@ReVamp: I see. In which case I would say Splinter Cell. Not one of my favorites, but a pretty decent series.
The Witcher or the Witcher 2 are third person, but not shooters. They're rpg, and are popular. I can vouch for the first one as being good (kinda buggy though) so I'd say to get the second one if you wanted to give it a go.
Also, if you are into star wars Jedi Outcast is quite godly, but way before 2007
