It is heavily story driven and if a lot of talking is a bad thing (In ME1, after the first mission, there is about an hour (or more if you are a completist) of down time), then this could be something that could push you away, but if you can get into a deep story, like character development and diversity, and enjoy the sci-fi theme, this is a great series to get into. The gameplay isn't terrible either.
