I am looking for some good games I can get on steam for under 15 dollars. They can be shooters, RPGs, Simulations, sports, or RTS games. New games or old. Suggest me some good or interesting games. Much thanks in advance.

Be as specific as you possibly can, there are hundreds of games that are <$15 on Steam =/

You can try to wait for a Steam sale, those things make everything super cheap. 
 
I got most of my library on sales so I can't really recommend them since they cost a lot more now.

Alien Swarm and Trackmania Nations Forever are both free.

@BeachThunder: The thing I am most looking for is actual games (the 10/5 dollar sections are filled with DLC and bad games), that are either interesting or good. I also would like some smaller games/indie games, which usually come along with the cheaper price point.

America's Army 3 (I think it was 3) is also free on Steam.

If you'd like to try something different, I recommend I-Fluid. It costs $5 on Steam right now.

Well, Zeno Clash is interesting, in fact, it's downright weird. Anyway, some more ideas:
 
Audiosurf
VVVVVV
Braid
And Yet it Moves
Ben There Dan That Pack

Well, Braid is simply amazing!  Mind was blown when I played this game.  Also, right now, Darksiders is $10 until monday.  I bought it, but haven't played it yet.  But apparently its a good game.  And for $10, I can think of worse games I have spent that money on.  *cough* Spyro *cough*  Enter the Dragonfly *cough*.  I was young and just got my ps2.  Don't judge me.

@Legend: Oh sweet, that's an actual game now? I remember playing that game when it was just a weird tech demo/project thing. That's really cool, I should grab that.

I doubt the thread creator is still looking for suggestions 2.5 years later, but if he is, he's free to make a new thread.

Locking this down.
