What book series would make for good games?

Jim Butcher's Dresden Files.
George R.R. Martin's Wild Cards.
Simon R. Green's Secret Histories.

Most fantasy books fall right into the mold. One in particular is a little known series called The Runelords. In that series, people can take the attributes of other people into themselves to become more powerful (strength, wit, grace, metabolism [which adds to your speed and slows down the world from your perspective], beauty, voice [one character can bring down entire castles just by finding the right pitch with his voice], etc.). You gain the attributes, they lose them (this is usually done to strengthen a warrior to fight for a cause in exchange for safety or money). If the people you take the attributes from die, you lose the attribute. Think of how those mechanics could be handled in a video game!
I stand in the place bathed in heavenly light, thou art where the gate to the Underworld opens, come forth, divine lightning! This is the end! Indignation!

Just because a game gets Best Wii Game Of The Year, doesn't make it good.
