Yes, top (insert # here) lists are cheesy and overused, but they are fun. For the upcoming launch of a website, HSG and I are trying to put together top 10 lists. If you think we are missing genres, let us know. After you weigh in, I will add my favorite nominations in each genre.
The genres are: Best graphics Best RPG Best 2D platformer Best 3D gameplay Best storyline Best puzzle game Best arcade-style game Best port Best music Best shooter Best first-person shooter Best sports game Best adventure game
