Terraria is cheap, But it can get boring.
Titan Quest goes on sale.
Battlefield 2 and Bad Company (If you have a console like 360/PS3).

Well, you've picked up several games I already would have recommended, and your links in the OP introduced me to like 3 or 4 new games.

Not much I have left to recommend, though I will say if you don't own it, get Worms Armageddon. The CD version Sold Out Software sells is about 7 bucks depending on where you acquire it, and it can also come with Worms 2 and/or World Party (again, depending on where you get it). Worms 2 is unlikely to work on modern PCs, but Armageddon is still getting updates, and I think World Party has at least a Win 7 fix. Don't bother buying the steam version, you can play with steam users as well as CD users, and the only benefit you have is automatic patch updates.

If you've never ever played Worms and have no clue what it's like, go download Hedgewars, which is free! It's basically the same thing, with different physics and hedgehogs instead of worms. The only reason I suggest Worms over Hedgewars is because Hedgewars is still technically unfinished, it's a good game, but Armageddon just has more content available (not counting cosmetic options, Hedgewars wins hands down here).

I've heard of Sold Out Software as I bought Undying from them. I remember trying a Worms game but I didn't like it. probably cause I sucked at it and/or didn't know what to do. I'll look into Hedgewars though

Yeah, that's the problem with Worms games, they never actually tell you what to do in game, you either find out for yourself or read online. Doesn't help that all the newer games are filled with noobs who intentionally will not tell people stuff to keep an advantage in a match. Meanwhile my first online match in Armageddon, the guy I played with intentionally kept me alive for a while because he could tell I needed time to practice the rope, which seems like patronizing me a bit, but we chatted and had a good time, and I learned a lot of things too.

Hedgewars sadly has less players than it did years ago (fun fact: the original artist for Terraria used to work on it...his leaving dropped the player base a decent chunk), but since it is free, I usually don't have problems convincing people to try it out, and they always get a kick out of all the hats you can choose from.

Free:
Dwarf Fortress


not really into rogue-likes.


Then try its Fortress Mode, it's its main feature. I also don't like the Adventure Mode.
