Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition holds up as a fun loot shooter, but the improvements made in the remaster are minimal.

Not a game that particularly needed a remaster but that in itself speaks to the quality of the original and the potential of the new sequel.

Even ten years after its original release, Borderlands is still a great coop experience, which looks great thanks to its "cel-shading" graphics (4k resolution in PS4 PRO and Xbox One X). <not mny content additions for this version though.
