Actually this is kind of interesting. It forces you to pick 1 game above every other good game released for a console. So the list I'll write down is pretty much made the first "best" game I thought of on each console.

PSX: Tekken 3
PS2: Guitar Hero
DC: Soul Calibur
SNES: Chrono Trigger
GBA: Advance Wars
Gameboy: Tetris :)
PCE: Aero Blasters

Funny thing...
I seem to have hardest time finding a "best" for Genesis and Xbox.
Genesis because I really enjoy far to many genesis-titles to instantly pick one. It's the most emulated console on my GP32.
X-box since the games for it (that I play) are multi-platform titles anyway... I do play it a lot.

... Thank god I don't have to pick for Amiga and C64 since they are not consoles :p
I most likely couldn't.

EDIT:
Ravnos just helped me with the Xbox game :)

X-box: Knights of the Old Republic

I completely forgot that was a X-box exclusive an that does stand above all other X-box games for me (multiplatform or not). Allthogh the mechanics were improved in KOTOR2, the story wasn't quite as interesting.... and the ending was messy.

Hooray for that man! The PC (while not a console) has the finest array of games.
However, I don't feel inclined to pick a single one right now (a little drunk).

From my recent gamings: Beyond Good and Evil, HL2, HL2:Ep1, HL2:Minerva, FEAR, Fahrenheit

If you like playing with bongo drum, DK Jungle Beat is an awesome game. Especially the boss battle that totally reminds of PunchOut was the best recreation of PunchOut since PunchOut and totally satisfying.
