What other games are as good?
For me the Half Life series are hands down the best games ever made. I can't seem to find any other games that I enjoy anywhere near as much.

Crysis feels clunky. All the war/ history games make me yawn. Tomb Raider looked amazing but the mindless button mashing really ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off.

What are other games that I should be trying?

How is Thief?

If you haven't played Bioshock, I strongly recommend it.

Try Fallout New Vegas or Fallout 3 Game of the year edition

Here's a tip: don't check the first videos of these let's plays so that they don't spoil you the story. Check the second or third video so you don't see the intro.

Will do :)

Fallout 3 GOTY was one of the best games I've ever played imho.
Crysis 1 was pretty but soon became another FPS. Same goes for Battlefiels series, although some of their campaigns were fun. Bioshock 1 was good, 2 was so so. You may wish to chec out Dishonored perhaps.

Some of the Assassin's Creed games weren't bad.

I enjoyed some of the tactical FPS like Tom Clancy games - Rainbow series were fun.

Splinter Cell: Conviction ??? What a piece of crap.
Bioshock (1,2 or 3), Dead Space (1 or 2), STALKER Cal of Prypiat (with mods), Spec Ops The Line (for the story), Alan Wake, Batman Arkham City.

Batman gets a double mention? I like the sound of a great Batman game!

Conviction was a lot of fun. Blacklist was a s**tstorm.

Skyrim (and the other TES Games) is a very enjoyable Game.
Portal 2 is from the makers of Half Life 2 and also very good.
And Payday 2 (if you like Ego Shooters).

I used to like Oblivion, but do you know what? After I played Fallout 3, it felt like it was stupid.
Its combat is just too spongy. There's not that much to do at a time, the maps are too open (giant forests with maybe one or two enemies, boring as hell)... you get the point.

If you're looking for that kind of game, Fallout 3 GOTY is the way to go.
