Should I play GOW3 directly instead of going through GOW1 & 2?

Like many gamers, I often purchase games and then do not have time to play through them. I now own all 3 Gears of War games and have only played through part of the first one. Is this a series that would be more enjoyable to start from the beginning or should I just play the latest and greatest in the series first?

I do not plan on playing much online so the newness of the game isn't a concern for me in that regard. I am more curious about the story line and getting the maximum enjoyment out of the series.

If you're interested in the story, I'd highly suggest actually playing through the campaigns. The developers at Epic Games did a effective job at building a compelling setting, backstory, and narrative. Reading the plot summaries won't do it justice.

It might be worth adding this answer to the original question because it provides an alternate viewpoint to the answer there. –  jaminja Nov 9 '11 at 0:05
