I'm as surprised as anyone Borderlands 2 is this cheap already, but pretty sure I'll wait for the GOTY. I mean, the Season Pass is another $30, which in my mind says "This is really still a $60 game, sold in two parts." I'm not anti-dlc, but it seems to me unless you buy the Season Pass, you're not buying the full game. Perhaps that's not entirely fair to the devs, I'll admit, but the perception is there.
No, that's a valid point, although maybe more on the publisher than the devs. I feel smug having picked up BL2 before release for <$35, but I also bought the season pass right after launch for another ~$22. The content is there, but if you're not gonna play it immediately, no sense in not waiting for a significantly discounted GOTY. I count BL2 as one of my 3 "full-price" purchased games in the last 6 years or so.
