The Best Games in Every Category

We have so many of these threads around, so why not try to consolidate them? This ambitious thread is going to try and put them all into one thread! The main post (this post) will be edited with each response to this thread. There will be a list of categories, and the top three vote-getters for that category will be listed along with the number of votes. So for example:

Best ------ Game:
1. Hello (20)
2. Goodbye (16)
3. LOL (2)

With each response to this thread, I hope you could keep this format:
(Category nominated) - Game. So I would say "Best ------ Game - Hello". Since this is a best in the category thread, you should only choose one game from the respective genre. The "Best of" categories are not limited to genres, but they could point out a characteristic, such as "Best Replayability". Keep in mind, you could add categories as well and are not limited by what you see below!

I will nominate a couple myself right now and start the couting right away (my votes are are added in):
