I’m actually curious on how people seethe order of the story.You can count Tales if you want. I say the order is 1, 2, Pre Sequel. While I do know that TPS’s game play takes place between 1 and 2, the story is told after 2.
BL, Pre-Sequel (gameplay/story), BL 2, Tales (up to Ep. 4, I think), Pre-Sequel (narration), Tales (Ep. 5)
What he said. TPS actually takes place between BL & BL 2 (the action) and afterwards (when Athena is telling the story).
The framing device interrogation takes place almost immediately after tales Ep.3. The first three parts of this takes part some time after bl2. Tales Ep 4 either takes place during the interrogation or some time after, but ep 5 for sure takes place some time after the all of the interrogation events of TPS, as Athena iss no longer in custody. Tales 5 is the most recent state of Borderlands.
I haven’t finished Tales yet so I’m leaving that one out of my list.
For me it goes: BL1, BL2, BL TPS.
I only list TPS last because it’s a retelling and narrative driven story from a character that’s post BL2 main story even though it takes place before then.
BL1, TPS game play, BL2, Tales of the Borderlands, TPS narration, Tales of the Borderlands.
BL1 -> BL: TP-S! -> BL2 -> TftBL -> BL3?
