I play Borderlands 2 quite a bit still. 3rd favorite game of all time.
1. Gears of war
2. Breath of the Wild
3. Borderlands 2
I'd say Borderlands 2 is my favorite of the series. About the only complaint I had with it was that I found myself burnt out by the time I tackled the last couple DLC, which made how damn tough so many of the enemies in the Tiny Tina AD&D game one were a real bitch. Yeah, man, it's reeeeaaaaalllll cool how you make it so some orcs can auto-level up so that killing them turns into 10 minutes of hit-n-run where I'm super-happy I'm playing with Gaige so I can focus on the "run" part while calling up her robot-buddy to handle the "hitting".
FunFact! On a cheap pack of mainly low-budget horror-type movies, there's a dark comedy called How to Be a Serial Killer, which stars the guy who did the voice-acting for Handsome Jack. There were times when it legit seemed like it was Jack narrating parts of it, which really made it even funnier for me.
For the topic, for this generation of systems, I got a PS4 instead of the XBone, although with the exception of a handful of exclusives, they're not all that different, at least for games. One thing that's really amazing about systems nowadays, which is something you might want to look into or consider, is how much content you can get for cheap via streaming and such. With the PS4, I joined PS Now, so for $59.99 per year, I get access to 700-800 games to either stream or download from mainly the PS3 and 4 library. And I know XBox has their own streaming service. It's to the point where you could buy a system and 1-2 games you really want and then live off that $59 subscription for forever or so.
