Novels that would make great games Pt.1

Whats that you say? Nobody reads these days? True as that may be, it is rather unfortunate that people don't read enough as they should, there are plenty of books out there that would make terrific video games. In fact, believe it or not, plenty of your favorite video games have ties to many classic novels. But for now, this post is here for the purpose of discussing great novels that could make great video games:

The Iliad

Ok so this one really isn't a novel. It is true that this may be cheating but the movie was based of two great novels: Orwells 1984 and Huxleys A Brave New World. Besides, who else wouldn't want to go around as a Grammeton Cleric using the Gun Kata on anyone who gets in your way?

I think anyone can imagine how the game would play out. I can see it being easily butchered but I could also see if someone put the amount of time it deserves in it this would make an excellent game.

So that�s my list for the time being. Anyone else know of any good novels that would make excellent games?

Who am I?

A gamer from the South Side of Chicago. Currently going to college for a Computer Science degree and looking into a course for C# certification so I can become a business applications programmer (gaming programming just isn't worth it).

What do I do?

Play games, play sports (european and american football), read a lot, go to the pub (need a new one, got banned from my old one), program crappy little applications, and so on.

Looking Forward to
