The point of my post was that actually there are games worth a movie conversion, and those are the games having a well developed plot and based on storytelling rather than on fragging enemies. Dreamweb is one of these, it's not better than many adventures released at the time gameplay-wise, but sure the story behind it deserves some attention and is not just made to fill one page of the instruction manual (which was actually a booklet called "Diary of a Madman", and was a recording of Ryan's thoughts, visions, etc.)

I am sure there are more games like these, I love Doom and other meaning less games but it's not the only possible form of gaming.

They want to make money, and they do. Few give a shit about actually putting out good stuff. But what the hell, we all know it.
