Did this thread really get approved by a mod or are we finally allowed to start making thread here? If the former. Wow. Just wow.
On topic: the only benefit to having both Black 1 and Black 2 or White 1 and White 2 is access to both Reshiram and Zekrom. If you don't care about that, then look at some of the things Master Emerald listed to decide which one to get.
Just like most have been saying, I think it depends on the person. I'm getting White2 only because I like White Kyurem, not because I played the first White... Of course, I've play both Black and White, so I guess for me it doesn't really matter either way, lol.
Now on the other hand, my other 3 brothers have only played one version, the older has play Black, and the younger 2 have played White. But all 3 of them are getting Black2 because of different reasons. The older of the 3 is getting it because he likes Black Kyurem better, the middle one likes the version exclusives better and the 3rd one is getting it because he has always liked Zekrom better then Reshiram.
So yeah, I'm sticking with, it depends on what the person wants to do.
... Considering you can have both version in the same game it doesnt really matter if you like white kyurem or black kyurem more, the version you get is for the exclusives and the continuity. I had black and white but I played black alot more than I did white so Im getting Black 2
Im getting whte 2 ( my sequel) even though some of the ones i waant for my party are in black, i can just trade it anytime. I also prefer regice over registeel

Rarely any difference, only version exclusives and black city/white forest, honestly you can just trade for version exclusives anyways so imo it makes no difference just as all the previous generations were

-Aesthetic Differences (Opelucid, Route 4, Black City/White Forest (they're the same thing this time around), Mistralton, Rebirth Mountain, the eyecatch and HP bar colors)
-Layout Differences (the Plasma Frigate and Victory Road are set up differently between games)
-Keys (Black 2 gets Challenge Mode while White 2 gets Assist Mode)
-Fes Missions and Join Avenue stuff
I'm getting Black 2. It's kind of a weird preference of mine to have mismatched versions. Like mentioned already, I can just trade version exclusives, and I have both Reshiram and Zekrom. Just a preference, really.

I chose white, now if i chose B2 it wouldn't make much sense and i would be able to catch zekrom twice and reshiram no times

I have Black, and going to get B2 because the Pokemon you can get on it are more for me than on W2!
(also I like the look of Black Kyreum!)
I got White 1 and will get White 2, that makes the most sense. I'm not really bothered about exclusives.
To the people worried that they won't be able to get the other dragon if they get the opposite sequel: did you not do the Zekrom/Reshiram event a few months back?
^Maybe they didn't own JPN version or wi-fi.
Anyway it seems more right if u own one colored version n continue to buy the second colored version. Like Black and Black 2. Or vice versa.
But I'm buying both B/W 2.
It depends on what do you want to get actually. Complete legendary or exclusives.

Stupid, white 2 gets Easy mode! ! I want a challenge rather than being able to make the game eisier for myself

When Black and White came out, I got Black and my sister got White. Now I've already prepaid for White2 and my sister is going to get Black2. We're doing it simply because of the dragon we prefer. Just get whichever you want.

I got both games, so I am getting both Black 2 and White 2. It only makes sense to do that.
