So The Witcher: Extended Edition has been sitting quite calmly in my Steam backlog since... um... since the 2009 holiday Steam sale? Or maybe it was 2010. Anyway, I haven't touched it yet.
Now of course The Witcher 2 is out, and early reviews indicate it adds a bag of chips to the first one's all-thatness.
When I don't have time (OK, don't make time) to play games, I sublimate by micro-managing the hypothetical game-playing I am not doing. Hence this poll. Is it advisable that one play the first game before playing the second? Or does the second game so completely surpass the first as to make it moot?
I strongly suspect this is a Mass Effect-like situation, in which the answer is "duh, play the first!" But nonetheless I'm curious. Thank you for your consideraaaaaation.
