PS1: FFVII
PS2: GTA Vice City
PS3: Uncharted 2
PS4: Bloodborne (maybe God of War)

As far as first party games, I'd go with MGS for PS1 and Ratchet & Clank Up Your Arsenal for PS2

I'm not convinced SONY has a mascot of Mario's magnitude or Microsoft's Halo. Right now it's Kratos, and God of War. Past generations have shown that Playstation consoles are "adult" or "mature" consoles. Looking at PS1 I see Tomb Raider, Crash etc. PS2, I see great exclusives like SLY, Jak and Socom. PS3 assembled many great exclusives, Uncharted 1-3 come to mind, great thread OP.

PS3: Nothing comes to mind at first, which is kind of telling, because I hated the PS3. And then I thought of some random niche games on there like Tales of Xillia, and thought... wow, that's kind of a dismal way to remember the system. So, Tales of Xillia.
PS4: Bloodborne

PS3: a lot, infamous, ratchet and clank, resistance. nothing stands out by itself here too many there were many fantastic exclusive franchises with multiple great games.
