I would play the first one.

Youtube has a Evil Within explained in 5 mins video. Do that.

Semi-related question: Does the first start angling towards the second?

What I mean is I played the demo of 1, and it just sorta immediately went "hello here is big murder man in creepy hospital, watch out for the gore!" and that is less appealing to me then everything I've seen of 2, which looks to lean towards a more weird/surreal horror then the viscera I saw in the first. But if the first game eventually starts going places that the initial chapters didn't I'd be down for giving the whole thing a shot.
By Grabthar's Hammer, what a savings.

I'm about 4 hours into the second one, and the story so far isn't really dependent on the first. I do recommend playing through the first one though because it was great experience, and by playing through the first one, first you will be able to see all the improvements they made.
