    RPG: planescape torment (for story, musik, characters and atmosphere), Mass Effect (3>2>1), vampire bloodlines, diablo (all of them). they are completely different rpgs and because there are no sub genres i name them all.
    MMO: WoW. i would like to name more but everything failed for me. dark age of camelot was the closest to the fun of wow.
    Shooter: serious sam first and second encounter. i also really liked bullet storm and some half life. and painkiller. i detest anything "realistic" like cod and bf. space marine was nice somewhat. i hope dark crusade delivers...
    Strategy: starcraft and warcraft. only play for story so they are the best. perhaps commandos 1 and 2.
    action: undecided. to broad. i would name american mcgees alice 1+2, wolverine origins and mdk.
    stealth: velvet assassin (gameplay not that good but nice atmosphere). i could say deus ex he but i cannot play it sneaky for a whole play through before starting to murder everything.
    Racing: pod, trackmania (all), flatout 2 and i hope the successor of nitronic rush.
    Sports: sport sucks in every form.

    Putting ME3 as the best RPG as put you on my hate-list...
    This will ofcourse be a highly subjective thing but, to but ME3 on RPG is just... mind-blowing.
    And all of your games are very recent ones too.

    Well, anyway.
    RPG:Neverwinter Nights
    MMO: WoW, the only one I've really played.
    Shooter: Close call between Battlefield 1942 and Unreal Tournament.
    Strategy: There's turn-based and real-time strategy, so I'll compromise with 1 of each, Commander & Conquer: Red Alert and the Civilization series.
    Stealth: The Thief series.
    Racing: I don't play them.
    Sports: I don't play them, they're all the same to me.

    You forgot the Adventure genre!
    In which ofcourse, there are a lot of contenders from teh good old days. I'd have to go with Curse of Monkey Island 3 on that one.

    You also forgot Platformer, Puzzle and Indie, though Indie is a very broad term that could be any of the other genres. I just want some genre in which I can name Trine 1 & 2, the most beautiful, atmospheric and cozy games I've ever played.

    looks fun though I see some overlap (racing/sport can be considered the same imo and the action category can also be shooters or any game with action for that matter not to sure what to make of that category) but I'll give it a go

    RPG: Dragon age with a honorable mention of chrono trigger
    MMO: Wow just b4 swtor
    Shooter: Borderlands 2
    Strategy: Rise of nations but in the old days I was a huge dune II fan
    action: Rage
    stealth: Deus Ex human revolution (one of the few I played in this genre and not even finished it yet)
    Racing: Wipeout 2097 is the last one that's only racing I liked and even played
    Sports: I like the odd game of FIFA every now and then

    Man, seeing ME3 and Fallout 3 as fav RPGs... I wish I could piccard these forums lol.

    RPG: Final Fantasy 3 , Final Fantasy 9 (toss up)
    MMO: SWG , WoW
    Shooter: CS 1.3 / 1.6
    Strategy: Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds
    Action: Resident Evil 2
    Stealth: say wot m8?
    Racing: Tokyo Extreme
    Sports: Madden 98
    Fighting (replacing Stealth lol) : Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo / Tekken 2
    Arcade : Afterburner 2 / Street Fighter 3: Third Strike
    Moba : LoL / Infinite Crisis

    They really don't make games like they used to. Please, I dunno how you can have stealth on here , which consists of 2 - 3 whole games lol and not have Fighting. The fighting genre has been a huge influence in gaming.

    While it is true, Dota , League of Legends, etc is its own genre now... they require a lot of , if not more, strategy than your every day RTS.
