For myself, I'd say:

The Half-Life games,
The Batman: Arkham games,
Deus Ex (the original, and play this game first without mods, then you must play it next time with the free, fan-made mod GMDX v9.2 as it's amazing),
System Shock 1 and 2,
Virtual Pool 3,
Unreal Tournament 1999 (the original), and UT 2004,
Carmageddon (the original),
Thief 1, 2, and 3,
Doom 1, 2, and DOOM 2016 (I wouldn't add Doom 3, but some people think it's great),
No One Lives Forever 1 and 2,
Alien vs, Predator 1 and 2 (not the 2010 game, or Alien: Colonial Marines),
GTA 3 San Andreas, and GTA V,
Blood (I'd recommend using the fan-made game engine BloodGDX)
Skyrim,

and *many* more,
I'm a PC and console gamer - I love good games, regardless of their host system.

No one said Vampire the Masquerade yet?
Smash Bros isn't a fighting game.

My list would be filled with old games, but you don't seem like the type who would bother playing a game from 1992.

Hmm... ones I haven't noticed anyone mentioning yet, some of which are on other systems but have great mod support on PC, or that you just might not own:

Fallout series.
Elder Scrolls series.
Dungeon Keeper.
Total Annihilation.
Darkest Dungeon.
Binding of Isaac.
Axiom Verge.
Hollow Knight.
Rock of Ages 1-2. (Short but great... Katamari tower defense!)
Kingdoms of Amalur.
Legend of Heroes: Trails... series.
Tales of Symphonia.
Tales of Berseria.
Most FF games.
Dragon Quest Heroes 1-2.
Some Dynasty Warriors stuff.
Bayonetta 1 was just released for it but I'm not sure if it's optimized.
Nier: Automata is on Steam but see above.
Darksiders, see above.
Fez.
Braid.
Undertale.
Lisa 1-3.
End Roll is an RPG maker game that I REALLY liked and I didn't expect to.
Yomawari 1-2.
Chip's Challenge 1-2.
Legend of Grimrock 1-2 (1 has more mod dungeons, 2 is a superior game).
West of Loathing.
Dwarf Fortress? I haven't played it.
...
Skifree. >_>

It's worth looking into what people have done with programs like RPGmaker. If you don't care about the ethics of emus, you might consider looking at romhacking.net. Beyond the general mods sites like that offer, you can find translations for games that never came out in English and such.

Most of the classics have already been listed. I've yet to see Shadowrun listed. Also, Starcraft 1 and 2 are free now.
