My birthday is Friday, and I'll have enough money to get a $60 game. I really want both of these. Which should I get?
 
And for the sake of being able to actually see the results, I'm going to vote for Borderlands

If you're talking console grab Borderlands. 
If its for PC i'd get Left 4 dead 2 because Borderlands for PC is a console port that needs desperate patching.

I voted L4D2 cause I loved the heck out of the first one but I hear good things about Borderlands. I'd say depends if you like zombies more or diablo style leveling up and finding loot.

Borderlands... I haven't played Left 4 Dead 2, but judging from what I've heard and have played of Borderlands it is a more unique experience.  I guess really it depends what your friends are playing.

I'm going to say Borderlands, I loved it.

A lot of people on my friends list are playing Left 4 Dead 2. Hardly anyone is playing Borderlands because of Modern Warfare 2 (which I already have)

Depends... 
 
Do you want to horde loot?
 
Or do you want a horde of zombies?
 
Either way, you'd better have some friends to play with.

@natetodamax:
Ah, in that case I'd recommend L4D2.  Borderlands is still totally playable single player, that is how I've been playing it, but either game is probably better with friends.  I know from the first L4D that having three friends with you can make the game amazing fun and really create some moments you'll remember.  I used to play L4D with friends from work just about every night and it actually made my life a lot more enjoyable, having something in common with my work friends made work easier and playing L4D at night was a lot of fun.  I imagine Borderlands would have the same effect if you had somebody to play with.

get Modern Warfare 2 HOOAH

#12 Posted by End_Boss (3220 posts) -

Get Borderlands first, because you'll likely get more play time out of it and it's always good to support new IPs. That being said, once you get the cash together, definitely buy L4D2.

Sounds like you have to be selective in what games you buy. Generally that means you want to get the most out of your money and Borderlands has a lot to offer gameplay-wise. It will probably never be as thrilling moment for moment as L4D2 but you will get more out of it in the long run.

Borderlands easily.

#15 Posted by Sabata (825 posts) -

You should spend that $60 on an actual game and not an expansion.

#16 Posted by Bubahula (2197 posts) -

i fuckin love borderlands
#17 Posted by ZombieHunterOG (3530 posts) -

:P what about the L4D2 Guide ???? 

#18 Posted by Rasgueado (718 posts) -

Which one should you get? I don't know... I'm not you. Which one do you want more?  
 
If you are able to come into possession of $60, you should be able to handle this decision on your own.

By the end of next week, Borderlands will have zombies too.  My suggestion is Borderlands because you can play it alone or with friends.  L4D(2) is really a game that can only be enjoyed with friends.

Borderlands for surez.

#28 Posted by Adamantium (885 posts) -

Borderlands... unless you have the mad-on for zombies.

" @ZombieHunter: Who says I haven't tried it? "
I do,  you wouldn't say its an overpriced expansion if you had played it there is more then enough new content to warrant a new game, every campaign i have played so far have been different and really fun so as i said previously you are clearly just being a douche

Both of those games are awesome & looks like Left 4 Dead 2 achievements are as easy to get as Borderlands. I may need to get both of these. Hell with Modern Woe-fare.

I would say Borderlands. You will get a good 50 hours gameplay from this game easy. Plus you can either play it single player or coop. With my experience of l4d was that it was a multiplayer game, never once did i play it on my own. Im only guessing that l4d2 is the same as i havent played it

#40 Posted by natetodamax (19208 posts) -

As I believe I said, I already have Modern Warfare 2.
 
I'll be getting Borderlands I think

#41 Posted by FlamingHobo (4483 posts) -
@natetodamax: You have Left 4 Dead, you don't need Left 4 Dead 2. I'd go with Borderlands.
