If Minecraft works fine, will Borderlands 2 work fine?

#1Megabest39Posted 9/8/2013 4:48:59 PM
So my mom doesn't want me to download Border Lands 2 for PC because she is scared her whole PC will crash and become unusable somehow. But I miss playing it since I sold my ps3. Im not a big PC gamer/tech guy so I need some understanding.

Minecraft works ok, lags a little bit from time to time and it is on fancy graphics but on short view. Can anyone give me an estimate on if Borderlands 2 will work and if it will melt my PC like my mom thinks lol

It certainly won't melt simply because of Borderlands 2. What are your specs?

Nothing bad will happen to your computer, but if you can't even get smooth performance from Minecraft, Borderlands 2 won't run well at all.

Don't know if this is a serious topic but without some specs that question is near impossible to answer. Also your computer won't explode if you try. The game will either not boot or be a slide show if it doesn't work. Games aren't viruses.

Minecraft is far more demanding on PC's that borderlands 2.

Borderlands 2 uses more modern techniques for graphics. Modern computers use these modern techniques.

Minecraft, however, uses extremely dated techniques. I mean like effin DATED. As technology progresses, older technology is left behind and sometimes even abandoned entirely, so modern technology almost always has a really hard time playing games that use older techniques.

When games use these older technologies, developers are basically gambling their funding on the slight chance that people will love how they presented these older technologies.

TL;DR: you can handle minecraft like a champ, BL2 will be like cake on butter
