Sci-Fi/Fantasy Novels That Would Make Great Games Pt. 1 [Twinfinite]

Muaz from Twinfinite writes... "I hide it pretty well, but I’m a pretty big literary nerd. There are times when I’m reading a novel and I think to myself, “This would be an awesome game.” This mostly happens when I’m reading a sci-fi/fantasy novel, which by design are written to include scenes of epic scope, whether it’s two armies clashing on a field of battle or two spaceships blasting each other with lasers on the other end of the galaxy."

Oof! Three titles? All of the amazing sci fi that is out there and you come up with three titles, one of which already has two mediocre games and 1 hopefully stellar game on the way.

What about Dawn for a Distant Earth by Modessitt? iRobot by Asimov? Starship Troopers by Heinlein? (any Heinlein or Asimov really). Neuromancer by Gibson, Snow Crash by Stephenson. Dark Tower by King? Fahrenheit 451 by Bradbury

Actually, Martian Chronicles by Brandbury would make for an excellent Telltale Games narrative. There is so much amazing science fiction and fantasy out there that you could have had two articles just to deal with each section of the genre.

Are you going to completely ignore the Grand Dame of Science Fiction: Octavia Butler? Parable of the Sower?

What about some Jules Verne?

If you're going to write an article about the genre that really gets gamers going, provide a far greater range of titles.

Just for kicks, do me a favor? Read the title one more time, like the whole thing.

Just for kicks, read my post one more time, like the whole thing, perhaps slowly.
