Fallout 3, as it's only $10, and well worth it in my eyes.

If you liked that, New Vegas will be fun for you as well.

Mass Effect! Sorry guys don't crucify me for that one, but it's an amazing game and just an completely epic and awesome game. Then you can move on to the Fallout 3 then NV game play. Which will last you for weeks.

See if you do Fallout first you may become so addicted you'll spend so much time you'll never get to ME. Since ME while amazing is the shorter of the games you can get that out of the way with no worries about forgetting about Fallout.

Fallout 3 GOTY Edition first for sure.

A guarenteed 100 hours of awesome gaming for a mere 20 bucks. That deal CANNOT be beat.

FO3 was amazing. Mass Effect was pretty good.

I will stand by the Mass Effect games, since they are hands down my favorite games. The action may not be what you're hoping for, but it's worth it for the story alone. Plus the games are a happy medium of "not too short" and "not too long."

Then I would say pick up FO3. Like someone said earlier, it'll help you appreciate NV more since you'll get used to the style and will be able to appreciate the changes they made. I personally think that both games have excellent stories and I love the open-world feel of each one. The only down side is that I could easily put 100 hours into each game respectively, and I wouldn't want you to miss out on Mass Effect by playing these first.

Both game series are awesome as RPGs and I hope I'll never have to choose between one or the other. They're just not really comparable.
