I just got turned on to this and thought I'd share the love...

Mount and Blade
http://www.taleworlds.com/

First person medieval combat - with a focus on mounted combat. It's also got some RPG/sim elements as you're basically a free lance knight out to build a retinue, recruit warriors, and generally make a name for yourself in what is ostensibly 13th century Europe. You can download the demo and build characters up to level 8 before the game will kick you out. I opted to buy a license the moment that happened - this game is so worth $35. It's single player only and the AI isn't great but the game is still a blast.

If you want a newbie guide, this is the best:
