Best of E3 2014 Awards: Winners and Honorable Mentions
Best of E3 Winner
Chandler: For a game that isn’t quite a sequel, but is before the sequel, and isn’t coming to new-gen consoles, but is staying in last-gen, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel aims to impress. Feeling exactly like Borderlands but crafting its own identity using the moon as a backdrop and an origin point for new features and abilities means that you are getting the perfect kind of evolution from a game that was already near perfect. The future can be told from the past and gamers will be logging tons of hours on The Pre-Sequel for the addicting shoot, loot, and low gravity gameplay. Oh, and you’ll be able to play as Claptrap? That decision alone warrants some kind of award.
D’yani: It’s pretty impressive to make three successful games in one series and have them all be the same old fun, but new at the same time. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel brings surprising new gameplay elements like jumping on the moon to refresh your Borderlands experience, and a new storyline that is full of hilarious Borderlands humor. I don’t even care that it’s last-gen, I’m just excited that my hunger for addictive Borderlands gameplay is satisfied once again and I don’t have to leave that world for another long while. Expect tweets from me about hilarious lines from Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in the future.
