10 Best First-Person Shooter Games To Play in 2015: Page 9 of 10
2. Borderlands 2
With this many monsters to kill, the cold will never bother you
A little Siren magic
Ultra-violent and boasting about a bazillion guns, Borderlands 2 embraces the ridiculous and runs away with it.
Borderlands 2 is set on Pandora, which is ruled by the sadistic despot, Handsome Jack. As one of the six Vault Hunters – the Siren, Commando, Assassin, Gunzerker, Mechromancer, and Psycho – you must put a stop to his tyrannical rule by any means necessary.
As an RPG, each class has a host of special skills that can be upgraded as you level up. Thankfully, killing foes is made easy by the sheer amount of guns and other loot the game throws at you. Imagine Diablo as a first-person shooter that’s set in space, with thousands of guns, and a distinctively space western feel, and you’ve got the insanely addictive Borderlands 2.
The gunplay is exemplary, but so is the writing. This is one of the funniest games you’ll ever play, mostly thanks to one of the most unforgettable bad guys ever made – the narcissistic Handsome Jack.
Expansions offer new locations, more bad guys to murder, and even more guns to collect.
