I have played the 1st about 60 hours or so between files. Loved the game but only ever made it to act 2.

Do I need to finish the 1st before starting on the second one?

If your backlog is so bad you haven't finished the first, then wait on the second. By the time you finish the first and are ready for the second, it will be discounted.
Don't pay full price just to backlog something.

I had the same question as I didn't know if people played for the story or just the combat and exploration. However it seems you will want to beat the first one.. first. As it, itself is a great game and not one to be missed.

You've made it farther than I did in the first and I've had no issues with story in the second. I can't really see myself going back to the first either because of how great this game is now.

From what I understand, no you do not need to beat the first. I'm pretty sure the second game takes place like 1200 years after the first one, and you can probably go read a plot summary of what little plot the first one had

You definitely do not need to play the first. That said you won't really want to go back to it after playing the sequel so I do recommend beating it first. It wasn't a bad game but I feel it seemed to lose its focus after the first act which made it hard to push on.

So if someone has the money to buy the new one now, is it smart to jump ahead and forget about the first or no?

That depends on your spare time. For me? Absolutely worth just jumping ahead to the sequel. I don't have the time to play every game that interests me anymore so I need to pick and choose. The sequel is hands down better so I'd prioritize that one. New games come out all the time so its not like you can ever completely eradicate a backlog unless you have an incredible amount of free time.
