I am looking for a game to ease my friends into role playing [closed]

Let me start with saying it’s been many years since I played D&D. I have a group of friends that meet every week to play board games like Descent, Heroquest, etc. The thing is, none of these friends have any experience with role playing, as you probably know, the idea of acting like they are the character is hard to overcome at first. Not to mention, their imaginations are definitely out of practice.

I know there are a lot of new games out, ones that have tiles, cards, etc, but still allow you to role play. I figure something like this would help ease them into the genre. At least this way, they wouldn’t have to imagine every little detail right off the bat.

If you have any suggestions, please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for your time.
