Don't have a Top 10, just a toobular 7 ;)

Platformer - (Mario, Mega Man)
Action/Adventure - (Zelda, Metroid)
Survival Horror - (Resident Evil)
Puzzle/Adventure - (Zack & Wiki)
First Person Adventure - (Metroid Prime)
Arcade - (Donkey Kong, Space Harrier)
Fighter - (Super Smash Bros. & Street fighter)

I absolutely love being confined to small areas in a game while having to solve puzzles, find keys, save ammo like they're diamonds,
doing lots of back tracking, battleing the undead-...Yeah, kind of sounds like the traditional RE series. :P

There's nothing more satisfying than FINALLY finding a key later on in the game that unlocks that ruby diamond red door during one of the beginning portions of the game you're playing hehe.

Ah, yes. Arcade sports, a part of the silver age of arcade games. Those are cool too.

There's a couple of genres where I like one or two examples of the genre more than almost anything from my top 10 list (such as Love Plus for dating sims), but I don't like the genre as a whole.

To me, an arcade racer is Cruis'n or Super Off Road. The Mario Kart series is a cartoony racing game.
