What books, movies, shows, ect. would make a good video game?
I'm doing research for a hub that I want to work on, and some of my responses include "Supernatural," "Captain Underpants," "Firefly," "The Host," "Breaking Bad," "Hannibal," and the most unusual being "Twilight," but the game centers around killing all of the characters rather than play as them.
So I just want to know: what would you like to see be made into a game? What would the gameplay be like or what game would it be similar to?
I think Inception would make an AMAZING video game. The depth of possibilities you could go with in the dream world, plenty of baddies, cerebral storytelling. Just awesome stuff for a gamer to work with.
I definitely agree with you on that, EJ! Inception was one of the best movies I have ever seen, and it would definitely make a fun action game. I'm curious as to how that would work... The possibilities are endless! Thanks for the great answer!
Is there a game based on Erin Hunter's Warrior series? The books are neat. For little kids, Skippy Jon Jones is a fun, active character.
I'd like to go with a video game set in the Neverwhere universe. Not necessarily the same story, just set in the same universe. So many possibilities. Neil Gaiman should also have direct creative control.
I actually asked a question similar to this but anyway: The Wheel of Time series would make a good RPG, Doctor Who (yeah I know they make video games of that already but I want more of them), Stephen King's The Dark Tower series would also make a good RPG, Cell (also by Stephen King) would make a good survival horror, Neil Gaiman's American Gods might make for a good point and click adventure game, Asimov's Foundation series would make a good action RPG. And thats all I can think of off the top of my head.
Oops! I'm sorry for not noticing it, Willsummerdreamer! The list of similar questions did not show up...
I read and really liked Cell, so I can see why that would make a great game. I will have to do my research on the others. Thanks for answering!
@ Grab a Controller: its ok . good luck on the article.
I totally agree and was also going to suggest the Wheel of Time series! lol
I personally think The Lost World: Jurassic Park would make a nice one. I'm talking about the book, not the movie. Other than that, I think the show Primeval would make a pretty nice game. The works of Edgar Allan Poe would be good too. But since I'm a huge comic geek, I personally would love to see Legend of Oz:The Wicked West, Gen13, Grimm Fariytales, Princess of Mars and Batman Beyond as games. I would've suggested World War Z, but that's technically already a video game.
I think they would be pretty nice exploration action games in the vein of Tomb Raider, Uncharted and the Arkham series. And Primeval, I think would be amazing as kind of a detective and stealthy game. Get handed a mission to explore an anomaly, and how you go about it is up to the player.
