Killing Floor.

I thought it was just a cheap version of L4D, bought it before L4D2 came out.... still playing KF. Haven't touched L4D2 since.... well, a couple months after it came out, I guess.

Recently two titles have completely surprised me.

Singularity, probably one of my favorite single player fps now.

Just cause 2, a great sandbox game with tons of fun stuff to do, with a decent enough story.

Portal/TF2: My friend bought me the orange box as my "first pc game" (after I built my first pc). I honestly had no idea what to expect, except that the TF2 game looked stupid, and I "wasn't into puzzle games." Again. Wow.

Just Cause 2. Got it as a free key with a GPU I bought for a build I was working on for someone. He didn't want it so I activated it, and started playing.. Wow! I don't even think I did much of the missions, only grappled around and flew stuff!

Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from butcher bay

Did not expect it to be as good as it was. In fact I still quite enjoy it.

I went on YouTube and saw in my sub box that all these "minecraft" videos were being uploaded onto Machinima..
I decided to take a look.
It looked like crap, pixels and blocks. But then I kept watching.
As I watched, it turned into a fun adventure/building game, with tons of modding.
A few days latter I decided to purchase it during the beta (15 euro, I paid $21 USD), it was the best investment I have ever made. I've played that game probably longer than any other game I've had and I only spent about $20 on it. Best money ever spent.
