Borderlands was an addictive little First Person Shooter/RPG combo in which I personally put in about 100 or more hours of my time. I completed it about three times, went through the DLC and raved about it to friends. It does stand out for me as one of the best games of this generation, it had a unique graphical style, a huge world to explore and was fun right down to its core. It wasn't without faults though, the quests within it were hardly brilliant and there wasn't much in the way of story. Add to which the wasteland itself was a bit too... barren?
Enter Borderlands 2, a game which aims to improve on its predecessor in almost every way. Introducing a brand new cast of characters/classes for you to play with, even more guns then the whatever-bajillion combinations that featured in the first one and a whole new dynamic quest system that will shape the game in an entirely unique way it's easy to see why this could be a huge title for 2012.
