I can honestly say this would be so awesome if done right.

They'd have to keep up with the writing of the series though and keep it as suspenseful and grounded on the characters. You know, we all saw how those LOST: Via Domus and Prison Break: The Conspiracy games turned out. We don't need another one of those.

They'd also have to keep up with the barrage of hilarious Walter performances.

Vikings or Sons of Anarchy

These things need to be done right. I can't wait for someone to make a video game with the same flair as a show like Breaking Bad. Although I still think they are best left as TV shows. Perhaps video games aren't ready for this sort of expression, but I think the episodic treatment could work well, but it has to be done right to be successful.

It says Breaking Bad could do a good follow up side story, but I'm pretty confident Walter will be dead by the end, so that won't happen. Season 5 IS the follow up story. The epilogue, if you will. The main show really ended with Season 4.

Plus, I don't really see that being a good game. For one thing, could you imagine the media's outcry over a game that "glorifies" drug dealing?

@DigitalRaptor: Agreed, I think it should be unique IPs, not TV show adaptations/spinoffs.

It would make a horrific game, I absolutely love the show, but NO WAY could a game be made of its content.

On the other hand, a proper dev handling a Game of Thrones game would probably make for a good game.
