Btw, my boyfriend loves Dragon Age II, even though he liked the first game better.
Broken Sword 1 & 2
Secret of Monkey Island 1, 2 & 3
Baldur's Gate II
Knights of the Old Republic
And Mass Effect 1 should be where you start - even though ME2 will feel pretty dumbed down when you have. ME3 feels another step down the ladder then but depending on how much freedom you enjoy in your games (I crave freedom myself) it may either feel more streamlined or not.
Some gamers prefer to be led by the hand and not have to think much besides just going from A to B - I prefer giving the choice of A B C D E F etc. and figuring things out myself, exploring and doing side quests - which is more what Baldur's Gate II does and even Knights of the Old Republic in a way.
Again, it depends on what you like or look for in games - freedom and atmosphere are two key words for me and any game where I feel like I'm in a generic on-the-rails action game *cough* Modern Warfare *cough* will make me quit in a heartbeat.
