Default Recommend me a PC Game!

Hey guys.

I need a new PC Game to play, but I really don't know from the titles out there which games I would like and what I wouldn't like. Sadly I'm quite stuck in my ways, so I think after some small recommendations I should be able to find something fun.

Okay well I'm a HUGE CoD / BF Bad Company player, so those games are my mainstay of gaming. I also love Counter Strike; both the original (brings me back to my college gaming days) and then Counter Strike: Source. What other sorts of games like those out there would you guys recommend to me?

I see games like Fallout: New Vegas and similar, but don't really know if they would appeal to me. So those who have played those kind of games, what are they like? Are there other games like these you think I might like, giving the games I play?

Cheers guys.

Medal of Honour. I love it, others hate it. Only thing I hate is the stupid fucking Bolt Action Rifles (can't OHKO unless head shot or within Stabbing/Pistoling Distance), and the EA Servers. Other than that, it's a good game. (Battle Rifles are class - 3 Shot MAXIMUM kill, and you can go from one end of the battlefield to the next to counter snipe, but still be surprised and fucked up by the Spec Ops and Assault Rifles (which themselves also have the range to take on "camping snipers".

Dragons Age is awesome, especially on a PC. You can get a load of mods as well, including Nude Female's so no more Ultimo Wonderbra's walking around, to awesome weapon mods and graphical updates and the like.

Medieval 2 Total War is quality as well - the basic game is alright, until you find some of the modding communities - Third Age, Warhammer, Stainless Steel mods make the basic game virtually unplayable, compared to how good these are. Also, if you have the time, try reading some of these AAR's - After Action Reports -

Can't go wrong with Star Wars Battlefront. Mixes action with careful planning, to create a pretty great game you can play for ages, and still come back to. But get Battlefront 2, because you can't be the hero in number 1, which was it's main downfall.

Fallout: New Vegas. Especially with the available mods is extremely BADASS.
