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.
well I am not like your dad. I worked as a chef at TGIF-Mattson

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'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

Neither, get the Walking Dead
