This is a tad bit easier than the top 50 topic a year or so ago for me to compile. RPGs and platformers tend to be the dominant genre for console faves, which does not surprise me. Here is my list:

Mega Drive - Sonic 3 and Knuckles
SNES - Chrono Trigger
Game Boy - Pokemon Red
N64 - Banjo-Kazooie
Dreamcast - Rez
PS2 - We Love Katamari
Gamecube - Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
Game Boy Advance - Mother 3
Wii - Super Mario Galaxy 2
PS3 - Portal 2
XBox 360 - Splosion Man
DS - Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective
3DS - Kirby: Planet Robobot
Wii U - Mario Kart 8
PS4 - Nier Automata

PS4 was by far the toughest console to do for this list. While I love a wide variety of titles for most of the machines listed, I can say my favourite on each one with confidence. With the PS4 though, it has had some of my most beloved titles that have truly deepened my love for the art form that I had to really think hard on which title to put up there but yeah, Automata is a bonafide top 10 title for me so felt dirty not to put it as my favourite for the console.

Handheld - Grandstand Mini Munchman
VIC-20 - The Perils of Willy

I’m throwing in the Shaolin’s Road arcade machine too as I probably spent enough on that to own it!
