I really can't find anything that can help me improve my guitar playing.

My current level: I can play Ride the lightning, Eruption, and Master of Puppets

Mainly I want songs that can help with my guitar playing.

All songs can help you with your guitar playing.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

branch out, try some vai, satch, racer x, malmsteen, those should push you. if that is not up your alley try some current bands that have decent (still better than me) guitar players, as i lay dying, btbam, mastodon, baroness,etc. I am sure that the pooled knowledge of people on here can give you a plethora of bands that will push your skill level. Either that or just try creating your own music and have fun with that. best of luck!
Gibson LP traditional and DC standard, SG standard, MIA Standard Strat, Schecter Banshee 7

Sounds like a challenge =)

try learning songs in style you are not familiar with, maybe some funk or reggae

Why not jump over to the acoustic side of things for a while, then? Maybe some fingerpicking stuff like a lot of Opeth's acoustic guitars, or just some singer / songwriter -style strumming songs, which will make you learn a shitload of new chords and nice progressions.
Generally speaking, I've found that learning more chords has made me better at improvising / jamming, and also at writing. I recommend it!
