I love lists!

1> Atari ST - IK+
2> XBox 360 - Space Giraffe
3> Acorn Electron - Plan B
4> Amstrad CPC - Barry McGuigan's Boxing
5> Dreamcast - Rez

Though this all changes with my socks (except the ST is always no. 1).

Basically, the ones I grew up with:

1. ZX Spectrum
Best game: Lords Of Midnight

2. Atari ST
Best game: Carrier Command

3. Amstrad CPC
Best game: Head Over Heels

4. BBC Micro
Best game: Elite

Best game: Black Crystal

I don't think I'll bother with worst games; memory tends to fade away the truly bad ones anyway.

Sega Saturn - Panzer Dragoon Saga, Burning Rangers
PS3 - Pain, Everybody's Golf, free stuff every Thursday!
ZX Spectrum - Chuckie Egg, Urban Upstart, The Hobbit
ZX81 - Murgatroyds Revenge, listings from Sinclair User magazine :)
Playstation 2 - Katamari Damacy (this is the ONLY game I like on the PS2, but it's great enough to elevate it to my top 5, although it WILL play Ridge 4 with the Jogcon unlike the PS3)
