1. Persona 3
1. Goldeneye 64. Played it the other day. Still lots of fun, fuck the haters. I'm pretty lame at it now-a-days, but it's still a great game. Cougar magnum ftw. followed by glorious pencil gun.
2. Company of Heroes. I'm a garbage RTS player, but still love the story/history and gameplay.
3. Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time
4. Battlefield 2. Bought it again on steam not that long ago. Still play. Amazing.
Honorable mentions: Portal, Super Mario 64, Pokemon Crystal, Dota 2, The Sims (collection), Civ (collection), Mario Party 1 thru 3, San Andreas/Vice City, TF2, Minecraft.

3. Toss up Between CS 1.6 and Diablo II
I almost feel like I have to break it down into games of the past that ultimately don't hold up today, and the games that have taken their place in my heart for their excellence with the advantage of hindsight.
Years ago, I'd have easily had Baldur's Gate 2 and Half-Life on there. However, their sequels/spiritual successors are better designed and more fun to play in a modern gaming era, so there's a pretty big battle between nostalgia and the technical accomplishment at the time, against the just plain better games with the advantage of hindsight.
If I can put a visual novel on this list, the last item would be Remember11: The Age of Infinity.
This is hard. I can't even pick 3 games that are representative of all the genres I like to play, but here are some of the games that I keep coming back to, in no particular order.
Super Mario Brothers 3
Rock Band Series (though it could count as Rock Band 3 due to the accumulative nature of the music library, we only ever play the latest numbered release)
Picking three games I love is really hard so I'll just pick the first three that come to mind.
