Fallout 3 - post apocalypse immensity
Fable 2 - charming and polished
RDR - cowboys.
Super Meat Boy - best ever platformer
PGR 4 - just right between arcade and simulation

1.) The Last of Us - amazing all round
2.) Red Dead Redemption - Amazing open world to explore and only decent western game this generation I believe.
3.) Bioshock 1 - Was amazing to explore rapture for the first time
4.) The Binding of Issac - so much fun to be had when my internet went down.
5.) Uncharted series - Naughty Dog makes everything good

Purely subjective, mind you. And in no particular order.
Portal 2 - suddenly puzzle games are funny, interesting and have a really, really good story.
Minecraft - it's Minecraft. What more do I need to say?
XCOM: Enemy Unknown - X-COM gets revived and Firaxis do an amazing job bringing a notoriously unforgiving turn-based strategy series into the 21st Century.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution - choices, choices, choices. Succeeds at modernising Deus Ex, something most thought they'd fail at, whilst making gamers consider the rise of modern technology and society. Games can sometimes make the people that play them consider the real world. Boss battles a disappointment, but considering how they've tried to sort that out, I'll forgive them a little for that.
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - put it in here just because it's Skyrim. Certain bits are weak, but it's a beautiful game, and scope is, almost literally, epic.

Mass Effect - best new IP, good space RPG genre severely lacking beforehand
Guild Wars 2 - launched brilliantly, included so much 'new' that hadn't been done before
Red Dead Redemption - feature packed, totally different, bloody cougars.
Borderlands - represents the pinnacle of shooter-RPG-lootfests
Dead Space - scariest. game. ever. Fantastic production values.
the trouble with '5' is it doesn't give me room for the other 250.

Demon's Souls- Innovative, terrifying.
Dark Souls- Perfection
Bayonetta- One of the best fighting systems ever, hard but really fun and at the end you punch God in the face.
Mario Galaxy- The sense of wonder and delight I experienced when I first played this was akin to the feeling of playing mario 64 for the first time, its a game full of so much joy and wonder you cant help but smile when you play it it's sooo fun and the levels are gorgeous. Also, the bee suit...
Fallout New Vegas- I have so many cool stories and memories from this game, little adventures and expeditions with my wonderful partner in crime, Craig Boone. And haven't played fallout 3

Fallout: New Vegas - Only game I have completed more than once.
League of Legends - I have plugged probably over 5,000 hours into that game...
XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Great strategy title, really scratched an itch.
FTL - Really fun little game.
Valkyria Chronicles - Despite still not having finished it, I think it deserves a top 5 place.

FTL, the game that made me believe in "indie". Absolutely wonderful.
