Re: Third-Person Action/Adventure/Shooters??
Why are you against going back to old games like ME1? I love playing older games like that because they are dirt cheap to buy used and they are still very good normally. The combat mechanics of ME1 are kinda shitty but still fun and the story is awesome. I always play through a series from beginning to end.
The only game I would suggest skipping is the original Assassin's Creed. You aren't really missing much that isn't included in the intro to AC2 and it's a pretty repetitive game.
