Which to I start with?

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel 1 11.11%
 
I dunno? 0 0.00%

I think most of know by now that Borderlands Game of the Year was just announced.

So since I have yet to play a Borderlands game, do I wait for this release to start or do I go ahead and start with the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel from the Handsome Collection?

Hmmmm...

All Borderlands games are great, but I think the first one is better than The Pre Sequel.



I personally didn't like The Pre-Sequel at all when I played it in the Handsome Collection, something about it just felt not as fun compared to the first. So I would wait for the first since it's a much better game imo, but it's up to you.



Borderlands 1 and Pre-Sequel are both a bit rough, neither was as good as Borderlands 2. Between the two though, I think Borderlands 1 is a better game, so play GOTY if you haven't played 1 yet. Pre-Sequel has a tease for Borderlands 3 though that you might want to see soon since Borderlands 3 is coming this year most likely, though you can see that tease by simply watching the ending online instead of playing the game.



Borderlands 1 GOTY

I played solo and did all DLCs - clocked 65 hours and it is worth it

That's not an announcement...

Plenty of games have been rated before but never released.
Anyways, if it releases I'd say play Borderlands 1 first, then pre-sequel and then 2. Might as well do them in chronological order after all.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Play Borderlands 2, it's much better than 1.

From a lack of time perspective, I just might be skipping the Pre-Sequel from what I'm hearing.  But even though 2 is better than 1, would it not make sense to play 1 before 2?



Definitely Borderlands 2 and skip the others for now. Easily the best in the series and you won't miss out on much as story is certainly not the strong point of any Borderlands game.

So it implies from a couple of responses here that they are fairly independent of one another?  I will not get a "fuller expereince" with 2 if I were to play 1 first?
