point to the few flaws in the game without damning it as a whole and talking about how bad it is.
