I've started playing Borderlands 2 and it is not at all what I was expecting. It was not portrayed as heavily RPG as it is. The aspects of the game are more reminiscient of a classic RPG, or even an MMORPG, than an FPS. The mission breakdown is basic fetch or building quests, the inventory management is extensive, and the customization is rich. I don't necessarily mind this, but the game just did not come off like that in the previews and ads. I think the richer-than-expected RPG elements actually lend itself more to an immersive experience that I can put long hours into.
Was anyone else surprised by the similarities of Borderlands 2 to an MMORPG style game?
