Top Dogs (Genres)

The Best games of each respective category are listed below, from "the few" games I have played.

First Person Shooters:

Half Life (Series)
Innovating games with each new chapter, yet still maintaining the most breath-taking sequences in every game, that is the awesomeness of Half-Life.
Runner up: Call of Duty (Series)

Action Adventures:
The Legend of Zelda: A link to the Past + (Series)
Epic stories wrapped up in fun mini-games, side-quests, dungeons, and collecting items; that is Zelda.
Runner up: Psychonauts

Adventure Games:
The Secret of Monkey Island + Series
One of the first adventure games I ever played, and it was one wild ride.
Runner up: Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis

Role Playing Games:
Final Fantasy VI + Series
A ridiculously epic story that never seems to end, combined with ultra-mega gameplay styles, wrapped up with amazing characters and a soundtrack that still cannot be surpassed by so many other games.
Runner up: Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

Strategy (War Style) Games:
Command & Conquer (original)
NOD vs. GDI. One of those gems from the "earlier" days of gaming that was just so cool to play.
Runner up: Heroes of Might and Magic (Series)

Strategy (Tycoon style) Games:
Roller Coaster Tycoon (Series)
After your park hits year # 5, you can look back at your awesomeness and see the 5 roller coasters you created with excitement ratings of 8.9.
Runner up: Theme Hospital

Simulation Action Games
Wing Commander 3
You have Mark Hamill playing Colonel Blair in an epic game that is just... cool.

Driving Games (or racing if you prefer)
Midtown Madness 2
Driving around San Francisco is 10x funner than being limited to a restrictive race track.
Runner up: Need for Speed (series)

NFL Blitz (Series?) ?
Due to the fact that I have not really played any sports games in forever, no games past the year 2000 are listed.

No I have not played Mortal Kombat.
