What to play next?

My goal this year is to put a dent into my back catalog. As it stands right now it is only about 15+ games deep which isn't ridiculous but is a lot for me. I usually sit around 3-5 games so I have some work to do. I started up the first F.E.A.R. (first game on my list) and I'm about 3 hours into it and having no fun. It doesn't seem to have aged too well but on a side note, bullet time is fun. I do plan on finishing this game but is  F.E.A.R. 2 any better or is it more of the same? It is the next game on my list but I'm wondering should I play the game so shortly afterwards or should I play something else on my list in-between the two? I still gotta play Enslaved, Arkham Asylum, Dragon Age, Red Dead among other games.
On another note, one of my friends converted me to Steam and what little personal spending money I had left I spent on there. Luckily and unfortunately, I'm on a Mac so there wasn't much to choose from but I did pick up a few games including the fantastic VVVVVV. Really awesome game and I immediately picked up the equally awesome soundtrack, PPPPPP, after 10 mins of playtime.
