I see Gothic 3 is 75% off today, is the story linked to the other 2?

Or could I jump into the 3rd one and not need to worry?

Has a couple of recurring characters, and the same geography but you should be fine. I'd still suggest playing the previous ones at one point in the future however.

Gothic 3 had a terrible reception (it deserved it) but the community patch fixed pretty much everything, so it's ok now.

I agree, I like Gothic 3 almost as much as Gothic 2 with community patches.
Its a bigger game and may bite off more than it can chew but the world still blows other similar games out of the water.

No part of this statement is true.

Do not buy Gothic 3.

Uh, get Risen 1/2 if you haven't. Gothic 3 is really bad. You'd almost think it was a series reboot made by a different team that didn't know what made Gothic 1/2 good.
... even on Earth Mode.

Risen 2 also got completely slated when it came out, so don't set the dev's on pedestals.

It's just $4.99 for all 3 Gothic games.

I don't, but Risen 2 wasn't nearly as botched as Gothic 3 was. If they screw up Risen 3, I might be done with them.
