So, Borderlands 2 clearly wanted to make the old heroes more personable and simply give them more personality. I dig it. They did some very, very well, like Lilith, Marcus, Tiny Tina, Ellie, etc, yet did my own personal hero from Borderlands 1 a great disservice. Yeah, Roland's awkward romance-y thing with Lilith was weird, but Mordecai is just... bleh.
Why oh why did they turn Mordecai into a sniperbro? What prompted the writers to say "hey, this quiet and collected sniping/killing machine should become a booze-besotted drunkard who acts like a fratbro. Holy cow does this frustrate me. Why?? I mean, you could have taken his personality so many ways! Am I the only one who's really annoyed by it??
I don't know... maybe it's because I'm only lv21 and I haven't finished the playthrough, but my-oh-my does the current setup of Mordecai annoy me. >.>
