No particular order:

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3(I do not own this)

Excellent is all I can say. Excellence.

Minecraft (Same as above)

Minecraft is fun. You are in a zombie apocalypse trying to survive, you can attack people with a chicken wing. Or swing your sword.

Super Smash Bros. Series


Madden NFL 2005

Well...since I doubt you would be interested, I won't talk about it.

Sonic 2

Awesomeness, I tell you, awesomeness.

I support gay marriage. 

I also support random humor.

2) Skyrim
Just...Skyrim. If you never played this game, what rock are you living in?

I have played skyrim, and the elderscrolls, games, but they are not all that great, i prefer dragon age or fable over that game.

Too many to narrow it down to just five as they change based on what I've been more interested in as of late. For now and in no real order but kinda in order:

-The Witcher series

Amazing story, cool characters, just overall great.

-The Elder Scrolls series

Nothing needs said.

-The Jak and Daxter series (PS2 only, including Jak X)

I played Jak 2 once when I was young and thought it was the coolest thing ever but never had a PS2. When I finally got one, I bought the whole series and loved it. Unique, colorful, and comical. Seemingly innocent yet still pretty hardcore.

-ArmA/OFP series

Mind = blown

-Stalker series

Mind = more blown

I see a lot of Zeldas. Then I see a lot of unusual choices (Ninja Town? I mean... really? I'm not a tower defense fan, but I freaking loved that game. I thought no one bought it.)

For me though, I guess it'd be:

5 Flashback/Full Throttle:
I'm sorry to break the rules, but these are nostalgic(ly?) my two favorite games. While Flashback is a platformer akin to the old Prince of Persia, it's actually a very stiff game, and even fighting is more about placement and timing than skill, which is why I can put it side by side with a point and click adventure like Full Throttle. Both are games I used to play with my dad, and my love of them might explain my love of more cinematic games today. Even though I've played both of them tens of times, I can still go back and play them again, no problem. Well, I might turn on the save states for Flashback...

4 Street Fighter III Third Strike:
The only fighting games I used to play were Super Smash Brothers, some Naruto fighters, and MvC2 in arcades. Street Fighter 4 reintroduced me, and ever since me and my brother started playing it, we can't quit. I later found Third Strike, and after seeing the parry system and characters like Alex, Makoto, and Dudley, I knew I wanted to play it. I'm absolutely terrible at fighters, but every day I get a little bit better, and that makes it all worth it sometimes.

3 Iji:
Iji is the first game that really showed me the potential an indie developer had. I think before Iji, it was Pokemon the Evil Inside 2 on RPG Maker, but that game had to be played while keeping in mind it was indie developed. Iji, though, is a solid game. I'd buy it for a console if I could. It is kinda funny though, when I first played it, I found it slightly boring until about level 3 (first boss fight). That was when the story really hooked me into it's well developed universe. All the weapons you could use and the slight RPG elements were just perfect. Add in all the secrets, and I've beaten Iji 20 or so times.

2 No More Heroes 2:
I love Suda51. He makes some of the most ridiculous games out there, and despite their low polish, I still have fun with them. The second NMHs actually removed a lot of things I loved about the original... but it's definitely a lot more fun to play. Is it sad that when I play this, I actually grab the wii-mote with both hands and swing it like there's no tomorrow? It is pretty pathetic to watch, but it's a better workout than DDR.

1 Resident Evil 4:
I just didn't like RE5, although it was fun with a friend. RE4 really introduced me into the survival horror genre, and coupled with my terrible game skill, made it one of the most terrifying and thrilling games I've ever played. The level design is just about perfect, and despite the overpowered weapons you still got wiped because you had to reload at the wrong time. It's sadly lost it's edge nowadays, but I still play it with super weak weapon sets for kicks.

Hmmm.... rather long post, isn't it?

Also, please check out my site. I just updated it recently. Maybe I'll finish the game sometime in this decade!
Or check out my Youtube Let's Plays. Not the best, but I'm trying to get better. I just beat Noitu Love.

5)Doctor Who and The Eternity Clock-Never actually played it but I'm a HUGE Doctor Who fan and it looks pretty good.
4)Minecraft- The game where you can build anything that also has a brilliant survival-style survival mode.
3)Halo Reach-Awesome Music, physics and millions of possibilities.
2)Mario Kart- Best racing experience ever.
1) Even though I haven't played it in forever, nor am I sure I even still have it, Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2 were both brilliant in the gameplay, story and difficulty. Could've gone without as many disney characters but this was my favorite game as a young gamer.

4: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

3: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

2: Battlefield 1942 Anthology

1: Super Mario Bros 3 (NES or SNES remake)

Number 1 was my first and FAVORITE video game of all time! It completely captures the heart and soul of a born platformer!

It strikes me as strange, how remarkably long it took for Nintendo to make any sort of remake of SMB3, it being on many of the lists I see here...

For those wondering, I don't really have any favorite games past those 4...

5. Portal series
Anyone can under stand this, Portal is great. Both games are smart, funny, puzzling, and... just great, I don't know how else to describe them.

4. Uncharted series
I've seen some many movies that don't compare to the cinematic quality of this game. The story and characters are great, and then there is the fun platforming, challenging gunplay, and huge setpieces that make the jaw descend.

