Best ones for me: Witcher 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Portal 1/2, Max Payne 3.

Also, PCs have genre that consoles don't have: MMOs. If you want a game that will last you a few years, you can check out World of Warcraft ;) .

Since you're new to pc gaming, I'd recommend something a little mindless and fast paced to get you hooked 'asap'! :)  Try the following:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1, 2 AND 3
Half Life 2 and its episodes (1 and 2) - The original of this is what made me the user I am today!! :D 

Some of the slower ones:
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Deus Ex

Glad to have you onboard :D 

Well it really depends on what you play on he over consoles, if you like fast tempo games and want huge battles with more players then your able to have on console, BF3 would be very addictive.

Other than that you can try out strategy games like Total war, as a introduction all of thoose series are great and can really give you something you would not of experienced on Console.

Another one if you want to try your hand at MMO would be Guildwars 2 and you may even meet people in your clan that play other PC games online and you can actually create a network that way. So even if your friends dont have a PC game rig. You still will have other people to play with when your actually online.

And Skyrim for just good old adventure. I also found Dragon Age Origins great, second one not so much but still it will be a change to what you have had before.
