Mario and Devil May Cry 3 were already mentioned, so I'll add:

  • F-Zero GX
  • Super Metroid
  • Soul Calibur 2 (The first game was called Soul Edge/Blade)
  • Burnout 3
  • Quake 3
  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
  • SSX 3
  • Motorstorm: Apocalypse

Edit: I realize the thread is asking for your favorite 3rd entry of all time, so my final answer is F-Zero GX.

Shadow Hearts ! Far and away....

Although Xenosaga 3 is very close as well... I just can't help but feel both Xenosaga 1 and 2 had very unique moments though that might not have totally gotten into 3 (such as Yasunori Mitsuda's score)

Forgot to mention Far Cry 3 back in 2012 this game was such a surprise most FPS turned into COD clones in this era. FC3 was a breath of fresh air so many cool moments and fun gameplay it was the first FPS I was really able to enjoy since Crysis.

Na, a lot of folk here I doubt will have played the series.

Phantasy Star should be a premier, widely played JRPG right now, but... Sega.

@jackamomo: I loved Phantasy Star on the master system, never could get into the genesis ones.

@Macutchi: SO MUCH YES to the Curse of Monkey Island! Still my all-time favorite. I play it when I want to feel happy and remember my grandpa, with whom I used to spend hours in his study playing these games.
