You should also play Planescape: Torment, though that probably requires an inferior computer to what you now possess.
Mass Effect 2 is lots of fun, better than the original I think. Combat and character progression in Dragon Age 2 is better, but I don’t think the story is as cohesive.

Planescape: Torment has been on my list for a while now, but I don’t know of any cool sequels that are upcoming, so it didn’t fit the pattern.
In addition to everything else, the problem is that the thing ought to run on Mac…

Hm, some people play Planescape via CodeWeaver on a Mac. No Windows license required since it works via Wine. That sounds very cool.

I was really disappointed from the Dragon Age 2 Demo, I couldn’t even get myself to finish it…
Skyrim looks and sounds great but I guess one will need a rather powerful PC to play it.

Planescape runs nicely in parallels, otherwise. I have a much nicer experience with parallels than with wine.
And I didn’t like DA2 at all. Many conversations are completely immersion-breaking and not fitting a fantasy setting, and the fight mechanics are completely broken and stupid. Using any kind of strategy instead of spamming the 2 or 3 combos that give you +600% dmg actually makes your fights last longer. And bossfights….Yay, hit x button for 400 times until the boss is dead.
I did like the original DA, though, and ME2 is great.
