Wow, I'm a little surprised so many people liked BL2, it put me to sleep. I couldn't even finish one character, and I had like 3 max level, loaded out guys in BL1.

Something about the gameplay was just lacking for me. Console-centric menus and inventory didn't help much either.

word up. I slogged thru BL2. I thought BL1 was far superior. There was no progression in BL2. my character only felt weaker as the game went on.

You had shitty weapons, courtesy of Gearbox's focus on grinding / making the game feel like an MMO. For some reason they thought that everyone would just LOVE having to grind areas for 20 hours to get a decent weapon drop.

Sadly, there are enough retards on their forums that cheered this decision on, so they will likely keep it in place for future editions. Personally, I thought it was a decision that nearly killed the game for me, until I found a way to just fudge the drop rates, and the whole thing became about 10 times more enjoyable.

Again, devs, if you build really cool guns for your games that make players laugh out loud when using them, MAKE SURE THEY GET TO FUCKING USE THEM. This doesn't seem that fucking difficult to figure out.
