I'm also one of those who liked BL2 better than one. Cooler locales, and more of them. I thought the larger difference between weapon manufacturers was cool, and made weapons more distinct. Sure BL1 had cool weapons, but so did BL2.And I liked almost every character in BL2. Tiny Tina is the only one I kinda hated, but outside of the main game she is pretty funny. Especially in her own DLC.Don't really see all the hate when it comes to Handsome Jack either. He is kinda like a mix between Archer and Barry from Archer. In fact, I started watching Archer because someone compared Handsome Jack with Archer.Mr. Torgue is great, and his DLC is worth it just for his lines alone.So yeah, BL2 is a vast improvement over BL1, a better game in every way in my opinion.
