As Bahamut suggested, I'll just explain my list.

IMO the best that 3D platformers have to offer. Colorful characters, wacky stages and bosses, and hilarious all the way through. To be quite honest the two can be interchanged on my list; I like the first two games so much.
3. Team Fortress 2
I never spent so much time on an online shooter before. TF2's very fun on the normal levels, but the custom modded levels/modes always puts a smile on my face. There was one server where I played a Pac-Man stage, and I've never had so much fun on multiplayer in my life.
4. Halo: Combat Evolved
Another fun title, I picked this one because of its multiplayer. I played the PC version's online mode a lot and I've always had a blast. It reminds me of the Quake games in which you start out with two weapons and had to know where the other weapons are on the map. The campaign is interesting as well, but the multiplayer always interested me. Also the mods are pretty cool. Ocarina of Time in my Halo? YES PLEASE.
Simple, fast, and full of replay value with user-made levels. Need I say more?
6. Metroid Prime
I'll tell you, there's only a few games in which I actually felt immersed. Metroid Prime's one of them. The entire atmosphere of the game is amazing and you get that feeling of loneliness and haunting between the baron lands, old corridors, and the music. Oh God that music. In short, it blends together an experience that actually does suck me in.
7. Super Mario Galaxy
I'm a fan of platformers, as you can tell. Mario platformers are always a treat for me, but Super Mario Galaxy takes the cake for my favorite Mario game. The level designs and concepts in the game are very well-done, and the graphics put any other Wii game to shame. Plus the orchestrated music in the game adds to the overall experience. An orchestra in a Mario game, now that's a treat in its own right IMO.
8. Dragon Ball Z Budokai
I will keep whoring out this game until the end of time. Call me a weeaboo if you want, I still say that DBZ: Budokai has the best storytelling of any of the other DBZ games. Plus the fighting mechanics were awesome and fast-paced and definitely improved with the other Budokai games. But the first one always gets my attention due to the fun story mode, mainly because no other DBZ game has YET to come close to the experience.
9. Batman: Arkham Asylum
I like DC. I like Batman. Naturally a Batman game would interest me. And I loved this game ever since I played the demo. Arkham Asylum really gives you the feeling that you're Batman, beating up foes in the same way the Dark Knight would in the shows and movies with slick combat and stealth. As a kid who used to watch Batman: The Animated Series religiously, a game like this is an absolute godsend.
10. Sonic Heroes
I've seen a lot of love/hate for Sonic Heroes, and in this case it's one of my favorite Sonic games. I dunno if it's just me being a dumb kid and nostalgia just hitting me in the face or what, but I enjoyed Sonic Heroes. The atmosphere really reminds me of the older Sonic games, what with the checkered-patterns on the rocks in Seaside Hill or the round, bright-colored enemies. It's a fun game, IMO, and it's one of my favorite Sonic games.
