I am seriously considering purchasing Borderlands. I know I am far behind as the game was released quite a while ago. I am a little worried that I may not like this sort of game, as I don't have much experience in this genre.
My experience is almost entirely MMO's or Diablo type games. I have never really played shooters much, but I have heard great things about this game.
The games I love, are games where you work long and hard to build up your character. The issues I have had in the past with shooters have to do with this. I have never been very attracted to just playing through a game where I need to kill stuff in the same way as all the other millions of players did. I want to feel like my game experience can be a little bit unique, based mostly on the character I build and the items I loot and wear.
I hope that is not confusing, and I really don't know much about Borderlands. I would appreciate your feedback on my preferences above and if they may clash with Borderlands.
For instance, I purchased Modern Warfare 2 but I just can't get very into it. I know that my online level raises as I get better, but all the rankings are related to me as the user, not to the character I am building...does that make sense? I like to play different characters with different play styles often. This obviously leads me to MMOs, but I am burnt out right now on them.
Sorry for the long post. I hope you guys might have some input for me.
