I never played it. I liked the intro a lot.

The story about the Vault Hunters.

The song and how it ties in to the characters.

Or maybe I am getting my Borderlands confused and that's why I can't find the video with the song and the intro sequence... One of the characters was 'siren' and then the is like 'get off my bus'. 'no really get off my bus'.

And about how being raised in conditions of deprivation is a catalyst. Because what ya gonna do? If you cannot make ends meet (your legitimate needs, here, not talking about greed, talking about need) then you really have no option but...

And it describes a game.

And I don't want to play the game. But I see the allure of the opening sequence. It seems exciting... And so on... Tempting...

But I don't buy-in. I'm not buying into it. Life isn't like that. Doesn't have to be like that. Won't be like that. There's another way... Another way to be. Another set of things to be worked for...


But I guess I like it because it helps me understand the game that most people seem to be playing (the individualistic treasure seeking high risk high reward).

And I guess I feel a bit of empathy with respect to people being forced to it.

I know I'm different. I wouldn't break under torture. I don't. Because I can go away inside myself. But most people can't. Maybe most people were never forced to endure the certain kind of deprivation I did. Where vault-hunting wasn't on the table.
