Default Looking for a new game...help?

So I just built a new rig, I'm looking to add a new game to the collection and not sure what to get. I recently got Crysis and World in Conflict...those are the only two newer games I have. I usually just play warcraft.

What would you guys suggest? I'm somewhat impartial to genre, just needs a decent plot, multiplayer would be nice....and something to push the new system. ;-)

Whatcha think???

are you running vista 64 bit and have 4+ gigs of ram? if so, go buy valve's orange box then go download cinematic mod 8

It won't really tax your system but it looks incredible with the new textures and models.

Also, Oblivion with Quarl's texture pack III looks amazing.

I haven't really bought many new games since Crysis but got 4 for £10 today including Frontlines Fuel of War.
Simple shooter, I like it.

Well, decided on bioshock. I must say I am very impressed with it so far...seems like one of those games you play at night in the dark, so once tonight rolls around, I'll be sitting back with a bottle of delving deeper into rapture.

Performance wise, this game is almost flawless. I love it.
