All of the Witcher games are dark by nature because they take place during a period of war in a world that is already pretty grim. It's one of my favorite aspects of the series. If you want a light-hearted fairy tale, look elsewhere.

You certainly don't need to play the first 2 games to enjoy TW3, but I think it's more fun if you do and import your saves. Fwiw, TW2 is fairly short by RPG standards and doesn't require a huge time investment.
Getting a little back on topic Kingdom Come: Deliverance also "takes place during a period of war and is pretty grim" but I actually care about a number of characters in that game and want to know how it ends. Yes there are plenty of unpleasent people in that game too.

I also felt that way about the Witcher 1 (which has one of the memorable plot twist endings (along with Kotor and Planescape:Torment)) and the Witcher 3.

In the Witcher 2 really the only one I cared about was Triss. I really felt apathetic about the rest of the people killing each other, so the story just didn't reach me emotionally. I know, I'm in the minority. I don't need fairy tales, but I don't like stories where I have a hard time sympathising with anyone. You should play Serpents in the Staglands. That's another game that was too grimdark for me.
