storywise, is it required, or suggested to play the first game before hand?

I would suggest playing DA:O because DA:O is a great game, but it's not like Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 where you will be 100% lost if you don't.

I would say it isn't necessary because it is an entirely different story, but it takes place in the same world. If you skip DA: Origins you will only really be missing out on some back story.

So far, there are only a few places where the plots overlap. Some actions you took in DA:O are mentioned and some do have actual effects, but they seem like pretty distinct games.

So basically, no.

it is suggested that you complete the first game before attempting to start the second one, yes. It will just make your achievement progress easier!

What they said... and then some.
Why not play it just get a little bit of the back story from the past 10 years. Or just because it was voted GOTY for several different catagories..?
