Dead Island or L4D2?

I'm looking to pick up a zombie themed game to play. (Mostly solo) Both are on sale at the moment. Which is the better buy? (I wont be buying DLC if its available)

I preferred Dead Island but both were fun.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.

1000 x Left 4 Dead 2.

Have you ever had a turkeyburger? Is that a fried turkey leg wrapped inside a burger? Because if so, then yes. Delicious.

If you're going mostly solo I would recommend L4D1 over number 2. There's quite a few "gauntlet" style events that survivor AI cannot handle and is a lot more frustrating than it should be. But either choice would be better than Dead Island solo.

Dead Island Game of the Year Edition is said to be 8 dollars on Black Friday at BestBuy. So i would go with Left4Dead 2

30 dollars new on Disc at GameStop (More used)
and 25 dollars used on Disc BestBuy

So from a price stand point ( and a more fun standpoint) Left4Dead2 is the better choice here.

i like Dead Island but it's really no contest- L4D2 by far

I'd get L4D2.

If mostly solo DI.

I enjoyed DI - more than L4D2 as well.

But solo, L4D is no fun.

L4D controls really floaty
both decent, but as said L4D you really need to play with others
