I love Benoit Sokal, or rather used to, for Siberia. The 3rd one lost the magic though. He's Belgian but works for Microids which is based in Paris.
Remember me was very memorable as well, made by Don't Nod Entertainment.
And ofcourse Quantic Dream, Heavy rain etc.
So it seems France is more into narrative games, or at least those are the more popular ones coming out of France.
