    I'll go even older school. My favourite video arcade game was Space Invaders. However, I like even older games than that. I almost bought an electromechanical pinball machine back in 1991. Electromechanical pinball machines were pre-1977 era.
    My first arcade memory is playing battlezone. My dad had to hold me up to the periscope so I could play the game

    I stood on a milk crate to play Bally's Captain Fantastic pinball in a Lawson's convenience store back in 1976.

    Now you're talking. Old-school arcades and pinballs are the best. Don't get me started on pinball... :P

    It's a really hard choice but I would have to decide between:

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
    or
    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (GOTY Edition)

    That is a tough one. I think it would depend on the day. I loved the original Metal Gear, and played endless upon endless hours of Contra. I think I'd have to go with Final Fantasy X, though. I put well over 300 hours into that game. I haven't played it in a while, but when I found out they were releasing a remastered version of it on the PS3, I had a complete and total knee jerk reaction to buy it.

    Unreal Tournament original, Age of Empires II: The Conquerors, and Order & Chaos. They are all addicting.

    I forgot about Bubble Bobble! That was a great one. Bust-a-Move was pretty good too. So many Bust-a-Move variants out on the different app stores now, such a classic game.

    An arcade Mame game called speed rumbler or sometimes called Rush and crash. It was like a very early GTA.
    Plus Diddy Kong racing, that game went on n on.

    The metal gear solid series is definitely one of my favorites, the storyline has an amazing amount depth to it. Another favorite of mine is the legend of Zelda series but the legend of Zelda ocarina of time on the gamecube in particular.

    My fav arcade game was Star Wars.... I own a star wars cockpit from 1983 (and a few other coin op arcade games), I did have a upright star wars for a while but, restored (about 80%, need new side art) a cockpit.

    Console/PC games or shall we say more modern games, Uncharted Series, GTA4, American McGee's Alice, Hmm....

    I play games as much as I can and I have played 1,000's of games over the years from the Atari 2600 all the way to 360/PS3, it's really hard to claim a Fav....REALLY HARD as there were MANY great games over the years.

    I have to say Empire Interactive's ProPinball series. I love ALL their games. Original mechanics and things of that nature. Whats bad is that Zen Studio's game can't scratch that itch that Fantastic Journey gave me. Besides that, the Windows8 game feels too much like a video game, ProPinball just handled like a real table.
    I still occasionally get to play a James Bond pinball table after I visit my local bowling alley.

    I almost could pick just one game as my favorite, it would have to be between Monster Truck Madness 2 or SimCity 4 Deluxe.
    A close runner up would be the Streets of SimCity (whenever it wouldn't crash.)

    It got to be Zelda: Ocarina of time. If not, that one, the Batman Arkham series... and third place...Uncharted Series.

    Hmm... I'm not sure if I could choose any ONE game as my favorite since they all are so different and special in their own way. I like how one poster put the top games of theirs for a console...

    But, if I had to choose 'one' game that really stands out, it'd be Command and Conquer - specifically Red Alert. Man, I loved those games. Only limited by how much money you had. Massive tank rushes against your opponent

    But, there are so many great games from the past - Battletoads, Mega Man X, A Link to the Past, XCOM UFO Defense, Doom, Goldeneye, and more.

    We've been lucky to play some pretty fantastic games.

    This is so hard to answer. I have to give them by genre.

    Favorite RPG: Fallout 3.
    This game is easily top 5 all time for me. To top it off, the soundtrack of old vintage songs really hit it out of the park for me.

    Favorite Shooter: Halo

    Favorite Multiplayer: tie between COD MW2 and Halo 3

    Favorite Survival/Horror: DeadSpace 2

    Favorite RTS: Star Craft 2

    Favorite MMO: Star Wars The Old Republic

    Favorite Platformer: Super Mario Bros

    Favorite Series: Mass Effect
