Best point and click: Day of the tentacle, sorry monkey island fans, close runner up, the simon the sorcerer series.
Best RPG: Planescape torment, goddamn I need a copy, used to borrow it off a mate. Runners up: system shock 2, Knights of the Old Republic, Pokemon: Blue (we all know blue was better than red)
Best stealth: Thief 2 the metal age, I love metal gear solid, but seriously, thief shits on it from and unbearable height.
