Personally, I'd take Shift as I hated the direction the Need for Speed titles went in around the time Underground hit the market.

wow not really much of a choice ...
At a push it would need to be Shift purely because Underground wasnt a computer game, it was a kick in the nutsack
 
:Edit, it would be Underground. Thought you had UnderCover ... man big mistake!

I was just curious as to whether Giant Bomb likes the direction EA have taken with the Need for Speed franchaise, opposed to around the time Underground emerged.

Shift, but only because I've already played Underground.

I don't care much for racing games, but if I had to choose I guess it would be Shift.

Havent played Shift so kinda hard to say. 
But the first Underground was still alright. I would even go as far as say that I enjoyed it. 
I´d probably pick Underground. But I´m also a sucker for street racing culture in general and as I said I havent tried Shift.

I would play Underground 1. One of the best Need For Speed games in my opinion.

I played the Shift demo on PC, and while I'd choose that over Underground, I don't think I'd really play much of either game.
 
You want me to tell you where I want EA to take the series?  Back to the very beginning!  When you were driving through long scenic areas, without the attitude, realism, open world, or any of the other shit they only added in later games.
