I haven't played any Baldur's Gate, but if you've got money to spend for this year, Dragon Age looks like the best choice. The only other games coming close would be Modern Warfare, which is overpriced and Borderlands, which, while excellent, is not as good a deal as Dragon Age.
This is assuming of course, that you're talking about the year only. Because if not, you may want to hold on for the numerous awesome games coming next year before making your call. >_>
