My vote is for borderlands. This assumes you have friends and are willing to play it consistently.

It depends on what you want. Left for Dead (uncut) is more visceral and (fast) action packed, where as Borderlands is a much slower (though not slow) paced game and is more like grabbing a bunch of friends and going out hunting (for loot).

for borderlands its essential to have friends, for l4d 2 not so much.

both will eat up your free time like gabe burgers so consider yourself warned.

Borderlands I would say, the game is fun to play with 2, 3 and 4 friends so you don't constantly have to wait for people to be online, the only problem with it is you get addicted to leveling up and finding higher level items but after half way into the second play through you reach the level cap and at that moment it loses all attraction.

As for L4D2 it suffers the same problems as 1 as soon as you and your 3 friends start kicking ass the other team rage quits so unless you have 8 friends who are willing to stay its really hard to get a full game finished.

Borderlands is far more worth your money. It's a brand new experience and really unique. L4D2 is a L4D mod.

Borderlands for the short sweetness, or L4D2 for longevity.

I voted l4d2, to get your moneys worth. Or you can get borderlands keyboard drivers and buy l4d2. win win?

if you can't decide.. Get both. Problem solved.

I'd say Borderland for a better game. But I haven't tried it yet.

Borderlands is a lotta fun if you're playing with friends (especially in a LAN IMO).

For pure money's worth though, i'd say L4D2 unless you didn't like the first one.

Better answer, why not both?

Should have made it a public poll, just because it would be interesting to see what various people prefer. I'd say overall L4D2 is a better game. Borderlands may have more content, but L4D2 has more replay value. I personally think L4D2 is more challenging and fun to play. However, BL is pretty good too, despite having some flaws.

L4D2 is more fun than Borderlands, but Borderlands is great with friends too.

I vote for both.
