What Steam game(s) is/are worth buying?

Just made a Steam account. I've started out with purchasing games like Portal 2, Borderlands, Garry's Mod, etc. I'm not really concerned about price. Mainly interested in open-world and FPS games:)

    My steam list is almost as large as a dictionary (okay, still have a ways to go), but I've only played about 1/4th of it. See, that's where Valve gets its money from. You see a game for $2, you pick it up regardless, even if you are only mildly interested. Pretty soon, your catalog is overflowing with games that you've never even installed (I've probably never even installed 30 or more). So, having said that, there are some games on Steam that you HAVE TO pick and and HAVE TO play. If you don't, you are missing out on some of the best games ever created (believe me). So, before spending your money on any other games that you aren't exactly interested in, pick up these must-have titles FIRST, then resume the buying madness (or at least save some money for a daily deal on these awesome games). Here's a list, complete with a few of my favorite games. My tastes vary greatly, so you'll see many different genres (pick around the ones you don't like). These are in no particular order (meaning no game is "better" or "worse" depending on placement, I don't have time for that). So, with that being said, let's get to the list!

    The Longest Journey

    Brothers in Arms Road to Hill 30

    Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition

    Postal 2 Complete

    Unreal Tournament 2004


    Deus Ex Game of the Year Edition

    Quake 3 Arena

    Alan Wake

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

    Max Payne (series)

    Arma (series)


    Oddworld Abe's Oddysee and Exodus

    Company of Heroes

    Mount and Blade Warband (with Napoleonic Wars)

    Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion

    Hitman Blood Money

    Splinter Cell Chaos Theory

    Rainbow Six 3


    Keep in mind, there ARE more, I just don't have the time to write them, so don't come bashing for not including an "essential" game (like Bioshock for example).
