The humor has always been very hit and miss. Many of the series fans seem to love it, which is why they keep putting some of the same crap in every game. But if you're not part of that group then most of it might not be very funny to you. Some stuff is pretty good though.

I've literally never seen anyone praise the humor beyond "I get a couple laughs but most of it is a bit dumb". Though the series is kind of self aware so maybe that's the intended impact?

Not so much the forced memes and "fam" lingo that is basically a bunch of 40 year olds trying to sound like what they *think* the cool kids sound like , but a perfect example of the extemely cringy humor are for example the videos where the vault hunters start dancing for no reason while shooting at enemies , or that idiotic Brick playing saxaphone bit. It's so dumb and forced it's not even ironically funny . Its just trying waaaay too hard to seem quirky and fun and hip and cool , but instead comes off as trying too hard and having no idea how humor actually works


I almost cringed myself inside out at the “You want guns with legs? We got you boo” in the original trailer.

I've never really taken much notice of the BL humour. Some bits are funny, the bits I don't find funny I just pass it off as stupid.

I didn't play over 300 hours of Borderlands 2 for the humour.
PLAYING - Fire Emblem Three Houses (NS), Final Fantasy VIII (NS), Borderlands 3 (PS4)

For me it's a nice break from the witty internet jokes. They're fun, but like everything it gets tedious after long enough.

Gimme poop and piss jokes for a change.

Some of the humor from BL2 was amazing to me, some of it wasn't (mostly from the DLC, except Tina's).

But the thoughts about it not being humor so much is kind of correct, too. It isn't like someone telling funny jokes. Except for Jack's joke about the "bad guy" who came at him with a spoon. Of course it was more of a story that just happened to be hilarious.

Still, usually it's just the attitude and behavior of the characters that I found amusing. A great example being Tiny Tina's intro scene in BL2...I think it's hilarious. But it isn't so much a joke as seeing a 13 year old gear dancing and singing around this bound bandit before blowing him up that makes me laugh.

It’s almost like that’s the point of the humor.
Nice!!

I really like the series but I don’t think any of the jokes have even made me smile.
No longer stuck with Shenmue </3. Shenmue <3 is almost here! Currently crossing fingers for Dreamcast 2.
