Yes borderlands 3 recieving praise like its halflife 3

To be fair... I can easily understand THQ getting voted as best games studio/company.

They listen to what fans want, buy old (near dead) IP's and then give fans games in those series.
So if your a fan of a "dead" series, and you see suddenly THQ is bring it back to life, your like "hell yeah THQ"

Borderlands 2 had like a ~90% metacritic score right? Its a strong series.
Sales wise? I dont know... I suspect these games are like 5m+ sellers right? 
But theres a "core" of fans that really love it for what it is.

Borderlands 2 alone has sold 22 million copies while the series' total is at 48 million (link).

THQ Nordic, eh? I guess I'm missing out. I buy a fair amount of games, but going through their entire catalog I see I've never played anything they've ever published. I DID buy the Darksiders 1 and 2 remasters though. Just haven't tried them yet.

I like how Planet Zoo got something, but massively disappointed that "best" PC game was a multiplat, from a shitty company. Planet Zoo would have better served as an actual PC games, designed for PC, rather than a console franchise, that gets a PC port.

That explains it then.... Borderlands is BIG.
The hype for the series feels that way too.

Could be cause...ya know...halflife 3 wasn't there so another game had to get the award...



For me, the shocker is that THQ Nordic have brought the name THQ back from the dead. A few years back, I don't think anyone would have thought that would be possible but they have been pretty decent quality as of lately.

I'm also shocked to see so much praise for Dreams. I could see it topping Playstations list for hype but overall? I guess I need to look more into it.
