    I'm surprised he didn't mention Angel's death, that impacted Jack heavily as well

    New-U stations use money to revive people. Money then is used to make stronger robots which kill the person again. The cycle continues.

    of course we're the villains, when fighting Nomads, their dialogue always consists of "Leave us alone!"

    Everything would've been fine if Lilith didn't nuke the eye of Helios and falcon punch jack in the face.

    There is actually a mission in the Pre Sequel called Handsome AI where you ask Jack how his Childhood was and he says his Grandmother drowned his cat because he didn't make his bed.

    I don't think that's a theory because it fits in pretty perfect

    Came here because it was recommended and figured I'd catch up on the Borderlands story.
    Saw the symptoms for BPD, felt it resonate WAY too much, set up a therapy appointment. Finally getting the help I need and ending the disruptive and self-destructive tendencies I've had for years.
    Thanks Game Theory?

    Moxxi is really the true villain of this series. Lilith being her right hand woman.
