Good question, but tough to answer...

1. Q*Bert (Arcade) - The first game I remember becoming obsessed with, and getting really good at. It’s still my favorite game ever.

2. TMNT (Arcade) -  I played the hell out of this at the bowling alley while my parents were doing league bowling. Currently my second favorite game ever.

3. Super Mario Bros (NES) - It blew me away the first time someone showed it to me. It demonstrated the direction home video games were going, and prompted me to get an NES.

4. Final Fantasy II (IV) (SNES) - After I decided I hated Final Fantasy I on NES and that RPGs weren’t for me, I enjoyed this game so much it brought me back to the genre.

5. Street Fighter II (SNES) - The graphics and animation of the arcade version were mind-blowing at the time, and it became one of my most anticipated home console releases. It got me into the fighting game genre (not that I’m any good, I suck against other players, but I enjoy learning all the characters and beating the AI)

Final Fantasy VIII - The first game which really opened my eyes to narrative within gaming. I remember borrowing my brothers friends copy for the day and played it non-stop. It was just a very compelling experience and one I still hold fondly.
Mickey Mouse & Donald Duck: World of Illusion - Certainly a comfort game, one that I just remember playing often single or two player.
Shenmue - I remember buying a pre-owned Dreamcast after it tanked just for this game! & Boy was it worth it. Still to this day I find Dobuita one of the most richly detailed environments in gaming.
Tekken 3 - I would play Survival Mode endless amount of times, best score was 103 Wins.
Crash Team Racing - Many fond memories of 4-player Cup Tournaments that lasted beyond midnight!
