There's not really one special title that comes to mind when thinking of the rest. Probably as I didn't play the major hitters like GTA on PS2 etc. I don't associate them with one game.

Yeah the Switch is like this for me.

I played Breath of the Wild on Wii U, so while I enjoyed a great many games on Switch, there is no one game that jumps out as emblematic of the console in my mind.

NES- super mario bros. 3
SNES - super Mario world
Genesis - Sonic the hedgehog
PS - Final Fantasy VII
N64 - Zelda:OoT
Saturn- ???
Dreamcast - Shenmue
PS2- GTA:San Andreas.
Game Cube- smash:melee
Xbox: Halo
Xbox 360: Halo 3
PS3: Uncharted 2
Wii: Wii sports
WiiU: Zelda:BoTW
PS4: GoW (2018)
Xbox one: Forza Horizon3
Switch: Zelda:BoTW

Every single Nintendo handheld not named Switch: Pokemon (insert version name here)

NES: Super Mario Bros.

Super NES: Donkey Kong Country

Nintendo 64: Banjo-Kazooie

Nintendo GameCube: Super Smash Bros. Melee

Wii: Wii Sports

Wii U: Splatoon

Nintendo Switch: The Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild

If I had to do them, I guess I'd go with Killzone Shadowfall for PS4 and Ryse Son of Rome for the Xbox One, probably as they were the first big "next gen" exclusives on them. Or maybe Horizon Zero Dawn for PS4 and Halo 5 for Xbone.

Nothing on PS5 or Xbox Series really stands out yet.

CDI: Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon

NES- The Legend of Zelda

There’s lots of games on the system but this one had the most impact over all.

N64- Mario 64

Dreamcast- Soul Caliber

Xbox- Halo

For me, all the other systems didn’t have one game that became as synonymous with their system as these did. There were usually multiple games that did that. Also these were my primary systems.

GameCube: Legend of Zelda Windwaker

PS3: The last of us
PS4: Horizon Zero Dawn
Wii U/Switch: Breath of the Wild
PS5: God of War Ragnarok so far

Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Halo: CE for the original Xbox is the obvious top seed. Anyone that thinks differently is just plain wrong.
