It can be used in other contexts besides refering to something that you like the best (such as when you identify the best sports team, movie of the year, etc). It can be used to refer to the number one thing of anything.
I think that daisuke would be like saying you like something very much, more than just a normal 'liking' (suki desu).
It's no "daisuke" but "daisuki", daisuke is a name, but you are right on the meaning you wanted to say ;)
