I'd take ME1's stellar writing and clunky yet rewarding gameplay any day over ME2/3's boring gameplay and serviceable writing.
I personally think ME3 is the best in the series, with ME2 a close second. The gameplay and mechanics in 3 were just so much better. I had more fun playing it.
I think ME1 is significantly worse than the other two in almost every regard.
