Hello there. So, I asked about the Mass Effect series a while back, and was going to play Mass Effect 1, and I own it for the PC... but I never actually played it. Now though, I have a PS3, (got it 4 weeks ago,) and while I was at Gamestop today, I saw Mass Effect 2, and decided to pick it up. I also have it for the PC as well, but, this will bring me to my point.
You see, I could just play both ME1 and ME2 on the PC, but there's 2 problems there. One is that my PC can run them, but not all that well, whereas my PS3 could probably run ME2 much better in comparison. The other problem is that Mass Effect 3 is coming out in a bit over a month, and if I just played ME1&2 on the PC, my choices wouldn't carry over to ME3 on my PS3. And that brings me to another problem. ME2-PS3 is supposed to have a comic that summarizes the events of ME1, but I also just have ME1 anyway. The problem is, aside from not running as well as ME2 likely well on my PS3, there doesn't seem to be as much of a point to playing ME1 in that case, because my choices won't carry over to either ME2-PS3, or ME3.
Now, some of you might be quick to point out that ME3 will be getting a PC release as well. However, when it comes to playing the games on my PS3, or on my PC, the PS3 is the much better choice. (Not to mention, I'm not even sure if ME3 will run on my PC at all.) So, I'm going to have to make a decision at some point, but I figured I'd see if I could get some advice first. Should I just read the interactive-comic that comes with ME2-PS3? Or should I just play ME1-PC anyway to get the full story, even though it doesn't run that well and none of my choices will carry over either way?
