I'm going with Uglies. It's more original. Putting a bunch of teenagers in a arena to kill each other for sport? That's something that's been done since Lord of the Flies came out. Plastic surgery for everyone...haven't seen that before.
And, on a scale of toughness, we all know Tally could break Katniss over her knee like a twig.

Only when she supped herself up, normal Tally would be dead in 10 seconds.

Undeniablly. But what's the fun in thinking of that fight? I'd prefer one where Katniss is running for her life and Tally's searching for her as a Special...oh, fanboy shivers.
And then of course Hester Shaw would come from no where and own them both.

I prefer the writing style of Uglies, but I like THG for its symbolism. I haven't seen much of that discussed for Uglies yet--maybe I'll go post a topic for that right now!
They're hard to compare because the themes are pretty different--Uglies is about how people are controlled by their desire to be perfect, whereas THG highlights how corrupted reality television and the media as entertainment are.

Maybe reading The Hunger Games will give you some deeper insight as to why you love Uglies so much ;) Also, the killing is a metaphor--a concept that I have had to explain to a lot of people who find the plot "immoral."
