I don't really have an order, but I'll just list some games that I like, cause I haven't seen most of them here. FYI, I play a lot of NES and SNES:
Secret of Mana Super Mario RPG Chrono Trigger TMNT (first one for NES) Wizards and Warriors Megaman 2, 3, 4 (The other 3 NES ones were great too, but those 3 in particular) Contra Contra III: Alien Wars Wonder Boy in Monster World Final Fantasy Tactics (Seems everyone loved this game...) Paper Mario

In no particular order:
Metroid Prime 2: Best FPS since Perfect Dark Culdcept: ... ... ... ... yeah. Final Fantasy VII: Drool Final Fantasy VIII: See above. Tales of Symphonia: Nearly the best RPG i've ever played. Skies of Arcadia: Great game, really origonal concept. Final Fantasy: Yeah. The GREATEST!!!!!! Pikmin 2: Call me crazy, but I love real time strategy, and Pikmin 2 is the best of the best. Bomberman 64: That is the best multiplayer game ever. LOZ: Ocarina of Time: Drool again.
So as you can see, there are countless reasons to own a Gamecube, but PS2 is simply for Culdcept and Final Fantasy, nothing more.
Been a while since anyone posted on this, but everyone had some interesting choices! Here are mine:
Culdcept-My favorite game on this system even after 2 years! ( I even have the soundtrack)
God of War-Almost perfect, would be great multiplayer.
Twisted Metal Black-Worthy sequal to part 2, FINALLY!
Suikoden 1 & 2- Excellent strategy to put your teams together and whip some butt. All with 108 characters to find throughout the game.
The Unholy War-One of the best 2 player fighting games that no one knows about.
Zelda (SNES)-This game was so tight that I have 3 copies in case something breaks or gets lost.
Kingdom Hearts-If you had told me a year before this game came out that I would be hooked on a game with Donald Duck or Goofy, i would have told you where to go! This was a great surprise no one saw coming!!
Street Fighter series-This game speaks for itself, with the exception of the first game.
Daytona USA (arcade)-This is by far the most fun 8 player driving game ever. Never again has any company come close to the excitement or frustration this game caused!
Dragon Force (Saturn)-Another game not too well known, but just look on ebay for the rarity.
I hope not all my games sound too weird, but to each his own right?
Culcedpt Darkcloud Grand theft auto: 3 Grand theft auto: vice city Grand theft auto: san andreas Everquest online adventures God of war Intelligent cube (ps1 game very addictive) Donkey konga (multiplayer with my friends only those drums are fun) Shade (it’s a multiplayer online rpg on cell phones most carriers have sadly some don’t very cool though, heres a link to the forum good info to see if you cell is supported highly recommend and if you drop in send me a pm ill see what I can do to help same screen name there ;-D)
Chrono Trigger~ What can be said about Chrono Trigger that hasn't been said a million times before? Best game ever made, hands down.
Shining Force 2~ Strategy RPG with a so-so storyline, but an extremely fun battle system. I also loved the art to it.
Final Fantasy Tactics~ Another strategy RPG, one which I'm sure many of you have played. I loved the character growth system, the music, and especially the story, which I felt was more mature than the stories of any of the other Final Fantasies.
Fatal Frame 2~ Scariest game ever made? Probably. Beautiful graphics, haunting storyline, and one of the most re-playable games I've ever played. I have loved this game from the moment I bought it.
Heroes of Might and Magic 3~ The only PC game up here (not including MMORPGS). I've been playing the HOMM series since the second one (although later on I acquired the first one as well) and have all of them, including 5, but 3 will always stand out as the brightest spot in the Heroes series for me.
Dofus~ I don't play this anymore, although I could get back into it any time. An amazing tactical MMORPG, the only one on the net actually. Charming graphics, lovely music, and a very low cost (unlimited free play in one [large] area, and only $7 a month if you want to explore the rest of the world).
Final Fantasy 6~ The finest Final Fantasy of the main series. It's hard for me to quantify what it really is that I like so much about this game, but even if it had no redeeming qualities other than pure nostalgia, this would be one of my favorite games of all time.
Secret of Mana~ I remember having this game as a little girl, and it being the first RPG I played where you couldn't save anywhere you want (Mystic Quest ring any bells? lol). I love the graphics, the story, the characters, the battle system, and most of all, the multiplayer aspect. I still play Secret of Mana to this very day.
