I feel you. I'm exactly the same way. Graphics quality is not on the top of my list when I'm playing a game. When in the midst of game play I don't even notice the graphics. The top two things for me in a game is story line and game play, so I think we're coming from the same mold. Having said that, you HAVE to play the Mass Effect franchise starting with the first Mass Effect. Another to consider is Skyrim. This game is HUGE. There are so many side quests that it can take you months to get through it. Plus there are a boat load of mods for it now that can make game play very interesting.
