Here's a list of things I'm thinking about:
Red Dead Redpemption
Left 4 dead
Half life (2)
The Half Life games do a great job of immersing you in the story. Very creative and fun. Youtube or Read/Wiki the story for HL1 and then play all the 2's (There is HL2, HL2 ep1, HL2 ep2). I would even recommend still playing HL1...it is a ton of fun - very groundbreaking at the time...but if you don't have the time you can get caught up on youtube/wiki.
Red Dead Redemption was also a blast but is open world/sandbox like all the GTA game (made by the same company) Lots of fun but you have to have the desire to want to go off and do side missions. I loved it, but considering you said you like FPS this may not be for you.
I never got into Left4Dead, but I believe it is more of a hack/slash the zombie horde and not very story driven
I don't know a lot about Borderlands.
If you want an immersive FPS...HL2 all the way. Get the Orange Box. You can find it cheap somewhere. Probably $20 or less. Has all 3 HL2 games, plus multiplayer Team Fortress and Portal 1. You probably won't care about team fortress and you said you already played portal so if you got orange box maybe you could get some cash for selling stand alone portal? Portal 2 is a lot of fun too if you haven't played that yet.
