Apparently a game based on the Inception universe is not out of the picture.
It has been discussed but as far as I know, nothing is set in stone.

I could easily make a profit at that price. It costs more to make it!

Yume Nikki- http://www.theneitherworld.com/yumenikki/links.htm

It's a Japanese freeware game made using RPG maker, and is a trippy and horrifying experience. Rather than fight, you have to collect a series of "effects", which are found in multiple dreamscapes and alter your main character in different ways. It also has a shout-out level to the first Mother game.

Speaking of, the Mother games all have sequences where you're in a dream world, or a hallucinated one.

Well, there's the Lawnmower Man game based on the movie.
I remember a point in Breath of Fire II that you had to enter a dream world.
Link's Awakening hasn't been mentioned yet.

the Lawnmower Man movie was about virtual reality -- not dreams.
The story was about a goat-legged man... kind of.

Heh. Yeah, I still find it hard to tell VR from REM.

If we're including segments of games - remember Metal Gear Solid 3, and the dream you'd have if you saved in the cell? I loved that.
