    Can't post just one favorite.

    Quake 2 - lmctf and lfctf
    Quake 3 - DM
    Everquest - Yes Everquest. As much as it ticked me off, I spent too much time to deny my passion for the game.
    ES: Oblivion - The more I play it the more I like it.

    *edit*
    Post 512! Woot!

    Simulator: Freespace 2
    No other sim has such an epic story with plot twists - not to mention gi-normous ships!
    Honorable Mention: Tie-Fighter & X-Wing

    FPS: Half-life 1
    For the pioneering game that it is (story line, interaction) this game needs no introduction. The ending was kinda lame though...
    Honorable Mention: System Shock 2

    RTS: Starcraft
    Didn't play too many, but still - endless hours in the college dorm
    Honorable Mention: Command and Conquer (Original + Red Alert)

    Adventure: Full Throttle
    I remember playing as a kid - time to break out the dosbox.
    Honorable Mention: Syberia

    Platform Shooter: Gradius V
    I have yet to beat Gradius V - the ending levels are too damn hard.
    Honorable Mention: Radiant SilverGun, Ikaruga

    RPG: Shining Force 3
    I love my saturn - and if I spoke Japanese, I would import the other 2 in the series

    Action RPG: Kingdom Hearts
    Call it a kiddie game or whatever...it's just too fun!

    Racing Simulator: Grand Tourismo 3
    Can you actually believe I sat down and did 3 hour endurance races......the horror!

    2D Fighter: Marvel vs. Capcom
    I go with the original, just because it was first and well done. The games following got a little too combo crazy...
    Honorable Mention: Guilty Gear XX

    2D SideScroller: Sonic 1 and 2
    The crazy hedgehog in blue!
    Honorable Mention: Archrival - Mario

    Puzzle Game: Super Puzzle Fighter
    Where else can you get Chibi Street Fighter Characters?
    Honorable Mention: Tetris

    Good Excuse as "Exercise": Dance Dance Revolution
    No comment.......

    Multiplayer-Mayhem: Super Bomberman for Sega Saturn
    If there was one (and probably only good) reason why they created the 6 player adapter....this was it. :D

    As you can see, I like a little bit of everything.

    The first time you saw glQuakeworld fire up using one of the original VooDoo cards, it left you speechless.

    For me it is a tie between the two games that got me hooked on gaming.

    First Game:
    Kings Quest 1: This was a breakthrough for me when it came to PC Games. before I got my hands on this in 1984 the closest I ever came to an adventure game was text based. Now there is nothing wrong with text adventures but when you are eight years old seeing the dragon on the screen is a whole new experience. After I finished that I bugged my parents for any game published by Sierra Online. Back in the day they could do no wrong. Hell, now I'm jonesing for another Space Quest Game. :)

    Seocnd Game:
    Super Mario Bros.: This game changed the way I thought of games. Before I played this I thought the only good game was a computer game, either DOS based or Commodor 64 base. Once I got my hands on an NES back in 1985 I was hooked on this game. I still play the original to this day although I play it on a GBA:SP instead of a NES. Mario is the defining game. No I've gotta go, New Super Mario Bros for the DS is calling my name. :D

    Barring Blizzard stupidity with the servers, WoW. Also Halo, FFX, Ratchet and Clank 3, Spyro 1, 2, 3, and the two n64 Zelda games top my personal favorites.

    Final Fantasy 3 for SNES. It has/had everything - sweet graphics, gripping storyline, excellent interface, characters you cared about, multiple endings, and overall just awesome.

    Recently I've had a blast playing several games...all within a 2 year period. After thinking that gaming was dying a slow death due to people rehashing the same things, 4 *sequels* broke the mold and went above and beyond what I consider to be excellent. Resident Evil 4, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Mario Kart DS, and Elder Scrolls Oblivion are all among my favorite games of all time.
    What about EVER? Final Fantasy 3 (VI to purists), and Baldur's Gate 2 have to be up there for me. Super Mario Brothers 3? Yup, that one, too. Tekken Tag? Best fighting game in recent history. Half-Life? Definitely. Mario Kart 64...oh yeah.

    I still think the best game off time is Street Fighter 2 or more specifically, Hyper Fighting.

    One more vote for Ocarina of Time. It's really hard to say though... I just try to remember how good I thought it was when I played it for the first time.

    Deus Ex intro music gets me pumped and it's major fun to play.

    One of the Half-Life 2 bits of music gets me pumped. Visually the best game I've seen.
