    I thought Borderlands 2 was supposed to have good writing? And be done by Mikey Neumann?

    I think some people really like it, I don't have a super strong opinion either way

    And I've no idea about that second part

    The writing in Borderlands 2 is... fine. And then you get to Tiny Tina, who I explicitly did not like. But that did give Ashley Burch a role in bigger and better things, I think, so hey, good for her.

    He also did a HAWP about his experience writing Borderlands 2 where he flip-flops between going

    "HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WRITE THIS I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO"

    to

    "Ok, I think I've got this, I can write this."

    straight back to

    OH GOD I'M A TERRIBLE WRITER WHY

    So I can appreciate his self-depreciation.

    mikey was on the writing team, yeah

    and I would say, yes, it had decent writing and I don't know where any of this stuff is coming from

    My main issues were

    1) Tiny Tina
    2) Handsome Jack was INSUFFERABLE and even though it was intentional it was still the fucking worst

    And also the memes in the badass rank stuff, etc

    All of that isn't Anthony Burch's fault but he was the head writer so I think a lot of the blame defaults to him

    Yeah Anthony Burch is one of multiple writers on BL2, I don't know why he gets singled out as The Meme Guy so often

    He was head writer so it all kinda defaults to him.
