Borderlands is essentially an ARPG with guns, so there's definitely some overlap with a title like Torchlight 2. Both games feature random item drops and skill trees (though Borderlands skills tend to be passive rather than active). Yes, there will definitely be some lost revenue from competition - though from which title I can't say. For many gamers it may be a question of which game is purchased at full price and which one is a holiday sale purchase.
