    Platformer - Yoshi's Island
    Puzzle - I don't play a lot of pure puzzle games, so I'll think on it
    RPG - FFVII
    Action: Kind of depends on how we distinguish this from Adventure. Let's just go with Secret of Mana here so I don't say the same thing as for Adventure.
    Fighting: I don't know. I'm a bit partial to Street Fighter II, but I'm not hugely into fighters.
    MMO: Don't play these.
    FPS: Ditto.
    Rhythm: I don't play a lot of these. Sayonara Wild Hearts is kind of one and it's pretty good.
    Adventure: We talking like Monkey Island or like Zelda? If Zelda counts, then Horizon Zero Dawn probably counts too, and I like that better than Zelda. If it's more Monkey Island type, well I really like Tales of Monkey Island.
    Racing: Super Mario Kart, probably.
    Mobile: No.
    Survival Horror: Another one I don't play much. Maybe Silent Hill.
    4X - I literally don't even know what this is. Never heard of it.
    Tactical/Strategy - FFT
    Sandbox - Uhhh....drawing a blank here. I'm not really a GTA fan though.
    Visual Novel - Definitely Zero Escape. Not sure if 999 or Virtue's Last Reward.
    Stealth - MGS3

    That's a lot of thinking to do, but let's see..

    • Platformer - Celeste
    • Puzzle - Tetris, nothing against other puzzle games as there are some amazing ones, but there's no beating this classic
    • RPG - Trails of Cold Steel 4
    • Action - A rather broad genre, this I'd say Metroid Prime (which i consider an action-adventure game, rather than FPS)
    • Fighting - Blazblue (More specifically, probably Chrono Phantasma Extend)
    • MMO - Final Fantasy XIV
    • FPS - Unreal Tournament (1999)
    • Rhythm - Elite Beat Agents
    • Adventure - As with action, very broad. For the sake of making things simple for myself, I'm going to just interpret this one as point & click adventure and say Grim Fandango (which ironically is not point and click but whatever, just roll with it )
    • Racing - Gran Turismo 3
    • Sports - Considering I haven't played sports games in ages..I'll say WWE Smackdown for PS2, can't remember which Smackdown game though.
    • Mobile - Genshin Impact
    • Survival Horror - Resident Evil 2 Remake
    • 4X - Civilization V, but really only by technicality because it's the only 4X game I've played.
    • Tactical/Strategy - Utawarerumono (either Mask of Deception or Mask of Truth)
    • Sandbox - Terraria probably? Only other real contender would be Minecraft, but I'd say I probably enjoyed Terraria more.
    • Visual Novel - Ever17: The Out of Infinity
    • Stealth - Deus Ex

    • Platformer - Hollow Knight
    • Puzzle - Tetris
    • RPG - Chrono Cross
    • Action - Sekiro
    • Fighting - Smash Ultimate
    • MMO - Guild Wars
    • FPS - Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for multiplayer, DOOM 2016 for singleplayer
    • Rhythm - Elite Beat Agents
    • Adventure - Twilight Princess
    • Racing - Gran Turismo 4
    • Sports - Rocket League if it counts
    • Mobile - Hanging with Friends back in the day, I don't play mobile games now
    • Survival Horror - Resident Evil 4
    • 4X - Civilization IV
    • Tactical/Strategy - XCOM: Enemy Unknown
    • Sandbox - Miner Dig Deep
    • Visual Novel - Haven't really played any, I guess Persona 4 would be the closest
    • Stealth - Metal Gear Solid 3

    I'm only going to include genres that have a game in my top 50 or so overall games. If you can't place even that high as a genre to me I won't bother.

    Puzzle - The Talos Principle
    RPG - Gothic 2
    Action - Dark Souls
    Rhythm - DDR
    Adventure - The Secret of Monkey Island
    4X - Civilization
    Tactical/Strategy - FFT
    Sandbox - Yakuza 0
    Stealth - Deus Ex

    Platformer - Super Mario Bros. 3, mostly for the time it came out and how much that influenced me, the SMW games are also right up there
    Puzzle - Tetris, really can't do better than the classic
    RPG - Final Fantasy VI
    Action - The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, I consider this in the "Action" category which is a super broad category!
    Fighting - Super Smash Bros. Melee, despite never owning a GC, I felt this was the best one
    MMO - Final Fantasy XI
    FPS - Goldeneye 007, what a defining game!
    Rhythm - Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call
    Adventure - Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, I'm considering the old school definition of the point and click "Adventure" category
    Racing - Mario Kart 64
    Sports - Super Punch Out!!
    Mobile - Pokemon Go
    Survival Horror - N/A, don't really play these
    4X - Age of Empires 2, probably the only one I've played
    Tactical/Strategy - Final Fantasy Tactics
    Sandbox - Pirates! Gold, I'm just going to call this the Simulation category
    Visual Novel - OK I just saw this so I guess ZE:VLR goes here, though I'm not sure what "Adventure" is?
    Stealth - Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, curious category since a lot of action games include stealth

    EDIT: How funny, about half of us considered "Adventure" as the old point and click variety (but then what is a Virtual Novel?) and half considered it "Action/Adventure" like Zelda.

    Also you need a Metroidvania category, WK. 2 of my top 10 games are in that category (and defined it).

    "Adventure" is not a real genre, that is why. A game in basically any other genre could or could not be an Adventure game. Stealth is the same way, and so is Action, and probably some others.

    I can't believe how wrong this is, there is Sleeping Dogs, Yakuza, Saints Row, and for those who like that sort of thing Minecraft and Terraria. I bet Dragon Quest Builders is pretty good, too, although I haven't personally played it

    I left some of the categories vague just to see how people classify things.

    Oh yeah. I forgot about Phoenix Wright. The third Phoenix Wright game in particular is really good. Might have to change my vote. You know what? I can still do Zero Escape and put it under puzzle game. Why not?

    Also, mentioning Yakuza under sandbox makes me think that's probably my choice for that category too. Prp ably Kiwami 2.
