CliffyB calls Borderlands “the Diablo of the FPS generation”


I’m playing Borderlands at the moment, and it’s definitely a lot of fun. I’ve also played a whole load of Diablo, obviously a classic. Apparently, so has Mr. Cliff Bleszinski, Design Director at Epic Games. Best known as CliffyB (although he’d now rather not be – sorry!) and best known for being lead designer of the Gears of War games, he has compared the games in a simple tweet:

Borderlands, I adore you. You’re Diablo for a generation raised on first person shooters. I want a Claptrap statue.”

The obvious similarity is obviously the loot, with untold numbers of items being possible. As for his other comment, I want a Claptrap statue too…now. I guess these ideas are part of why he’s so successful. A Borderlands 2 collector’s edition bonus, possibly?
