Well actually the above listed are not necessarily the ones that would be the best movies - if we really think into it, even Quake, Wolfenstein, Dark Seed, and like tons of other games could be movies. I just listed the ones that I remembered.

@Darth_Helmet86 & Scatty: What about Beneath a Steel Sky then? I just have no idea why I forgot to add that to the list instead of something else. And that fits into the Cyberpunk theme. Well, in my opinion.

I think Quest for Glory 4 would make an enjoyable movie.

Well taking it at that, I think Quarantine would make a great action-packed fast paced movie without need for deep story or much thinking. With all that violence and dark setting in the game, it would be perfect for today's violence-hungry, shock-proof audiences. There has been a movie of similar concept made already after all - Death Race, and not bad at that.

Scatty that movie is actually a remake/reboot/stolen idea of Death Race 2000 which later ended up being a movie that the people who made Carmageddon loved.

Death Gate and Loom looks like most "cinematographic" games here for me. SO I choose first. Others are too heavy text-related. But I would vote for something more action and less text-heavy. System Shock, for example. Or Alone in the Dark (yes, I know . Or, maybe, BioForge. Even DarkSeed and Ultima looks better than this games in terms of "possible movie", I think!

Sam & Max would we cool. But my vote goes to Another World (possibly incorporating Heart of the Alien).

Full Throttle and Sam&Max are practicly animation movies already, so I wouldn't give my vote to them.
It goes to Monkey Island, it would need a strong (in a funny sense) leading actor and it would most certainly be better than Pirates from Caribbean movies.

These are all adventures, next time we should make a poll with the same question about non adventures. I was thinking about X-COM, Star Control, The Elder Scrolls, Gateway (adventures)... And yes, Flashback of course.

About these, I think I'm going to say Monkey Island. I haven't played many of these. I don't see Loom as a movie. I would love another Indiana Jones movie if it was good of course, and I liked the game (not as much as the Last Crusade), but Atlantis is more pulp compared to the Christian mythology in the Last Crusade and the Lost Ark, and the plot of the game is a bit like a Dan Brown novel--much like the last Indiana movie was a bit like an Erich von Dniken book.
