    I really enjoyed Orcs Must Die 1 & 2 (still enjoying the sequel). It's a good mix of tower defence and action. It's relatively short, but if you try to get five skulls on every level, it can keep you entertained for quite a while. OMD1 is single-player only, OMD2 is single-player or 2 player online coop.

    It's hard to recommend anything else without knowing your taste more.

    Did you look at Just Cause 2 or Saints Row 3? Both games I really liked, they are more like open-ended with missions. I have yet to finish Just Cause 2 (or 1 for that matter) because it gets a bit repetitive at some point, but it's great for that will keep you busy until GW2.

    Thread title says 20$, OP 10$, so what is the budget?

    GOTY edition of Dead Island is available by now and I'd recommend that if you like FPS-ish with a bit of adventuring. Dead Island isn't your typical zombie FPS, but is rather focused on melee combat and therefore requires quite some thinking beyond the standard survival horror games. Even though the game is separated by chapters, generally the world is quite open for exploration and with lots of side-quests.

    Story mode including the DLC's should keep you busy for some time.

    Orcs Must Die 2, Torchlight 2 (but that might not come out before GW2...)

    World of tanks is fun too and F2P, but kind of niche, I think they advertise it as MMO which it's not.

    Steam is still running the Torchlight deal, just to make a note. (Pre)Purchase Torchlight 2 right now, and you get Torchlight 1 free.

    But for anything under 10 bucks? A little lost on what to suggest that would fit into that range. Though Awesomenauts was recently released onto Steam, and I thought the game was darn great fun on the ps3 (its online to boot too).

    I assume you already have the Orange Box? I just mention it because I was late to the party and have been playing a **** ton of TF2 lately.

    Seconding JC2. I basically stole it because I got it on Steam sale and I've put more time in that game than anything I've played outside of a MMO probably ever.

    to progress in the game, you have to destroy stuff and subvert the goverment. Can't beat that.
