Remember if the game you want isn't in the list give us a shout in a post about what game you would most like to see as a movie, but still vote for one of these beauties as well. And don't forget to tell us about why and what you would most like to see in the movie.

I am torn with this one, Full Throttle and Quest for Glory would be some awesome movies to me. But Full Throttle with its more dystopian future world pulls just ahead and gets my vote. Watching Ben save the day and roar around on his bike would be perfect in action and comedy to me.

I guess Full Throttle is almost the only one which qualifies for a good movie adaptation, IMO, so I vote for it. That is, if it's not about some animated movies or a fairy tale.
However the actual game I would love to see being made into movie is Fallout 1. I know, there've been a lot post-apocalyptic movies around all the time, but with exception of The Book of Eli I couldn't find one that would come even close to the unique mood that is (was) created in the first Fallout. Made to resemble the original story close enough along the original lines, while leaving freedom for creating own twists, made with love for, and thorough knowledge of what is created, I'm sure the movie could score at least a good hit.

Have you ever watched Mad Max, or Mad Max 2 Road Warrior at all Scatty? Also I seem to recall there actually was an attempt at making a Fallout movie at one point that bombed. The problem I see is that the games are just too long to cram into one movie, a TV series on the other hand...that could be the best thing ever.

Of course I saw all the three Mad Max movies, that's certainly a classic. I saw as much of post-apocalyptic movies as I could find out about, even some more obscure ones from the 80s, so I know most of them I think. The Mad Max movies, IMO, actually resemble Fallout mood even less than Book of Eli, and that latter one reminded me of the game again and again while watching it.

Actually, I can't decide - that's why I intended to make this poll. I'd like to see all of these, for example, Eric the Unready by Monthy Python or Sam and Max as a cartoon, but the one that could be still possible is Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis - looking at the last movie, they should have did this one instead. Some people say it's story is even better than the original trilogy. I can only agree on those statements, and the busty chick with Indy is still the sexiest girl in videogames in her VGA palette pixel art glory.

I find Mad Max 2 gets the closest to a Fallout style movie. Though with a Pure neutral hero since Max is still a broken man for most of that movie and only gets better by the end (one of the things I love most about 1 and 2 is how the first movie breaks him and the 2nd brings him back to who he was...3....well best watched drunk).

I have seen a a lot of PA movies, need to go to the video stores and rent some more. I used to have on on VHS which was a documentary on special effects in movies, which was based around a fake PA movie and the effects that would be in it. Had some awesome effects and then showed you how they are done, sadly I lost it.

I agree, it has a bit of the mood, but see if you find The Book of Eli to watch if you didn't yet, I'm sure you'll see what I mean. Really dead, burned lands, dreamy-background-dead wasteland music. Ok, enough off-topic for me now

I will have to give it a look see, I might have seen it and forgotten what with how many movies I have seen. And don't worry this is barely off topic, we are talking about movies in relation to a game that you would like to see a movie made from. So topic is still intact and I seem to be the mod around here and I deem it to be okay.
