7 Books That Would Make Amazing Games

Bourne (Robert Ludlum)

Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Conspiracy was an awesome game, but we think the Bourne franchise has a lot more potential in the games industry. Having a stealth/action hybrid game along the lines of some of the better Bond games or Arkham Asylum would be awesome. The games could have us taking part in vehicle chases, on-foot chases, awesome action sequences, like fist-fights or shootouts. It could have us breaking into high security official buildings, and other great stuff. And much like the movies, we wouldn’t really mind if the games do deviate from the books’ story, as long as the characters and the universe remain intact.

Inheritance Cycle (Christopher Paolini)

I know what you’re thinking- that Eragon game was awful. I know, and I agree. But that doesn’t mean all games based on the Inheritance universe have to be bad. No, on the contrary. I think the Inheritance Cycle can be made into great games, especially if they’re RPGs and handled by a good, experienced developer. The story is great, the culture of the world is deep, the mythos is rich… it’s perfect to made into an epic RPG. Of course, we won’t in the near future see that happening, because imaginings of Inheritance outside of books are sort of cursed right now.

A Song of Ice and Fire (George R.R. Martin)

We have already seen the first book of A Song of Ice and Fire, A Game of Thrones, being made into an awesome TV show, and a second season based on the second book will be following soon. As we’re pretty sure a game based on the series will be great too, preferably an action RPG or a strategy game (in fact, there is a strategy game coming out soon). The political, action packed universe of A Song of Ice and Fire and the multiple PoVs are perfect to be made into a long, epic game. Hopefully, the upcoming RTS will be good enough to warrant sequels.
