Every forum needs a favorite games topic... so here you go.
Instead of just trying to pick out one favorite game or randomly throwing the names of a hundred games out there, though, I figure divide it up by genre or sub-genre. Want to consider "ninja game" as a sub-genre? Go ahead and mention Strider or whatever. Just try to list games that are actually your favorites, not just games you kinda like. We shouldn't see any lists of 500 random game titles (that always seems to happen).

Well Adventure ish games Shenmue being the obvious
Okami is another (these games I love to no end everything about them strikes me on every level of experience that no other game/series comes close)

RPG while maybe not the greatest RPG's ever they still bring the most joy to me as they broke me into the Genre
Grandia II
Skies of Arcadia

Super Mario 64
Super Mario World

Point click adventure/interactive novel
AA series

Beat em up
No More Heroes(the gameplay is nothing to be marveled at but the presentation and the humour and characters is so outrageous and brilliant I can't help but love it.)

(nope OL no Madworld...are you shocked? Yeah I love the game but not one of my fave ever games.

So yeah if this was games I loved and really liked I would be typing up a crap load of games and may more genres.
Topics like this are very hard for me as I so want to list like you said a crap load.

FPS: Half-Life
JRPG series: Megami Tensei series (that includes all sub-series; Devil Summoner, Digital Devil Saga, Persona, etc)
Western RPG series: Fallout series
Individual JRPG: Final Fantasy 7
Individual Western RPG: Fallout 2
Point/click Adventure: Grim Fandango

I'll get into niche sub-genres later (giant robot games, ninja games, stylish action games, etc). Remember Ryudo, you can stretch your legs by going into smaller, super-specific genres.

I consider my favourite games to be those that I've completed more than once and would complete again.

KOTOR 1, not so much 2
Jade Empire
Fallout 3

Point and Click
Monkey Island series
Sam and Max Hit the Road
Day of the Tentacle

that's all I can of atm, the first two are the ones that for me sum up all that a game should be.

Of course my list is going to be too long, and completely different from what I've named before, it's just what I can remember at this point in time. I've also put down what version of each game I prefer, just in case there were any ports or remakes.

Action: Resident Evil 4 and Max Payne [both 1 and 2] (PC)
Adventure: Snatcher (SEGA CD) and Grim Fandango
Action Adventure: Shenmue, Ocarina of Time (N64) and MGS1 (PSX)
Best Beat 'Em Up: Guardian Heroes. There is no equal.
Hack and Slash: Either Golden Axe: Revenge of Death Adder (Arcade) or Berserk (PS2)
Best Retro Game (games which have held up with time, as far as my nostalgic viewpoint is concerned): Ristar (Mega Drive), Rocket Knight Adventures (Mega Drive) and Mischief Makers (N64)
Best Platformer: Super Mario 64 (N64) and Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (Mega Drive)
Best RPGs: Vagrant Story and Panzer Dragoon Saga
Best Shooters: Rez (Xbox Live), Panzer Dragoon Orta, Ikaruga (PS2) and Gunstar Heroes (Mega Drive)
Best Ninjas: Shinobi III and Strider 2 (PSX)
Best Horror: REmake (GC), Resident Evil 2 (DC) and Silent Hill 2 (PS2)

Whilst we're at it, shall we put down our favourite stories, characters, music, graphics, controllers, consoles, atmosphere in games etc too? This should be like the "favourites" topic for games that we've played.

Not gonna do categories like some of you are.

Shenmue is my favorite game. (obviously)
Resident Evil (The original or REmake, take your pick) was my favorite before Shenmue came out, now I guess I consider it my second favorite game of all time.
Sonic Adventure
Sonic 1-3&K (With 1 being my favorite out of those 3.)
Final Fantasy IX
Final Fantasy VII
The Halo series. They have really shitty communities, but I still love the series. Hell, I've read all but one of the books.
Mario 3
Super Mario World
Duke Nukem 64 (or 3D. Same game basically, but I played the hell out of it back on N64)

I could go on forever, but those are the first to come to mind when I think of my favorite games.
