is it REQUIRED to play 13 before 13-2? i just picked up 13-2 the other night on clearance, and wanted to get into it, but i havent finished 13, i always get pulled away whenever i want to start plugging away at it.

would i miss anything story wise if i jumped right into the second installment?

You'll miss references to events that happened in the first one but XIII-2 doesn't really rely on its predecessor that much.

The story won't make much sense if you haven't played and finished XIII. XIII-2 does have XIII's story summaries in the form of text that you can access from the game's main screen.

If you found yourself not wanting to finish 13. I'd say watch the pieces you missed on youtube, and go play 13-2.

What I would like to know is do you need to BEAT 13-2 to play 13-3, I've plat'ed 13 and recently picked up 13-2 really cheap but goddamn is the gameplay boring, I'm one of those guys that try to capture every monster I come across and honestly its boring as hell. I would spend 3 or 4 hours in one area and it takes 2 minutes of gameplay and 2 minutes of cutscene to progress to the next story area and its 3 or 4 hours all over again.

Versus is hardly even a thing at this point.

LR is a direct sequel to XIII-2. The trailers showed that Noel at least will appear in the game. I don't think it will rely too much on the previous two games' stories though.

You'll miss a few references for sure, and some things like Cocoon and Fal'Cie will be unknown to you. But I completed XIII-2 well before I completed XIII (I only got to chapter 11 before) and I understood XIII-2 just fine.
