Left 4 Dead (The first one. Not the awful second one) is the highlight of multiplayer on my xBox 360 - One of the only full titles I got all the achievements for.

I don't really have a set favorite, but my list would be pretty much as follows:
Halo 3
The Unfinished Swan
Tales of Vesperia
Mass Effect 2

This is hard.

I'd have to say Asura's Wrath and Persona 4 Golden. Both are games I spent a huge amount of time with. Moreso with Persona 4. I think I've gone through the game four or five times now.

Honorable mention to Catherine and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Catherine made me think about relationships differently, and UMvC3 because I'm a sucker for fighting games and it's one that I spent a considerable amount of time with.

On console, the game that I just could not wait to play and I just could not stop playing is Ninja Gaiden II (Xbox 360) / Ninja Gaiden Σ2 (PS3). Hundreds upon hundreds of hours have been logged in my pursuit to get 100% completion on both versions and even after I still continued to play the mission modes.

Honorable mentions: Tales of Vesperia, Far Cry 2, Borderlands 2, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Mass Effect 1 and 2, Gears of War 1 and 2, Bayonetta, Vanquish, and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition

On hand held systems, I'd go with Persona 4 Golden, Pokemon X / Y, and Bravely Default (techincally "current" gen since there are no successors to the PS Vita and 3DS, but anyway.....)

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.

If you asked best, I'd probably say "The Last of Us" or "Uncharted". But, Ni no Kuni, the flawed game that it is, holds a very special and important place in my heart for one very important reason.

It was the return of the JRPG to home consoles.

Until fairly recently, JRPG's were very, very, VERY hard to come by on the PS3. Literally, all you had was FFXIII and various NISA games, and they really aren't "traditional JRPG's" in a certain sense (XIII did away with a lot of JRPG conventions like maps and exploration, while most NISA properties were more SRPG in nature, and/or were too niche to appeal to me). Not that the West seemed to want or need JRPG's: you have Western fans openly mocking JRPG's for their tropes, seen in unbelievably negative light, and you have Western developers, like former Bioware developer Greg Zeschuk, mocking them for "lack of evolution" because they follow convention.

And then came Level-5 with Ni no Kuni, defiantly releasing a JRPG that plays like every JRPG before it. It had world maps, towns, subquests, and its story is a quest to defeat an evil. It followed every single convention to the letter that everyone called it a love letter to 16-bit JRPG's. And it was wonderful.

They say you don't know what you got 'til it's gone. When I played Ni no Kuni, it offered me a sense of adventure, wonder, and warmth that could only be granted by immersing yourself in a colorful world and a grand adventure. It didn't have any complex combos, or styles, or a dark and edgy routine, or video card-melting 1080p graphics at 60fps. But what it had in its simplicity is a simply good JRPG, and in that simplicity, I saw true beauty. It was the reason I kept playing for more than 200 hours on the game, while I drop a lot of titles as soon as I finished them (and it helped that a lot of games were done in 6 hours or less).

Bioshock for sure.

Not only was it fun, but the story was great. Sadly, it's pretty rare to see games with as good as a story as Bioshock these days.

I can't pick one, because all three go together, but...

...Mass Effect Trilogy.
