4. Borderlands 3
Gearbox’s third installment is currently mired in multiple controversies: the firm has accused a former employee of using a company card to take family holidays and “get six pack abs”; the employee has responded by accusing Gearbox’s CEO of taking secret illegal bonuses and leaving out a USB stick filled with pornography (yes, really). PC gamers are also outraged the game will appear on Epic’s store instead of Steam. But none of this matters: the really important question is: how many guns? The answer: a billion guns, 57 times the number of weapons in the last iteration, including guns that shoot explosive cheeseburgers! Early impressions are of a tightened up, souped-up Borderlands 2, which can only be a good thing.
