Microsoft should have put out more Sunset Overdrive bundles than the Assassin's Creed Unity bundles.

I used to play a lot strategy games, too (turn based and real-time), but don't have the time for investment anymore
I don't believe you'll go wrong with any of these, but I voted Dragon Age because that's the franchise I've logged the most hours in. I prefer the Saints Row games over GTA usually and the Far Cry series has been up and down over the years. I should add that I spent the most time with these franchises on the PC where modding is one of the attractions. Console mileage may vary.
I'm going to second The Wings of Honnêamise, Irrisponsible Captain Tylor, anything Macross, City Hunter, Black Magic M-66 and Bubblegum Crisis (OVA series - BGC 2040).
I am going to add the following:
Blue Seed (I saw this promo'd so many times when NGE first came out on VHS). Good alien invasion yarn, mystical girl, demon boy, etc...
Hyper Police - Action comedy that takes an unusual turn for this typical genre.
Magic Knight Rayearth - a magical girl series with giant robots. The second season is where it shines.
The Slayers (series 1 to 4) - the adventures of spellcaster Lina Inverse and swordsman Gourry Gabriev. Often very funny.
Maison Ikkoku - One of my all time favorite rom-coms, long and at times frustrating, but oh so satisfying at the end.
You're Under Arrest - A police action comedy about two female cops. Good stuff.
Project A-Ko - a fun crazy movie about a supergirl and a gadget girl at high school, oh an there may be spys and aliens and stuff.
Bacon double cheeseburgers for breakfast, Bavarian cream-filled doughnuts for brunch, nachos supreme for lunch, chocolate cheesecake for snack time, taco pizza for dinner, and deep fried cheese for a late night snack. But, you know I'd add some fruit in there, too. Screwdrivers count as fruit, don't they?
All of my "immediately comes to mind" answers have been said (KOTOR, DQ VIII, FF12) with the exception of Burnout III Takedown, my favorite arcade racer ever. An HD remake with current gen graphics and an audio overhaul would benefit this classic.
For TV and movies, sci-fi. For gaming, fantasy. There's really no use for a sword in a world where everyone is packin' heat, but I like swords and battleaxes, etc... Bows are awesome, too but a machine gun is usually more effective. A setting where the technology of war isn't so instantly lethal is more appealing to me in gaming.
Also, I like bikini chain mail.
