Final Fantasy VII- My first real game I ever played.
Super Mario Brothers- Cliche, yes but I love it.
Portal and Portal 2- Makes you think differently, and is great, even without violence.
Borderlands- Extremely fun to play.
Halo- The original had a nice long campaign with a great story that will never get old in my book.

Here are the 5 games that have occupied the most of my time... I don't know about best though.

Bioshock #1
Super mario world, or bros 3 they kind of tie
Zelda link to the past
Ms pac man (own a cocktail machine)
FFVII

Not sure about best, but they stole a lot of my youth. (And continue to do so today)

Zelda - Link to the Past - SNES Best Zelda game EVER!

Contra - NES

Ghostbusters - Xbox 360/PS3 Not alot of love for it sales wise, but an amazing game. I can't help but smile the entire time playing it. Great story, original cast. Written by Aykroyd and Ramis. What would have been the third movie had it happened.

Transformers: War for Cybertron - Xbox360/PS3/PC - High Moon took this franchise and made it their own and so amazing. Looking forward to Fall of Cybertron.

DOOM - PC - This game took the gaming world and turned it upside down and created the genre that is the FPS. If it where not for this game we wouldn't have alot of the games we play now.

@omnichad: Myst! I should've included that. I want to add more titles. Five is just not enough.

@cowboydan Actually, I'm impressed and jealous you have the table version.

Now that I'm thinking of arcade games, I'd like to add Burgertime and Robotron 2084.

I don't play video games anymore, but when I did(this will date me):

Any King's Quest title
Any Leisure Suit Larry title
Donkey Kong
Qbert
Joust

What is wrong with me, I could not stand Myst?

Tetris absolutely has to make the list. It's been ported to just about every platform out there, from arcade, to Game Boy, even cheap crappy phones. Yet it's an addictive game with excellent re-playability.

All are excellent choices. Based on the current lists the "Top" game would be a Mario Brothers one.
I did the same thing as someone else here. I have games I thought were maybe better. However I dropped them down a notch by hours played.
It's really hard to just do 5!!

This was my original list before I decided on the top 5:

Outrun
Zelda OoT
SMB3
Goldeneye
1080
Borderlands
Counterstrike
Team Fortress (classic)
Metal Slug
APB (arcade version)
Kings Quest
Maniac Mansion
Smash Brothers
Mike Tyson's Punch Out
Soul Calibur
Spy Hunter (original arcade)
Portal
Dragon Quest
TMNT
Golden Axe
Animal Crossings
ms. pacman
Fallout
Luigi's Mansion
Diablo
