In the realm of RPGs, I still have to give it up for Chrono Trigger. Just a downright incredible and involving game with a beautiful soundtrack!

I've been playing that Mass Effect RPG. Very addictive! (Almost as much as Dracula's Riddle 2.)

Adventure: Metroid Prime

Pure genious, my absolute favourite game. Gorgeous graphics for its time, running at 60fps constantly, many incredible gameplay ideas like the visors (pure genious), huge and challanging puzzles and bosses. There is not a single game ever made whose atmosphere is anywhere near as awesome as that of Prime. A long game worth playing through over and over again.

Platformer: Super Mario Galaxy

Pure fun. Spherical worlds with gravity is simply awesome. I can't think of a game with more variety that stills pulls everything off as well as Galaxy.

Puzzle: Tetris

Falling blocks are awesome.

RPG: Paper Mario

I haven't played that many RPG's, but Paper Mario killed Pokémon because of its crazy humor, loveable characters and incredible soundtrack. I feel true love for this game, more than towards any other. If I let my heart decide the best game ever, this is it.

Racing: Diddy Kong Racing

I don't care if the game runs at 10fps constantly if it's this awesome. Best Video Game music ever. By far.

Sports: Wii Sports

I haven't played that many, but if you saw my Chemistry teacher play it, you'd agree with me that it must be the greatest sports game ever.

Strategy: Lemmings


Multiplayer: Dracula's Riddle 1

I guess co-op counts here too, right? If so, DR1 is simply the game I've enjoyed playing the most with buddies.

Sandbow: Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life

The bull's reaction when you try to milk him is flawless
DR2! Aiming for Hall of Fame! :D

No shit, Sherlock xD

It's not like I hate other consoles (except PS3), it's just that my economy doesn't allow me to buy every console on the market, and since I can't live without Metroid, I don't have much of a choice :P
