Quick TakePersonal tastes aside, it's hard to complain about TotalBiscuit's picks. In a way or another, the games he choose are a wonderful specimen of their genre.
As a personal addendum, I wholeheartedly reccommend you pick up The Longest Journey (which is not Dreamfall 1 -frowns at TB-), Psychonauts, Duke Nukem 3D, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat and Mount and Blade: Warband. The other games are wonderful too ( I heard 4X enthusiasts call Age of Wonders 3 one of the best instances of turn based strategy ), but the ones I mentioned are the ones I would reccommend to anyone is only tangentially interested in that kind of genre ( based on my personal tastes of course ).
