Not going to play any of the of GOW games
(oh except this one)
is there a story summary someone can give me for the first 2 games?
Just get really, really angry
All your children are poor unfortunate victims of systems beyond their control. A plague upon your ignorance and the gray despair of your ugly life.
If you really dont want to play the first 2 installments (you should, seeing as the "Collection" goes for fairly cheap now-a-days) you can search for "God of War Cutscenes" on youtube and watch all of the cinematic events from the from them.
It will at least get you up to speed on the story (given you played the games in numbered order)

aye I had that HD collection but I think it was sold
All you need to know about the first game is that Kratos was in love with a man named Ares. The love was unrequited which caused a lot of conflicts and awkward situations (as I'm sure you can imagine). Kratos slowly started to lose his mental faculties and descended into madness. The psychosis resulted in him going on murderous killing sprees in games 2 and 3. The games are basically like Shakespeare's Winter's Tale, except with many more pissed off people and much more vicious killing.
^Don't support this silly line of thinking by catering to his needs. Make him work for it by playing the first two games.
Seriously why would you not play any game but this? How do you know you'll even like it. Play the first two games...you can get both for less that $20, you bum.
FtB: Ya blew it.
Gears summary? Sure. Humans move to an alien world with humanoids underground. Circumstances lead to them fighting for the right to survive and dominate the world. Humans are losing most of the time only to pull out the big win. The end.
Este: Why are you talking about GoW?
Ken: >loved Ares
Still don't know why we're discussing GoW1 here.
Hotel: >don't cater
I found Gears Of War way too mechanical myself.
