I feel like this one could be better, if some of the more obvious clues were left out (Batman for Arkham City, 2033 for Metro 2033 etc). I mean it's an interesting concept. But if you look for some more inspirations that are a lot less obvious, I would totally play this.

Cool Quiz. Some other potential suggestions- You might include the Monkey Island games, which from what I understand were based on the novel On Stranger Tides and the Pirates of the Caribbean ride (which, were turned into a movie series that wound up basing one of their installments on the book On Stranger Tides, strangely enough). L.A. Noire felt very inspired by neonoir films like Chinatown and L.A. Confidential. GTA: Vice City clearly drew a lot of Scarface and Miami Vice. I remember a developer of Gun saying the Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian was an inspiration for that game.

Alright, I've changed the title to be a bit more appropriate, removed some of the blatantly obvious answers based on suggestion, and added some new answers as well, some based on the above suggestions. Thanks for the feedback guys, I'd like to hear what you think of it now.
