Very rarely do franchises make an impact like Borderlands has. Gearbox Software has done a phenomenal job at setting it apart from other AAA titles in a similar space.

Never before have we seen the graphics that are featured so prominently in Borderlands. They have a cartoonish aesthetic, and yet, your eyes are attracted to them. They leave a lasting impression far after you’re done playing.

The looting and shooting design also is rarely matched in modern shooters and RPGs. You’re always looking for the next powerful gun and great swag after taking down an opponent. This recipe has been so successful that we’re now approaching Borderlands 3.

The game is one of the most anticipated titles of the year, so much so that Borderlands 2 sales are still going strong. It seems like gamers are looking to get re-introduced to the series before the new game comes out. Who can blame them? It’s a great strategy, especially for those who want to hit the ground running.

Just how good is Borderlands 2 selling, though? According to reports, over 2 million copies have been sold since May. That’s pretty impressive for a game that’s been out for quite a while now. Borderlands fever seems to be sweeping the nation, and rightfully so.

Borderlands 2 received rave reviews when it first came out all the way back in 2012. The vault hunters have never been better. There was a character for every style of combat. The villain, Handsome Jack, is also one of the most iconic evil forces in video game history.

The things he does in the story give you all the more reason to want to take him out for good. The further you progress in the campaign, the closer you get to stopping his evil reign. Aside from him, there are a lot of other great characters in Borderlands 2.

One of those was Tiny Tina. She may have been small, but her personality couldn’t have been bigger. Her crazy, witty lines are the type of writing you expect in a game like Borderlands. If you’re looking to jump on the bandwagon and catch all of this loot-and-shoot fun, feel free to purchase the sequel before the new installment comes out.

If you do, you’ll be able to check out the Commander Lilith DLC pack. It’s designed to connect Borderlands 2 with Borderlands 3. It seems like the perfect way to experience the lore all over again before a new chapter begins.
