For me, it's a tie between Grand Theft Auto and Metal Gear Solid, with Half-Life (and Portal) a close second, and Bioshock rounding out third.

I Love the Battlefield Franchise for the multiplayer, and any good story driven games. I like some RPG's but usually not that much.

Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, Persona, Half-Life, and Demon's/Dark Souls would be a pretty accurate top 5.

Platformer: Sonic the Hedgehog

Puzzle: Not sure if Ace Attorney can be called as such, but if not I would give it to Portal as a runner up.

First Person Shooter: Halo (The trilogy. Not 4 or Reach.)

RPG: Elder Scrolls.

Sports: None because I loathe sports games.

Strategy: Civilization.

Fighting Games: The main type of game I play so it's REALLY hard for me to decide this. I would give it to either Mortal Kombat or Blazblue. Most fighting game franchises are awesome though.

ARPG: Torchlight.
