Hmmm... I'm not a very good gamer, though probably more for my lack of patience than my lack of skill, so here's a few I've enjoyed playing all the way through:

Metal Gear Solid (PS, PC)
Final Fantasy VIII (PS, PC)
Resident Evil (PS, SS, PC, GC, DS)
Resident Evil 2 (PS, PC, N64, DC, GC)

I know they're all 5th/6th gen, but I'd still class them as quality retro games.

If we're talking slightly more update...then:

Crash Bandicoot Series

Spyro series (before it went crap on PS2)

Pretty much every single RPG ever made...they just take patience ;)

On a Simpsons DVD commentary even Matt Groening said he found the Crash Bandicoot games simple enough. The Simpsons episode he was commenting on had a parody called Dash Dingo or something.

I'll go by the ones which can be completed in just under an hour or much less than that.

Outrun 2006 - PC, Arcade. Never played the PS2 or Xbox versions but most likely they are just as easy to complete.

Pacmania - Amiga

Soul Calibur- Dreamcast.

Final Blow - Amiga.

These can be completed over 2-3 days, although can also be done in a day depending how much time you put in that day & length of the game.

Sueprfrog - Amiga.

Power Stone - Dreamcast.

Shenmue - Dreamcast.

Tetris - Gameboy. A couple of hours or so on the hardest level and you've completed the game. Well for me anyway.

The 8 Bit version of Sonic is very easy. The Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade 'action' game (available on most formats) can be finished in about 20 minutes. Kirby's Adventure on the NES is a breeze.

As for more modern stuff, Phantom Hourglass can be knobbled in about 10 hours, which is not a lot by today's standards.

Yep, a good solid hour of gameplay. Fun game, although once you've completed it, it's unlikely you'll play it again.

sounds like a good rental game then. Another good PS2 rental is King Kong, which me and a mate pleasantly flew through in a couple of days. Probably a good 6 hours of gameplay in that one at least and a very enjoyable experience, mildly surprising for a film game.

Fantavision for PS2. Probably about an hour or a bit more. Might have been one of the first PS2 games but it is still playable today.

Most Megadrive games were on the easy side I thought.
