    Saw a thread for personal Top 10 Sega Genesis games on another site, and it was really hard to come up with a list. It got me thinking of top 10s for other consoles, so I thought I'd ask here.
    Here's what I've come up with so far:

    Personal Top 10 Sega Genesis games (in no particular order):
    Streets of Rage 2
    Batman
    Strider
    Shinobi 3
    Revenge of Shinobi
    Shadow Dancer
    Midnight Resistance
    Sonic 2
    Golden Axe 2
    TMNT Hyperstone Heist
    HM: Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, Sonic 1

    Personal Top 10 NES games (in no particular order):
    Batman
    Castlevania 3
    Contra
    Double Dragon 2
    Gremlins 2
    Mega Man 2
    Mega Man 5
    Ninja Gaiden 2
    Shatterhand
    Vice Project Doom
    HM: Blaster Master, Jackal, Journey to Silius, Super C, TMNT 3, Shadow of the Ninja
    (Not surprisingly, most of these are by either Konami, Capcom, Sunsoft, or Natsume, 4 of the best developers for the NES. Shatterhand was published by Jaleco, but developed by Natsume)

    Great thread! I’ll have a lot of lists to add here, but here’s my NES list just to start:

    In no particular order:
    - Megaman 2
    - Castlevania
    - Castlevania 2
    - Castlevania 3
    - Super Mario Bros. 3
    - The Legend of Zelda
    - Duck Tales
    - Megaman 1
    - Super Mario Bros.
    - Megaman 3

    Seeing how my choices are pretty much common & some of the most popular, most well known games, I went & dug up a few top 100 NES lists to see if maybe there were some games I was forgetting. Nope. These games just really are my favorites. There’s a reason these were the biggest hits of the NES era. Maybe that means I’m on the bandwagon, but I like what I like. Lots of honorable mentions though:

    Honorables: Zelda 2, Mario 2, all the other Megamans, TMNT the Arcade Game, Shadowgate, Dragon Warrior, Contra, Super C, Gremlins 2, and PacMania

    This is completely subjective, but for me, my top 10 NES games in no particular order are:

    Metroid - Spent weeks playing this game to completion; getting all the missiles, energy tanks and playing in one session without dying to reveal that Samus was a female at the end.
    Megaman
    Pro Wrestling - My friends and I spent HOURS kicking the crap out of each other.
    Ghosts & Goblins - This game was hard as hell and LONG. Took forever to finish.
    Super Mario Bros. - Sadly, this game was easier and a bit watered down from the arcade version.
    Contra
    Mike Tyson's Punch Out
    Castlevania
    Techmo BOwl - Bo Jackson and Ronnie Lott. Nuff said.
    Double Dribble

    The above are games that I fondly remember from my high school days. After school, my friends and I would just hang out, eat pizza and burritos and play video games.

    Considering how few responses it's gotten, apparently you're one of the only ones who thinks so :p 
    But thanks :D 

    Doesn't matter if they're ubiquitous popular choices or multiple games from the same series, if they're your favorites, put 'em on the list.
    Wanna put all 6 NES Mega Man games on, go right ahead :D 

    That's the point :p 
    This isn't meant to be a thread of what are generally considered the best, it's supposed to be a list of what you enjoy the most.

    Which brings me to...
    My personal Top 10 SNES games (in no particular order):

    Final Fantasy III (VI)
    The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    Super Castlevania IV
    Super Metroid
    Super Baseball 2020
    TMNT IV: Turtles In Time
    WWF Royal Rumble
    Actraiser
    Axelay
    Super Double Dragon

    HM: Chrono Trigger, Contra 3, Final Fantasy II (IV), Mega Man 7, Starfox, Donkey Kong Country, Mortal Kombat 2, Super Street Fighter II, NBA Jam Tournament Edition
    A lot of HMs because SNES might be my favorite console ever.

    My all-time top 10 games on any platform (since so many games are now available on multiple platforms' via download anyway), trying as much as possible (but failing) to limit my choices to one game per genre:

    1. Fatal Fury Special (Neo Geo)

    2. Mario Bros. (Atari something or other "computer" version) My friends and I played this as a vs. combat game in the days before fighting games existed -- try to push or bounce the other player into turtles, crabs, moths, and fireballs, rather than trying to kill the animals/insects. So many all-nighters. So many noise complaints from neighbors.

    3. Silent Hill 2 (PS2)

    4. Jet Set Radio (Dreamcast)

    5. Metal Gear Solid 2 (PS2)

    6. God Hand (PS2)

    7. Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)

    8. Double Dragon Advance (GBA)

    9. Bionic Commando (NES)

    10. Super Castlevania IV (SNES)


    edit: Oh crap, I forgot Arkham City. What can I remove from my list?

    Second list -- Top 10 Neo Geo games:

    1. Fatal Fury Special

    2. Real Bout Fatal Fury 2

    3. King of Fighters 2002

    4. Samurai Shodown 3 (yes, I know "Showdown" is misspelled, but it's not my misspelling)

    5. Fatal Fury 3

    6. Art of Fighting 3

    7. Samurai Shodown 5

    8. World Heroes 2

    9. World Heroes Perfect

    10. Metal Slug 2
