The original Borderlands was a surprise smash hit, selling millions of copies more than its developer, Gearbox, ever thought it would. The first game's randomized weapon generation, unique cell-shaded graphics, steep difficulty, and excellent co-op was a potent combination -- more than enough to overcome complaints about its thin story.
