You won't really find good games if your only exposure is advertising (tv ads etc) need to dig a bit but theres some top shelf stuff.
if you like ARPG's then Path of Exile is a cracker (nz made) and has a massive update comign out in june/july.
Fast paced games? Rocket League is the most fun i've had with a game since CoD 4, and before that was Diablo 2 LoD.
Sandbox games seem to be exploding right now, players unknown battlegrounds, arma, h1z1.
