Great literary works that would make great games

"For all of the bluster and fuss over “high brow” and “low brow” entertainment, books and videogames are not always so different from each other. Both can be vessels for detailed and highly engrossing narratives.

Many great games have drawn from a rich pool of literature, especially those of the East. The four great epics of China from which we have gotten Suikoden, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and the various adaptations of Journey to the West, all owe their inspiration to their famous source material.

Here are several works from both classical and modern literature that could easily make for some killer titles." - Maxwell Coviello (Culture, Romance of the Three Kingdom IV: Wall of Fire, Suikoden)
