Why ask people to list their favourite games in certain genres and then list an arbitrary Metascores which are based on other peoples opinions? Seems counter-intuitive to me, anyway a quick list off the top of my head:

Action-Adventure: God of War 2018
Action: God of War III
FPS: BioShock
TPS: Gears of War 2
Platformer: LittleBigPlanet 2
Racing: Gran Turismo 4
Arcade Racer: PGR4

Thriller: Alan Wake
ARPG: Mass Effect 2
