Side Scroller: Disney's Hercules (PSOne)
Platformer: Crash Banditcoot 3: Warped (PSOne)
Action Adventure: Sypro 2: Gateway to Gilmmer (PSOne)
Action RPG: Kingdom Hearts (PS2)

Let's see what I can remember...

Platformer: Super Mario Bros.
3D Platformer: Super Mario 64
Racing: Final Lap (Old arcades ftw)
RPG: Pokemon
Sports: Baseball (Intellivision!)

At the end of it all, gamers play what we play not for "game over," but rather for what we take away.
