The first three games of the series were all kinds of awesome, and Blacklist is a return to the older style of SC games with some newer elements mixed in, but the only one of the older games that probably wouldn't feel dated is Chaos Theory
, which is still my favorite of the series. They came out with a remastered HD version for PS3 a couple of years ago for the original trilogy. It should be a pretty cheap pickup these days. If you have the time, play all three IMO.
The only one you'd be missing at that point is Double Agent, which is challenging but has a lot of annoying missions.
