X3 Reunion, Terran Conflict et al are awesome games. I ran both on a 7600gs AGP and a dual core core cpu so any modern setup will make it stunning.
New sig coming 19/06/15!!

Nocturne isn't steep. Most jRPG are just braindead simple, so in comparison, it appears that it's complicated since it forces you to use buffs/debuffs and exploit weakness as oposed to spam attack & heal while ignoring the whole selection of spells that are there to look pretty only.

Almost all of your list is "medium" learning best.

I have to agree here, the only ones on that list that have a real steep learning curve are Counter-Strike, and Arma.

I'll also throw in Quake Live, for the steep learning curve.

Dota has steepest learning curve there is.
At around 2k+ hours in CS you'll learn everything you can, after that you can improve only by improving your mechanical skills/reflexes/aiming, while in dota you can learn new things even 5k hours in the game and also mechanical skills are quite harder. It's much easier to hit your skill cap in CS, imo.
Other than that, I don't think anything's been left out.
CS is pretty much the most demanding FPS, dota is the hardest moba, I'm not really into RTS games but starcraft's always been hard.
I don't think singleplayer games can match online multiplayers because you'll learn what the AI does eventually, while you can always get matched against someone who'll trash you in online games.
