I very much enjoyed taking a chance on Borderlands when it was released. It was the first game in a long time I just bought, without having played a demo or waited for reviews. And it was a great game that I've spent a lot of time playing. I even bought all the DLC at release and have more or less enjoyed that too. Having said all of that, I'm not going anywhere near the decade-old Duke Nukem forever unless I play a demo first. And if 2K doesn't want to give me a demo, that's to their detriment, not mine.
