Top 5 Wednesday: Books that Would Make Good Video Games

I wasn’t sure what to do with this topic… I like to play video games, but most of the books I read are not very action packed. And, yes, not all video games are action games, but it was still hard to find the books that would fit this topic. Here’s what I came up with:

1. Tales of the Ketty Jay series by Chris Wooding

This was the first series that came to mind. It would be a fun adventure, and yes, there would be lots of different action missions. It would be amazing to step into the role of an airship pirate!

2. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Several Neil Gaiman books would be really fun as video games, but, in my humble opinion, this is the most game-like one. The world of London Below hides a lot of traps, and you also have to escape the creepy thugs Croup and Vandemar… A lot is going on in this book!

3. Vicious by V. E. Schwab

Victor and Eli have superpowers, and that is a great start for a game. I also think it would be interesting to be able to choose to play either as Victor or as Eli. The game could add a bit more of what they did in the meantime – especially with Eli hunting all the people with powers – before the final conflict between the two.

4. Alice by Christina Henry

This would be a great horror game, with a lot of puzzles and dialogue. Not for kids at all, though. πŸ˜„ This retelling of Alice in Wonderland is very creepy and violent, but I think it would look great as a game.

5. Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

Yes, I know Harry Potter games already exist, but I would like a game where you create your own character, and go to Hogwarts. It would be so amazing, like a combination of Pottermore and The Sims, I don’t know… πŸ˜„ But if we can’t go to Hogwarts we can at least play a game where we do. πŸ˜‰

So, would you want to play these games?

  1. I’m actually now a little obsessed with the idea of there being a Harry Potter game where you can create a character and go to Hogwarts. I hadn’t thought of it before, but that would be SO cool. Someone needs to make that, ASAP.

  2. The “Alice” one reminds me of the “American McGee’s Alice” game from way back in 2000. Let’s just say it’s a good thing Alice wears an apron to help keep the blood off her nice dress … πŸ˜‰
