Either way, it's going to be the next game I play.
If you'd played ME3 at release, you might've been disappointed. I wasn't (loved it) but a lot of people were. Playing it now will most likely be fine, with the dlc cleaning most of the questionable stuff up.

The gameplay changes pretty radically (in a good way) from ME1 to ME2, but it's worth playing the 1st one because it's the best in the series in a storytelling sense. 2 and 3 feature much more enjoyable gameplay.
Right now I'm still playing SW:TOR, working on my bounty hunter (should be my 6th level 50 in a week or so). I've recently reloaded LOTRO (after watching The Hobbit) but haven't started playing, and don't expect to play much. But I have enough store points accrued to purchase both expansions and have a ton left over, so I figure why not.
Also replaying ME3 right now. Have Arkham City waiting for when I feel like a change of pace.
