J-RPG: Golden Sun serries e-rated without sacrificing complex themes, awesome class and battle system, some of the best designed puzzles I've ever seen in any game, great music, variety of cultures represented.

W-RPG: Dragon Age great characters, funny as hell at times, scary as hell at others, different back stories and in game choices make for some of the best replay value of any game I've ever touched, well created world, beautiful environments, all and all awesome.

FPS: Bioshock serries Well put together, unique world, beautiful design, creepy as hell atmosphere, great philosophical themes, memorable characters.

Survival Horror: Dead Space Extremly disturbing, feeling of total issolation, great twists, as scary as Silent Hill without getting as boged down in heavy symbolism (please don't kill me) one of the best blends of Sci-Fi/horror since Alien.

JRPG: Tales of Symphonia. A great storyline backed up with great gameplay and art style.

FPS: Half-Life (Single Player) (Good storyline, fast paced gameplay, and good modding community.) and Unreal Tournament (Multi Player) (Fast Paced Gameplay and GREAT modding community.)

Shoot 'em Up:

Simulation Game: FreeSpace 2. (Kickass music, gameplay that is just awesome, and more!)

RTS: Ohhh... This will be a Toughie... I'll hand it over to Rise of Nations, which manages to be a fantastic game all around. Special Mention goes out to the games made by Paradox Interactive, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Dark Crusade, and Warzone 2100.

TBS: Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, hands down.

MMORPG: Probably EVE Online as of now. Rusty Hearts.

RPG: Probably Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, if only because it was the only RPG game I can recall beating.

FPS: Team Fortress 2 and Killing Floor are the current favorites, but another good co-op choice is the Obsidian Conflict Game Mod.

RTS: Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath. Oh, if you could see all the fun mods for it...

Shoot 'em Up: Raptor: Call of the Shadows is a definite favorite.

Platform Game: Tough call. I'd instinctively say Super Mario 64, my favourite Mario game, but admittedly the actual platforming is kind of weak and its main appeal is the adventure elements added. I'll go with Yoshi's Island then. Simple to play through, very challenging and satisfying to get 100% Completion, and there's plenty to explore in the wide open worlds. Incidentally, that's kind of adventure-ish too.

Puzzle Game: Puyo Puyo (as Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine). It seems simple, but requires a lot more thought than Tetris, which makes for some intensive puzzling.

RPG: Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. Despite being a spinoff, it's easily one of the best Mario games with a story that's like the perfect fanfiction for the Mario universe (even a Fix Fic in some ways) and an engaging battle system with plenty of stuff such as Bros. Attack challenges and the upgraded Gauntlet bosses to challenge you in your mastery of it.

Fighting Game: Street Fighter II. Though admittedly I'm not that huge on the genre.

In genres I usually hate:

FPS: Duke Nukem 3D, mostly because I love the comedic tone and Duke's personality.

Left 4 Dead, since killing zombies using teamwork is fun!

JRPG: All the Super Mario RP Gs (Mario & Luigi especially). Humor, Action Commands and Mario! How awesome is that?

Racing: F-Zero. It's FAST.

Minigame Collection: WarioWare. Fun, frenzied and hilarious.
Ceci n'est pas une signature.
FPS: Warsow

RPG: Planescape: Torment

RTS: Starcraft, of course. :P

GYAH! I spent half an hour writing my post before the site somehow ate it!

Oh well. From memory:

First-Person Shooter: Bioshock.

Third-Person Shooter: The Suffering.

Horizontal Scrolling Shooter: Sigma Star Saga.

Vertical Scrolling Shooter: Genetos.

Rail Shooter: Time Crisis 2.

Western RPG: Avernum 2.

Metroidvania: Cave Story if it qualifies, Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure if it doesn't.

Stealth-Based Game: Second Sight.

Adventure: The Trapped Trilogy. (No, not that one, the other one.)

Action-Adventure: Batman: Arkham Asylum.

MUSH: Urban Dead. (Yeah, I know people usually call it an MMO, but I think it's closer to a MUSH.)

Save-Em-Up: Small Fry. (It's a legitimate genre, just a tiny one. Lemmings is the Trope Maker.)

I see a lot of lists, but not a lot of why.
A lil' bentô ?
Because 1) You didn't require it in your OP or the thread's title, 2) I would inevitably go in long gushing wall'o'text if I did. Believe me, I tried to do it for a few games while writing my post, and realized it would make the thing cluttered, so I ultimately cut them, and 3) Most Tropers have never played (or even heard about in some cases) at least half of the games I've mentioned, so explanations wouldn't have been much of help.

Das kann doch nicht sein!
Favorites are quite tricky for me to choose. There are often to many possible candidates. But the ones I can pretty much call favorites are these:

  • FPS: Doom and Doom II
  • Turn-Based Strategy Game: Civilization IV
  • Stealth Game: Thief 2 and Thief: Deadly Shadows
  • 2D Fighting Game: BlazBlue
  • 3D Fighting Game: Tekken 6 (the only Tekken I played)
People aren't as awful as the internet makes them out to be.
