I've had Metro 2033 for a couple of years or something, never played more than a few minutes of it.

I know I should play that before messing with this, but on a scale of 1-10 just how important is it that I do that?

I've played 2033 all the way thru - and altho I'm only a short way into LL, so far my feeling is it'd be fine to play it without having done 2033 first. There are references to events in the first one but they provide enough info in themselves to get the gist and any deeper knowledge doesn't seem relevant or necessary.

Personally I feel it is very important to get the whole story so you know all that happened leading up to Last Light. Although it isn't necessary in order to enjoy Last Light, you would be missing out on a great game and a huge chunk of story.

I just picked up a DL copy of 2033 on Steam for $15.00....................so it's pretty affordable if you want to get the back story.
