In light of the recent success of book to game crossovers such as The Witcher and Metro 2033 , Iv'e been thinking alot recently about other Books that would make great games.
I know there are quite alot of well read chaps and chapettes on this site ( Looking at you Cunning ) so I'd love to hear your ideas , if for no other reason than that I need some new reading material.
I'll start us of :
The Ketty Jay novels - Chris wooding - I see this turning out as a cross between Gears of War and Crimson Skies , a world full of shootouts and dogfighting among the sky pirates of Vardia.
Death's Head - David Gunn - Not exactly sophisticated this one , the book basically reads like an 80/90's action flick. But the main character Sven is probably on of the most bad-ass I've ever come accross , kind of like across between Riddick and Wolverine! Oh , and he has a talking gun with a severe attitude problem.
The Vampire World Trilogy - Brian Lumley - I could include the whole Necroscope series as reading material for any horror fan , but the Vampire world novels would translate the best to game as they are more action orientated , plus they feature the most vicious awesome vampires ever created.
I'll leave the rest to you.........
I used to make arrow in the knee jokes , then Arm Fall Off Boy kicked me in the balls....... Come on Boon , quit teasing us with DLC characters we don't want , give us Arm Fall Off Boy dammit! Or at least give us Detective Chimp........
