The only ones thus far I've gotten the chance to watch that were god are probably these "visual novel type things". And there's Beyblade games and stuff in alphabetical order.

Probably stuff like Clannad, Air, Kanon, Steins Gate, Air, Hirugashi. Visual novels are games and they can be great animes when it's do properly.

TVTropes has a discussion about this at http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheAnimeOfTheGame . (If you're not familiar with TVTropes, then please keep in mind that the site is surprisingly compelling, and that reading it can take hours and hours and hours...) Some examples I've heard of...

* All of the Arc the Lad games are available in English (the PS1 games are on PSN, and you might need to dig through bargain bins and auctions to get the actual PS1 discs or the PS2 games). Likewise, the later anime spinoff was released on DVD by ADV Films.
* Pokemon started as a Gameboy game. Then a spinoff TV series, comics, and card games were made.
* The Galaxy Angel TV series is loosely based on the original RTS/romance games, but with much less serious characterization and writing. Several seasons of Galaxy Angel were released on Region 1 DVD, but the only way to experience the games in English is through fan translation patches for the Windows games.
* Idolmaster Xenoglossia is a TV series that has almost nothing to do with the original idol-training games. (Fans are currently making a little progress in translating Idolmaster SP.)
* Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha is a fan-favorite series that's very loosely based on the H-game Triangle Heart 3: Sweet Songs Forever.
* Persona: Trinity Soul takes place somewhere in the multiverse which is Shin Megami Tensei. Meanwhile, the new Persona 4 TV series looks like it'll be very much based on the PS2 game.