Donkey Kong Country 2~ There is no denying the DKC series for SNES was something special. The second was my favorite, though; I felt Dixie was a charming addition, and I loved the whole mood/theme of this one. Pure fun. (:
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars~ What an awesome game! Its graphics were beyond the pale for its time, it is accessible for anyone of any age, and, duh, MARIO. There is literally nothing to dislike about this game.
if you're born a lion don't bother trying to act tame
Gabriel Knight series - Jane Jensen rocked my PC world.
Guilty Gear series - Unfortunately, I'm not very good. I was decent in the orignal, but I tend to only play the X series in versus mode.
Grand Theft Auto series - I've loved it since the first game, but I never bothered to do the missions until Vice City.
Ico - If I were to say that I played it for the graphics and adventure, I'd probably be lying. I probably like it because it's romantic. (I don't feel the same way about the corpse and the horse in Shadow of the Colossus.)
Pitball - This game is low on tech but high on cooperative fun. It looked horrible even in its day and I still play it now.
Soul Edge/Blade/Calibur series - I would like the series to change again before going to the next generation, but the past two have been fun. I might still prefer the mechanics of Blade/Edge.
Tech Romancer - It's a goofy giant robot fighting game made by Capcom with anime infuences. Yum.
Tomba series - For me, this series had the best platform games ever made.
Xenogears - I'm not usually an RPG fan, but this one was done well.
I've played many games over my time on many systems and my preference lies in Fantasy-based strategy games and RPGs or a combination of the two.
Favorite Games in Order of preference
Age of Wonders series (PC) I believe the series is better then Heroes of Might and Magic...although I enjoy both. I feel that AOW is updated version of Master of Magic.
Culdcept series (PS1, PS2) I have 3 copies to support company. I love it and have been playing it even to this day.
Never Winter Nights (PC) Best D&D product out there using 3rd edition rules. The ability to create your own stuff was the icing to the cake.
Master of Magic (PC) At its time is had great graphics and so much to do. A great game and still playable today after all patches are installed.
Master of Monsters (Sega Genesis) My favorite Sega game by far, too bad the PS1 game paled in comparison.
Total Annihilation: Kingdom (PC) Best fantasy based real time strategy game by far I feel...with the ability for us to create new units...which we all did or modify existing units. Great after patches that is not too mention I could control the speed so it can resemble turn based.
Icewind Dale series(PC) I preferred this over Baldur's gate only because I could create a party of my choosing.
Final Fantasy Tactics (PS1, GBA) Love the job skills...we all know about this game.
Buldur's Gate series (PC) A classic. I liked it even more with user created content.
Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance (PS1) Liked the feel of this real-time RPG and it is in my favorite setting.
Ogre Battle (SNES) Loved the hidden classes and the concept of this game....always had a Lich.
Street Fighter Turbo (Sega Genesis) Spend way too many hours in this fighting game.
Tactics Ogre (GBA) Crazy as it may sound, I liked this game almost as much as FFT.
Brigandine (PS1) Glad I purchased this...it is very similar to Master of Monsters in many ways with some key differences as well. Great buy.
Fantasy General (PC) I like fantasy and I like war games related to fantasy...this was one of the one I am fond of as well.
Dune (Sega Genesis) Only real time strategy game that I liked. Also love the dune setting.
Shining Force (Sega Genesis) Aside from FF, Shining Force was another favorite rpg.
Magic the Gathering and expansion (original PC game after patches) This game allowed me to olay against other creature decks in the same fashion as the original game without the need to be online and spend money...I hate spending money to play online.
Front Mission (SNES) Love the mech part of this game a rarity for me...I played the Japanese version which had much English to the abilities and was relatively easy to figure out.
Gauntlet (Sega Genesis) Guantlet was great, for some reason, I like the RPG element to this version.
Makai Kingdom and Disgaea (although a bit too much leveling up for my taste) (PS2) Graphics are nice, stories are funny and the type of game that I love. But honestly, I don't like leveling up so much...why can't they have fewer levels with the same abilities...after all, there is no real ability gain in many of the levels. If this game used the template of FFT, I would be soooo hooked.
Diablo clone whose name I forgot (PS1) Diable on PC is better don't get me wrong, I just like playing this clone published by a French company on the console.
I think I'm going to have to modify my list to add in Advance Wars (the first one) for the GBA. I've been sitting in a lot waiting rooms recently pounding the hell out of that little cartrage. I've played through the campain mode a couple dozen times (i'm Getting S rank with all maps and all characters, at the moment), unlocked everything, and gained the Golden Dragon Rank. Much like culdcept, it's a game i keep coming back to and enjoying.
