I unashamedly admit that Borderlands 2 is one of my favourite games of all time, it’s in the top ten at the very least. It was a perfect game for a perfect time for me, near endlessly replayable with an absolute ton of content even before you take the substantial DLC into account. So why has my previous excitement for Borderlands 3 cooled so much since the reveal a few months back?
If you haven’t seen the new Spider-Man movie and want to avoid spoilers, then I’d recommend not going any further, as I’m going to be talking about the ending as a part of this article. But please come back afterwards.
Every so often, a video game will come around that will turn your expectations upside down and leave you spinning. So much so that you end up coming away from the experience confused, dissatisfied or disappointed. Through no fault of the game itself not it’s developers, rather you let your experience be shaded by what you bring with you. Outer Wilds almost became that game for me.
