1. Zelda Series (specifically OoT)
2. Resident Evil series (best = RE4, then REmake, 0 and 2 are kinda tied. 5 is not canon it doesn't exist, ok)
3. Suda51 games (is it cheating to put a director instead of a game? I don't care!)
4. Pokemon series
5. Sonic through Sonic & Knuckles.

Only RPG's named are Chrono Trigger, KOTOR2 and Pokemon.

No one has named Metal Gear Solid series.

My personal top 5 would probably be:

1. Jak II/3
2. Final Fantasy X
3. Resident Evil 4
4. Final Fantasy X-2 (don't hate. It might have been a little gay at times but overall the story was good and the gameplay was excellent)
5. Modern Warfare 2 (I've only had it for a couple of days, but goddammit the multiplayer is so damn addictive!)

Honorable mentions:

Pokemon (Blue, Silver, Ruby for me)
Psychonauts
The Matrix: Path of Neo (really fun gameplay, even though the altered ending is retarded)
Tony Hawk's Underground 2

The thing about RPGs is that while the genre has an expansive repertoire of amazing games, for such a small list as a top 5, there aren't going to be many mentions. I could probably do my own list of top 10 rpgs. Also, they're not particularly mainstream, you know? I mean I could complain about the lack of visual novels here, but that would be extremely silly of me.

also the MGS series as a whole is just hella overrated not really that good tbh giant movie with a few elements of gameplay

Also the story was so abysmal, that I like to pretend it's not canon.

I'm enjoying five for the most part apart from two things, which I guess are fairly major. The partner thing is OK, but the AI Sheva in single player (i.e., where it counts) is next to useless. Fine in a standard fire-fight with ordinary zombies, but crap when it counts.

And the other thing is they've made it linear and thrown in arcade style action sequences like the irritating Savana desert bit with the trucks. There's no going backwards and forewards around the whole map retrieving things like there used to be. I've got no problem with the story so far (except maybe that it's a little under-explained), but I'm only on chapter 3 (I got the game on the PC for Christmas).

I guess I'm not surprised but I'm sad at the lack of love for sports games. I've been playing EA Sports titles since I got NBA Live 99 and Madden 99 for Christmas one year.

Yeah, I guess it's not really a bad game in it's own way. But as a Resident Evil game, I was really disappointed with it. I agree about the AI for Sheva being horrible... I dislike the co-op nature of the game. Resident Evil titles were always about spending most of your time alone in a monster-infested area, with limited ammo and health. Resident Evil 5 is basically the opposite of this. Except for the monster-infested part because there are a lot of enemies.
