" for the very same reason you wouldn’t try to adapt a painting into a stage production"

Yet something like Les Miserables which is a book that discusses politics was successfully transformed into a musical that focuses on a love story and the French revolution.

For the very same reason, there is no reason to keep Video Games in the dark ages.

I didn't think that was a very good analogy in the first place. A painting is, with a few exceptions, a snapshot of a moment in time. You could take that moment and write a play based on how it came to be, or on the immediate aftereffects, but a play on a single moment wouldn't last long enough.

Virtually all other forms of media are moving: they change from moment to moment. So whether it's turning games into books into movies into plays into soundtracks into games, it's possible and plausible.
