I'm very curious how Borderlands 2 landed on the best online mp list. Not be a use it doesn't deserve it because it's the very best coop game out there, but this must be for the dlc. Borderlands 2 released in 2012. I'm also happy to see Diablo 3 get some recognition for its online mp because it implemented it very well.

The very best coop game? Actually yes, I can agree with that. It probably is.
