And the award for worst user interface of the year goes to....
 
Borderlands. Congrats. Your user interface is officially worse than Oblivion. An achievement that was thought to be unattainable.

As a secondary prizes, Borderlands also wins the "All Toggles are backwards" award for having all keyboard/mouse toggle hotkeys backwards as to what should toggle and what should not. Borderlands also wins the "most inefficient method for online multiplayer ever".



Contrary to popular belief, this picture is actually a Borderlands PC player trying to get use to the user interface and controls after he already spent 45 minutes trying to start a multiplayer game with one of his friends.

So.... just so we're clear.


You like to buy games and then tear them a new one? :lol: You sure love to complain.

No wai, Dirt 2 wins for "you MUST do this race until you can escape the caravan to change graphics settings". Followed by 10 alt-tabs to enter the Live key 'cause clipboard support would be ludicrous!

So in other words, you hate the interface because you're not used to it...

Once you realize that everything is stored in the menu after you hit tab, you should be fine. Then holding tab brings up the map.

I thought it was pretty easy to figure out and use...

My vote would go for BFBC2 personally. For such a great game, the UI is shockingly bad and buggy.

Probably... I found the UI to be great. It does what it needs to do easy and without problems.

It took you 45mins to get an MP game going? I told you all you had to do was open the ports for gamespy... once thats set theres nothing else you need to do other then add your friends to your list and invite them.
