a few of those you mentioned are not FPS. so I'm assuming you're partial to a 3rd person view games too. I'd say Tomb Raider is good.

Which Call of Juarez games have you played? CoJ: Gunslinger is awesome. Probably one of my favorite releases this year.

On top of that, I would strongly suggest Singularity and the 2009 Wolfenstein.
Also, Condemned is a great horror/thriller first person game. And the first two FEAR games deserve some attention.
TimeShift can be fun in a campy B-level sci-fi kind of way.

Other then those...

Chronicles of Riddick
BulletStorm (not for everyone, but I enjoyed it)
Brothers in Arms series (Specially Hell's Highway)

And, if you have the means to find them....

No One Lives Forever 1 and 2
TRON 2.0

From what I heard, it might take a bit to get Brothers in Arms working on Windows 7 x64/8 x64, but it can be done (they're older games). They're probably games that would go well being remade and also be sold on the next gen consoles. Talking of remakes, although it isn't quite like the original game you could try out 'Rise of the Triad' which has just been released. It's a FPS, but it's technically more of a TTPFPS ('Taking The Piss' First Person Shooter) .

You also have Black Mesa (Half-Life 1 remake), Half Life 2 series (HL2, and the Episodes 1 and 2). For Half Life 2 I very strongly recommend the use of the full 'Cinematic Mod' by Fakefactory on it. CM2013 is currently in alpha (it works), will be great when it comes out. With a bit of changing of the options (such as applying the high-def characters in the character pimper) it does make for a good lengthy-ish bit of gameplay.

CM2013 trailer:

Just remember to select 1080P, restart the video from the beginning and watch full screen

May want to look at Mass Effect(all) its third person but really good or any of the recent Fallout's.

Also why have you not played Boarderlands 1 or 2 you can play those solo.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R series, ALL! However, for best experience I recommend patching all to the latest since the stock versions are pretty buggy.

Go through the Painkiller series. Of course the first 3 are the best!

- I hate far cry 2+3 only the first was good.

No more black outline TUTORIAL- Edit the ini file:

Go to your .ini config files directory. On windows 7, this is Documents/My Games/Borderlands 2/WillowGame/Config.

or

It's also possible to edit *installDir/Program Files(x86)/2K Games/Borderlands 2/Willow Game/Config

Find WillowEngine.ini (or DefaultEngine.ini)
Ctrl-F to find "WillowScenePostProcess"
Replace with "CinematicScenePostProcess"*
You can also set the file to read-only. (not needed)

As fellow members suggested above Singularity is a great shooter and also Hard Reset. They are quick and colourful with great shooting mechanics. (not to be confused with Serious Sam or Painkiller style).
For a good atmospheric FPS the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games are one of the best!

All the Call of Juarez games are in Mexico.
But, the latest one CoJ: Gunslinger is beyond awesome.

The one set in modern times, "The Cartel"... is awful. And should be avoided.

Aliens vs. Predator wasn't too terrible.

My vote would be Serious Sam 3 though. In fact, you should get all of them because they are all great games.

i would recommend Mirror's edge and darkest of days as two distinctive type of shooters, the former is a current gen classic to me.

I can vouche for TRON 2.0. If you can get it be sure to get the free Killer App that adds additional features to the game and enables you to run the game on current Windows versions (at least Win7 32 and 64 bit). The game makes you feel totally immersed in the game and story. Very well done.

A few people here mention Far Cry. Keep in mind each game is completely different from the others.

FC1 = Tropical islands setting and an interesting story with a Sci-Fi element. A great FPS with a large map and some very challenging points along the way. Graphics are a bit dated but the game is still visually stunning and lots of fun to play.

FC2 = Set in an imaginary African country with a broad variety of environments (desert, jungle, mountains, savannah, etc.). This offering has very strong realism in terms of player controls and combat. The main story is very simple but the realistic interactive environment and combat with mercenaries during missions is the heart of this FPS. No scripted play which makes this game the gift that keeps on giving.

FC3 = Back to a tropical island setting. FC3 seems to be a hybrid of the previous two games. Heavy use of automated gameplay (quick time events and fully scripted major battles with screen prompts). There are elements of FC2 (capturing outposts) and FC1 (tropical islands) but the game introduces a lot of activities in-game that have nothing to do with the story or gameplay in general (more like sidebar activities and hobbies if that makes sense). People love the graphics...but many find the game to become boring rather quickly.

F.E.A.R 1 + expansion packs, F.E.A.R 2 + DLC and then if you must F.E.A.R 3 which was ok but no where as near as good as the first 2.

Please read the OP he listed dead space and Alan Wake both third person action/adventure, mass effect is closer to a FPS than those two games.
