Indie games has been keeping things rather fresh and even big names have been fairly nice this year.
If you need a breath of fresh air, grab the 2 latest indie packs: Humble Bundle 5 and/or indie royale grad bundle.
This should give you something "different" to play, rather than Diablo 3 (rather dull if compulsive) or the Call of Duty of the season.
AAA games have gotten so expensive to make that nobody is going to take any risks with them now, so the interesting stuff is going on in the indie realm.
