The main problem with this list is that video game stories don't make good movie stories. The worlds created can be cross media, stories for games are written very differently because they're interactive. The Bioshock movie, which I read just a couple of months ago was still in the minds of both Irrational and Hollywood, is/was to be about the creation of Rapture, leading up to the events of the first game, pretty much the story of the book "Rapture".
Far Cry 3 and The Line wouldn't work, great game stories, but there's not enough of a story to a decent movie out of... Maybe a mindless summer "Blockbuster" for whatever they're worth, but not a great movie.
Mass Effect, I do agree, but again not the game's story. They've created a vibrant universe (literally, a universe!) full of new races and characters and locations... Personally, I'd rather see a TV series; I still need the hole that Stargate's cancellation left filling...

There is no other game that I have completed more than Fallout 3, I shall never grow old of re-re-re-re-exploring the Washington wastes!
