It was meant to be more of an RPG, the other two are meant to be shooters. Apples and oranges.

No, you are not, quite a few people would say that ME1's gameplay/combat did not age well.

 

No, there is not much you can do about it.

Not by a long shot. It's pretty universally called terrible. Bioware focused more on story in the first one, and more on combat as the series progressed.

Image result for good place for a stick up meme

 

You just need to reinvent yourself into a new personage and remake what you enjoy.

 

Either that, or just drink heavily, your alcohol of choice, before a gaming session. Personally, I find that works the best.

you're not the only one, the shooting mechanic is very archaic compared to ME2 and ME3. The only thing i liked about it was the upgrade system for weapons and armor

The wonky combat is probably why I can't bring myself to get through Insanity mode all the way, but I gotta say there's also something likable about it on normal difficulty, there's really not many other games with a combat system quite like it!

The combat sucked in 2007 and it still sucks now, combined with the mako and multiple playthrough make it a massive chore

That's why I never bothered to play thru it again on PS3. Xbox360 and PC were enough for me..

Just play on easy for the story, do the glitches that allow you to earn all the difficulty related trophies and the combat won't be an issue.

Even besides hating the question "am I the only one?", no you are not. Back in the day, it was a hot topic of discussion, especially after ME2 released (and believe it or not, there were a ton of people that did not enjoy the focus on tighter combat for ME2, which kind of put a wedge in the fanbase because of the gameplay overhaul).

 

I enjoy 2 and 3 for completely different reasons than how I view -- and, furthermore, enjoy -- 1. 1 was an RPG at its core, for better or worse, which emphasized the RPG over the actual third person shooter elements. If you are coming off of 2 and 3, which are far tighter in the combat department and feel more like story driven third person shooters with a lot of RPG elements, as opposed to an RPG featuring third person shooter elements, the difference is going to be jarring and not in a pleasant way.

 

I still go back to 1, but it by far had the most tedious achievement list out of the bunch, and some could even go as far to say it hasn't aged well as a whole.
