Is it worth it to play through both B/W and B2/W2?

or just one or the other?

I'm debating on getting them soon but not sure if I should get both or just one (since I hear Black 2/ White 2 is better).

Black/White 1 had the best story in Pokemon games IMO. It made it seem like the gyms and elite four were side stuff until after you defeat the regions evil team

It is, BW has a great story and BW2 has a lot of awesome post game content, It would be a waste not to experience either.
Don't worry about repetitiveness because BW2 adds a ton of new cities, spices up some of the already existing ones, and completely changes up the order in which you go trough them, in addition to giving you a crapload of great pokemon early on to use on your team (you can get a Lucario really early on for example).

Maybe I'll give them both a shot then.

B2/W2 is easily the least rehash a "third game" has been in the entire series. If there was ever a gen where I'd recommend both the originals, and the "third game" it'd be this one.

The sequels are better, but I think BW are good too. It should help you with the story to play BW first, but I think everything is pretty well explained in BW2 concerning what happened in the first games.

Also, you get what TV Tropes would call an "old save bonus" in B2W2 if you've played BW.

I thought B/W were lame. It may be the most story Pokemon games every had, but I didn't like it at all.

I think B2/W2 were amazing though. They added a few more towns, and some post game content which should keep you very busy, whereas I have no reason to ever return to B/W.
