As the title says, can get both for slightly less than $10. Have played 2 and 3 so have been wanting to play 1.

You'll find the gameplay and game mechanics in 1 to be very different to later instalments, and the Paragon/Renegade system. Certainly the differences between 1 and 2 were greater than between 2 and 3, IMO.
It's no use debating a moron; they drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

Just because you have the attention span of a fruit fly doesn't mean the rest of us are so encumbered.

ME1 has passable combat, some annoying mechanics, and tends to channel the shit out of Star Control 2 (in a good way). ME2 and 3 suffered from having to hack their way through an explanation for all the mystery and cool shit ME1 setup. So, Mass Effect is basically "The Matrix" trilogy of video games.

EDIT: Also, with ME1: be prepared for the most EXCRUCIATINGLY terrible inventory management system you will likely ever deal with. Also, rubbing space goo on shit to pick locks.