3. All of the 3d Zelda games
Of all of these, I might have to choose Wind Waker as my favorite, but I have enjoyed all of them from OoT to Skyward Sword.

2. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
I used to like this game, but now I love it. I was introduced to the intricacies of the pro-level play and the different gameplay styles... I was introduced to depth and strategy, and I just keep playing to learn more.

1. Kingdom Hearts series
These games, mostly the 2 PS2 games, were amazing. It sounds like a cheap mashup of Disney and Square, but it has a marvelous (and hard to follow) story and great gameplay.

So many game, so few spaces...

5: Cel Damage Overdrive/Road Trip Adventure: these games are really unpopular, probably the worst selling PS2 games out, but I find them quite entertaining.
4: GTA: Love GTA, It's never-ending awesomeness.
3: Rayman 1. Number one on the PS1, the new ones are not my thing - Rabbits? Are you kidding me?
2: Crash Bandicoot. Too bad it's dead now..
1: Tomb Raider 1-5. The new ones are absolute rubbish! Seriously. Core Design>Square Enix

I hate it when people sell rights of the games to different companies, that way they become more rubbish.
Naughty Dog>Sierra
Core Design>Square Enix

You shouldn't ask me those kinds of questions. I'll spend 40 minutes on them.

Fallout 3 cause it's amaze-balls, and cause FREEDOOOM.

Grand Theft Auto IV (and others in series) cause it's amaze-balls, and cause plot.

Minecraft cause it's amaze-balls, and cause mods.

Space Station 13 cause it's amaze-balls, and cause you've never heard of it.

Civilization V cause it's amaze-balls, and cause strategy.

5: Minecraft
Very, very fun. But I hesitate to say it's fun as a game. More as a tool for building these days. Particularly with recent updates with things like command blocks, that are clearly designed for people who create maps rather than 'playing the game'
4: Team Fortress 2
An incredibly fun game, the most fun I have had in an FPS to date. (That might all change when I play Planetside 2 tomorrow) There's an amazing variety of cool weapons, all of which are almost perfectly balanced, a feat that seems nearly impossible; a surprisingly rich backstory, especially for a primarily multiplayer game; it's funny as hell; and it looks delightful.
3: Portal*
Woo, Valve! The Portal games are here for two reasons: Because of their innovative nature, (I mean, a gun that shoots wormholes? Who came up with that?) And because of the dialogue. GLaDOS' sarcasm and black comedy are right up my alley. (I often joke about murder) And the end of Portal 2 may have been the best moment I've had in a video game.
2: Super Mario Bros.*
As well as the historical significance of the original SMB, (without it, video games as we know them may not exist) I still play them. I recently finished pretty much everything there is to do in NSMB2, except the DLC, which I refuse to pay for. The gameplay is still solid after all these years, as well as ingenious and, most important of all, fun.
1: Terraria
Wait, what? Yes, Terraria. That game with the trees and worms. My current opinion is that Terraria is the best game ever. For the ~2 years of development it received, it's a surprisingly massive game, sporting a ridiculous number of cool items (A sword that makes stars fall from the sky, a shark/gun hybrid, a cannon that shoots STARS) and bosses (Giant eyeball, giant flying skeleton) As with the above four games, Terraria is fun as hell, (being in Hell is also fun) and exhibits a lot of depth to it.

That's my current opinion. Admittedly, I haven't played ALL the games, so I'm a bit underinformed. Also, my opinion is liable to change a lot. I see some games that could invade this list in the future, though. Namely, Ace of Spades, Planetside 2, Gunpoint, and Starbound.

*and sequels thereof.

EDIT: Looked back. Didn't expext anyone else to put Terraria as No. 1

@Yokcos: Heh, I was just about to make a new list as my preference has changed, and a lot too. Terraria is now #1 on my list. :D
So, now for a redo on my list.

5: The Kingdom Hearts series. Just... Gah. Kingdom hearts was what made me love RPG games so much, and I have yet to replace it as my favorite RPG series. The story has so much complexity to it, and the characters really grow on you. I love the battle system, as turn based RPGs aren't really my thing, as I like fast paced games.

4: The Jak and Daxter games. They basically made up my childhood, along with the Crash Bandicoot games.(Both made by the company "Naughty Dog". From platforming to fighting monsters, to just exploring the amazing levels.

3: The Crash Bandicoot games. They, much like Jak and Daxter, made up my childhood in gaming. Crash Bandicoot 2 was the very first console video game I owned, and I still love the old games today. (I don't like the new junk they've created with the Crash Bandicoot name. They're just stupid.)
2: Minecraft. There is no telling how much I've played this game in two years. If I see something cool in a movie, I want to create something just like it, which is what I can do in minecraft. The building system is great, and the game is as lovable as ever.

1: Terraria. I hadn't really played Terraria until two or so weeks ago. After playing it with my brothers account, I decided to buy my own. It is the best $10 I've ever spent on a video game. There is so much content, as Yokcos has already said, and it has more depth than minecraft. (Yes, more depth than a 3D game. :P)
In the little less than two weeks I've had it, I've already played 19+ hours. They're also making a console port to it, which is a big +1 for me.
