Are these games all 1 big story and I should play 1 and 2 before this?

I've heard that they're all one story.  I haven't played them yet, but will soon.

 

If you plan on buying them, now's the time as they're both on sale on steam atm.

Not mandatory, but it'll help you understand a lot, especially even the title of the game. If you can't afford the game, go to the library and read a couple of the books. They're pretty good, and relevant enough to make you know what's up.

Witcher 1 and 2 are both great games, so if you are RPG fan you should definitely play them. You have plenty of time before Witcher 3. Witcher 1 graphics might be a bit outdated at this point, and combat is kinda clunky , but it's worth it for the sake of story. Witcher 2 is my favorite game of all time, one of the best RPgs for sure.

it would be a good idea,so that you get immersed right into the game the first time you play it...but there is no "real" requirement of the 2 previous installments

 

when you finished the 2nd witcher,you'll be so eager to play the 3rd

I have started playing them but the first games combat mechanics are a little bit wonky if you aren't used to it. Fair warning.

Why do people even post questions like this one?
You shouldn't play witcher at all if you don't wanna learn it's lore, get to know it's characters, because this game is not about swinging your sword at enemies. The main thing here is story telling, and not only you should play both prequels, you should also read books.
Best RPG experience I've ever had.

I own 2 and wasn't all that impressed, so never finished, and I don't feel lost at all in 3, but I am only 4 hours in.

Been a fan since Witcher 1. I think that playing 1 and 2 will give people a better understanding of the story so you can just jump right into wild hunt, but I think that the game makers have really made an effort to not need to play the first ones. They know that there are a lot of newcomers and the game just won't sell if customers can't get into the game.

@raydawg2000: I guess I'll be repeating... But, no it is not necessary. But if you want full knowledge of the Witcher lore, then you may go and play 1 and 2 and read the books of which there series is based on.

Have you guys seen The Witcher 4 Release Release Date Trailer News and Rumors??? CD Projeckt Red really knows what they're doing. Although I'm really wishing that this time, the ending wouldn't be a cliffhanger like before, but I'm really excited to see the story improvement, and how I can customize my own witcher and make it the protagonist of the game!
