Perhaps I missed the hype machine that you obviously felt screwed by, but what I was going on was this:
Borderlands combines the best elements of Gearbox Software's first-person action titles with player customization and vehicular combat.
Evaluated against THAT … it is a solid but not great game.

But as you say, just like some people don't like Baldur's Gate or the Gothic games or Planscape Torment because they don't deliver whatever thing that person is looking for … this game isn't for you.

That doesn't make it suck, though. And that is the only reason I've stuck with this line of discussion - because from an objective standpoint, measured against the statement from the developers above, they have executed very well.
