This a training simulator for homeless
The game is mostly a training simulator for the homeless. You spend half of your time rummaging through lockers and boxes looking for stuff. I feel like the homeless rummaging around in the recycling bins on garbage day.

I also don't understand why brutality is supposed to be funny. "Torture dolls"? Really?

And "Butt Stallion"?.......

The vehicles are terrible compared to Rage vehicles. And the guns are just work.

Why is rummaging through a pile of guns to find a "special" one fun? Looking at 10 shotguns to decide which is best is work, not fun.

If they keep talking about torture and homosexual inuendo, I don't know how long I am going to last. I hear and read that in the news everyday. I play games to get away from that insanity.

The music and scenery is kind of nice. Although it is really really really hard not to feel like I am playing a single player WOW with guns instead of magic.

I don't get the popularity unless it is because it was made for the George Bush/Iraq generation that was raised hearing about torture and homosexuality. I guess all that talk sunk into them and made them think that is what normal life is huh?

Why do people from the US do have often such an opinion about games with a rather intense display of gore? You should just stop comparing a game to reality..it is JUST a game and one should be mature enough to see this, otherwise people should just start playing Angry Birds, but even Angry Birds is bound to destruction and brutality (even if it is dressed in a different more "children-friendly" way.)

However, the one thing with opening lockers and chests is truly annoying at some point. Nontheless, the game is more like Diablo in 3D in a more futuristic environment!

PS: No, we are obviously not biased by Bush etc.

Have fun playing the game!

PS2: a Pony made of diamonds!...hell yeah..I laughed my a$s off when I heard that!

Let's take a look at the ESRB label, yes?

Blood and Gore
Intense Violence
Language
Sexual Themes
Use of Alcohol

Blood and Gore and Intense Violence should have hinted to you that Borderlands 2 was going to be violent. Sexual Themes completely covers all the talk about homosexuality. Also, if the talk about homosexuality in the beginning is annoying to you, you might as well just quit now. Spoilers: Hammerlock is gay, and there's quite a few gay characters, especially in the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve.

If you wanted to escape 'teh homo' and 'teh violence', you really should have chosen a different game. As for the rest of your complaints, I guess that sucks? One of the main selling points for BL2 is that it's full of loot, and another is the ridiculously over-the-top dialogue and story.

Some people will complain no matter what. They can't realize that not everything in this world will appeal to them or be made for them. Yet others might like what they do not. Tolerance is to allow others to like something you don't. Live and let live.

Everyone has different tastes. Either you enjoy it for what it is or you don't.

Now speaking of work, that was a very exhaustingly drawn out discussion you posted.

Honestly, if trash piles, animal ♥♥♥♥, dumpsters, coolers, and everything else held money, ammo, and guns that shoot exploding lasers, wouldn't you rummage through trash?

It's a video game, a product of the warped imaginations at Gearbox, get a grip folks.

This game insults my straight orientation not allowing me to kill teh homos, despite their name being legion. I can only kill straight enemies. Ima file a compliant or a petition to make homos in the game disposable.

Hmm... I have to admit: I've never actually looked. How do we know they *don't, and that homeless people aren't hoarding tons of loot somewhere?

The homeless have nerfed their drop rates lately.

I find it amusing that a planet with only like a dozen females on it would have homosexuality. Guys just have an issue with sharing is all.
