I'd like to know this myself for someone else. I can't be bothered to go back now that I've already missed it.
I miss the days when I had a favorite video game character with runners up. Now no one comes to mind

Only if you care about the story.
BW1 might have the "best" story of all the games.

By far the biggest point White has over W2 is the novelty factor. In White, you only encounter pokemon new to the region prior to beating the game. It's the only game with an entirely brand new set of mons (no returning ones) aside from the first game. It's worth that even if it doesn't sound appealing.
Roses are red, violets are blue
There are no objects in PUs.

That does sound cool, but since I've played gen 6 and 7, they White's pokemon won't be new to me, lol.

So, (to everyone), sounds like the main appeal of White 1 is its story. So the story is significantly different from 2? Does that mean 2 is worth playing soon after finishing 1?

They do some neat things with the story in W2 if you transfer over data from a clear save of W1, so if you have 2 DSes/a 3DS and a DS there's that to consider as well.
