So my girlfriend and I have played parts 2 and 3, and absolutely loved them. Since we only have a PS3, we never had a chance to play the first one. Now I might be able to borrow a 360 from my Dad for awhile to buy and play the original Mass Effect. Question: Is it worth the trouble? After playing the other two games for some 50+ hours each, how will the first one hold up? Would you say it's worth experiencing the story, even though we already know how everything will turn out? I quite enjoyed the ending btw, not sure what all the bickering was about. But I actually consider the entire second half of ME3 as the ending of the game - all the loose ends get tied up, a lot of decisions from previous games become relevant and show their consequences...a great (and quite emotional) conclusion in my book!
