With stories that suck you in and won't let go, and memorable characters that you really get to care for, I just love adventure games!
Some of my favourite games are Maniac Mansion (one of the first where you could play as more than one character, and switch between them at will), Gabriel Knight series & Phantasmogoria series (just plain scary), Tex Murphy games (a detective who solves cases by luck, more than anything else), The Longest Journey (a beautiful story about 2 worlds), and Monkey Island (with a name like Guybrush Threepwood, who could fail to love him?).
Going on to freeware, games like Barn Runner (c'mon Ponch, give us another Barn Runner game, ), Ben Jordan, Cosmos Quest, Conspiracy Of Songo, and many other point & click adventures.
There is also a lot of good puzzle games like Brainstorm (I first played this on the Spectrum so many years agao), Tetris (a classic!), Pandora's Box (from the maker of Tetris), Chip's Challenge, Lemmings, Sokoban, and Brick Over Islands, that all give you a good challenge, but also make it fun to play.

but really, they are great.
Also, Frodo, I thought you were going to mention Sanitarium!
