More like "the only 5 games I know that came from books".

Seriously? Alice, Dante's Inferno, The Witcher? Who would guess?

Also 5 sliders.

Wtf. No.

Have to agree. Did anybody NOT know Alice and Dante's Inferno were based on books?

I get that SOME may not know the Witcher still but seriously...

It's a click bait title.

Use phrases like "You Won't Believe..."
and "___ you didn't know____"
and "Guess Why______"

It's designed to make the contents seem more exciting than they really are.

I thought everybody knew Witcher was based on its polish novels.

It's obvious with all but Bioshock and irrational created the world of Rapture not the heartless author Ayn Rand.

It is possible Bioshock was influenced by Atlas Shrugged (and Atlantis) but i don't think irrational is toting the same political message as Rand, but in fact the opposite.

Glad Metro 2033 gets a mention as imo that is one great story. Not sure if the Darkness graphic novels came first or the original game? The Order is based on the writings of Arthurian legend.

The Darkness was a comic long before the game.

When you start up Witcher 3 you have a huge ass message this game is inspired by Andrez Sapowski novels or something.

Everyone knows Alice and Dante Inferno are work of literature

You'll get a similiar message when starting Metro. This list is bullshit.
