Third-person Shooter = MGS 1 (true classic)
Real-time Strategy = Age of Empires 2
2-D Racer = Road Rash (?)
3-D Racer = Burnout 3 (classic)
Third-person Action/Strategy = POP
Puzzle = Solitaire (I mean come on :D)
Platform = Sonic 1 (classic)
Survival Horror = RE1 (originality factor)
2-D Fighter = Marvel Superheroes (a dream come true)
3-D Fighter = Tekken 3

12)Platform - don't understand the genre.....

Stuff like Crash Bandicoot and Rachet and Clank where you're basically running around smiting enemies and collecting stuff. Lighthearted, puzzle-solving usually targeted for kids.
