Don’t you just wish that you could go back in time, and to a parallel universe, and play a 1989 version of Borderlands?
Sadly, that’s (probably) impossible, but Gearbox has done the next best thing and ‘demade’ the game into a classic retro 16-bit top-down shooter. You can play it here for free, although you might need to refresh a few times as their server seems to be taking a hammering. The graphics suck, the sound effects are terrible and the gameplay is simple, but it’s awesome.
