This is a bit of a tough one for me, so I'm going to "break" the rules a bit and try to name 3 of each category.
1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
2. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
3. Golden Eye 007
I liked many more of them, including the early classics like Pacman and others, but these three come to mind. I probably like them the most because they are very involved and take a long time to master.
I know how to play most card games and I'm pretty good at many of them, but these three are my favorites because they involve bidding, trump suits, and take a long time to get really good at.
I've never liked board games all that much because I've never been able to stay focused on them for very long. Chess involves a lot of thinking, but I can't stand it when the other person thinks for very long.
