Simple. Name your favorite game or games per genre. You don't have to copy my format.

I will start.

Platformer-Super Mario World and Super Mario 64. I feel SMW is just perfection. SM64 is more nostalgia. I started with the first on NES and SMB in arcades.

RPG-lol ok I have so many RPGs I love that this list would be almost endless. No matter what I write I would be leaving a bunch out. So will name some of my faves. Ys I-II Chronicles fave game ever. Xenoblade Chronicles X. Guardian Heroes,Dragon's Crown,Dungeon's & Dragons Arcade. (yeah also can be classified as a brawler but to me they are side scrolling RPGs as well) Grandia II and boat loads more.

Brawler-TMNT Arcade,X-Men Arcade,Captain Commando,Streets of Rage,Final Fight,Golden Axe,Ninja Warriors.

Fighting-Guilty Gear,Street Fighter II..just about any 90s Capcom and SNK fighter and most SEGA 90s fighting games. Outlaws of the Lost Dynasty.

Shmups-MUSHA,Gaiares,Raiden games,Cave games in general,Astebreed.

Run n Guns-Assault Suit anything,Contra NES games and Contra III,Ranger X.

Character Action
-Bayonetta 2,Metal Gear Rising,Strider 2,Strider 214,Ninja Gaiden II,Ninja Gaiden 3 RE(yup)

Third Person Shooter-VanQuish,Binary Domain,Earth Defense Force 4.1.

FPS-Turok,Turok 2,Wolfenstien 3D,Serious Sam

Will save the rest for later. Also people debate these so much I will just say whatever you classify Shenmue and Yakuza..they are some of my faves in that genre.

Brawler- Batman: Arkhan Asylum, Double Dragon, TMNT IV: Turtles in Time

There's a few genres I don't play enough games in to warrant listing a category (SHMUPs and Fighting for example), but I also can't just lump all RPGs in one big one so it probably evens out :lol:

I tried to go for four for each category with only one game per franchise. I also tried to put the games in the proper categories, but I may have put some in incorrectly haha.

Action:
Gal*Gun: Double Peace, Ziggurat, Strider 2, Metal Slug (Steam)

Action Adventure: Shadow of Destiny/Memories (PS2), Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut

Platformer: Yoshi's Wooly World, Super Mario 3D World, Frogatto & Friends, FEZ

Simulation: Stardew Valley, Trauma Team, Cook, Serve, Delicious!

Visual Novel: Hatoful Boyfriend, Steins;Gate, Trigger Happy Havoc: Danganronpa, Harmonia

Action RPG: Yakuza 0, Tokyo Jungle, LoZ: BotW, Nier, Ys I & II (Steam)

Turn-Based RPG: Ar Tonelico, Atelier Ayesha, Undertale, Suikoden
