I've played through 2 and 3 and loved them both. Never played 1, though. I'm just talking about gameplay, here, as I'm already familiar with the story. Where does the first game rank among the three in your opinion?
Online Pass? DLC? Locked single player content? But duh devs r just trying to makke moneys so day can eat!

I'm actually replaying the first ME and I'm loving every minute of it.

ME2, ME, ME3 in my opinion.

Yes, honestly it's my favorite of the series, mainly because of the potential it presented for future installments. That, and I happen to be one of those crazy people that liked the 1 square mile planetary exploration with the Mako. I would have liked to see something like that but with the Hammerhead for the 3rd game.

Though I find it kinda hard to go through on replays, it's definitely worth playing through once.

It is definitely worth playing. It's different in many ways from the other two, but it is a great game.

Regardless, it's still my least favorite of the 3, but it is an amazing game.

Yes but pick it up on PC and get the High Res Texture pack. Game looks really good in glorious 1080P, PC Version of 2 with the 4K Texture mod looks even better.

Mass Effect 1 was awesome in its time but I can't say it has necessarily aged well.
