I do. I don't think it's nostalgia-related (the game isn't very old), but I think overall the first BL was quite better.

i prefer the old loot system, but i feel like literally every other aspect of the 1st game was improved upon.

No.
Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

I didn't play the first one, but this one is fantastic. How did they do the loot system in the first one?

it was just plain better. more variety, and more useable weapons. manufacturer gimmicks were way more subtle.

you seriously need to play the 1st game.

I remember Crawmerax dropping 3 or 4 legendaries per kill. Good times...

I played the first one more because it was "novel." Other than that however, I do believe that Borderlands 2 improves upon just about everything in Borderlands 1, and had I played 2 first, it would be my favorite.

Yellow stuff are not hard to obtain in BL1 but weapon scaling/level is just that crap; you managed to get a great lvl 32 weapon from pt1 and wonder why that weapon is still better than those lvl48 that you have just found while you are on pt2.

True, the second has better graphics, music, UI (debateable), character development, etc, but that is expected from a sequel.

The first Borderlands was a hell of a lot more fun. It FELT better to play. There were far fewer sequences of endless hordes of enemies, and more strategy was involved in playing. More fun, better story, etc; I liked the first one better.
