I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t read JRR Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings books until I saw the movies,. After I had watched the movies, it made me so much more intrigued about the lore. We as gamers love books that are based on our favorite games. On the other hand, there are those of us who don’t understand these novels based on video games at all- after all, if we had wanted to read, would we be playing video games in the first place?
Still others of us view video game novels as poor cash ins, poorly written and not worth our time when there is so much else that literature has to offer as a medium. I get that some of us are like that, and view video game books as a waste of time. I’m here to tell you that there are some books in this feature that are actually worth reading and really worth investing the time and money in.

While Killzone remains a beloved franchise, there is something about it that has always seemed off to me. However, it’s very hard to deny that it has some great backstory and lore. Killzone Ascendancy, released right after the third game, does it all justice. For those of you who are fans of the series, the book revolves around the game’s plot, and gives the gamer a deeper insight into the war between the Interplanetary Strategic Alliance (ISA) and the Helghast.
