it helps if you name a few games you like

Just Cause 2 (huge open world, third person shooter)
Assassins Creed - the Ezio Trilogy
Metro 2033 & Metro First Light (FPS with decent length campaign)

^that's about 70-80 hours worth of gameplay for 60 bucks

I recommend purchasing Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition if you plan to utilize 2-4 player co-op.

Assassins Creed Heritage Collection

This contains 1, 2, Brotherhood, Revelations and 3. At over 20hrs per title, I'd say that should keep you busy. :)

This costs less than 30 in the UK, so you'd still have plenty of cash left over for something else if you wanted.

I find fighting and racing games to have the longest value (but note that I don't like FPS style games), because there a good game is a good game system, and if you enjoy one, you can enjoy it for ages.

Blur -- great racing game, not too sim, but not too arcadey, and smart weapons/powerups. Good offline play, good online play, and has a split-screen mode (but split screen has a huge flaw that makes it frustratingly inferior).

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and/or Soul Calibur 4 -- I like SC4 better personally, but TTT2 is undeniably enormous. Both are pretty cheap in stores. If you ever liked a 2d fighter, check out BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend and see the state art there. Another game with great play variety and long term play value.

Spelunky -- fun platformer-type game with a generated world each play.

Grab Far Cry 3 this week while it's on sale. I just started it yesterday but so far it appears to have a lot of content that will take a fair amount of time to finish.
