I wish they'd "remake" the first 2 games with all of ME3's sensibilities. It really did combine the best parts of ME1's RPG mechanics and ME2's streamlined design. It's also difficult to play the first two games after you've played 3. I know people say, "It's an RPG! You play it for the story!" but ME1 was an RPG with a trash shooting mechanic, and while ME2 did a better job, it was still trying to find it's ground. Meanwhile, ME3 is one of the best TPSes this generation. Even if you remove all the RPG-ness of Mass Effect, the game is absolutely brilliant to play (which is why the multiplayer works so damn well even though no one thought it would). I tried to sit down a couple months back to replay the entire series one after another, but I quit about ~10 hours into ME1 because it's just not a fun game to play anymore. ME2 fares slightly better since there are more similarities between it and 3, but it still feels anemic compared to the amount of depth 3's combat offers.
