Then you should STOP NOW, and play SoC first!
Trust me, you'll thank me later. It's far, far better to start with the first game, for a whole slew of reasons (the over-arching storyline is not really one of them, but SoC is just a far, far better story than the other two, and a far better introduction to the Zone as a whole, along with a few other reasons I will leave for you to discover
As an aside, always jelly of people getting to play these games for the first time. I've played them all so many times now, the magic is almost lost. But it's still my favorite series of all time (HL being a close second).
Can't wait for Lost Alpha though.
