Should I play Borderlands 1 before playing Borderlands 2?

If you weren't interested in the first one, why the hell are you considering this one?


Because this one is...better? Bigger? 400% more awesome and 1000 hotter? With 96.5 more WUB-WUB?

Borderlands 1 is only $20 to download through the Xbox Live marketplace, but keep in mind you'll have to play for around 5-7 days to complete the game minus the DLC if you do every mission (which I'd recommend to level up properly and get the best weapons). You can knock out the DLC in about 2 or 3 days, and the Secret Armory story ups the level cap to 61. I really think you'll enjoy it more if you start out with the first one, but I guess it's not necessary.

WUB does count for something.

Good thing there's no WUB in the actual game, according to Randy Pitchford. I can't wait to drink all the delicious dubstep kids' tears.

Back when I was in high school wub was alternate slang for... second base, maybe? I don't remember. I suspect Borderlands 2 will provide equal parts satisfaction to high-school grade wub.

Borderlands 1 had no plot basically, there isn't much to miss.

I just hate the bottom of my posts looking like a signature, so here's a signature so it doesn't look like one.

Borderlands is basically a dungeon crawler, no real plot, just kill lots of things, level up, get more stuff, kill more things even betterer. If you like games like Diablo, Torchlight and Champions of Norath than this should be right up your alley...
