Games and Books Part 1


As amazing as it is for a developer to take a popular book, and make it into something special. It can be difficult to squeeze EVERY detail in there, and in some cases books can even expand a games universe! I took a little time, and made a little list of some games you may not have realized, has books!

Dynasty Warriors – Romance Of The Three Kingdoms

I personally own this novel myself (and boy is it lengthy). Romance Of The Three Kingdoms, Written by Luo Guanzhong, is a Chinese historical novel based upon events in the turbulent years near the end of the Han Dynasty and the Three Kingdoms era, starting in 168 A.D. and ending with the reunification of the land in 280 A.D. Although not all of the stories are 100% accurate it’s still a good read. Not to mention that the game itself has a bit of a cult following.

Parasite Eve – Parasite Eve

“Parasite Eve” by Hideaki Sena is a particularly interesting read, especially if your in the medical field, or just love stories with a good bit of suspense. It’s one book you won’t just find laying around anywhere, and the game (which is a sequel of the book) also had a good following

Enslaved – Journey To The West

Journey To The West is a story about the Monkey King. Granted magical powers by the gods, He met a monk who commanded him with a magic crown, and together they had all kinds of adventures. Now does that sound familiar? Although enslaved seemed mixed reception, its very interesting to see where some developers get inspiration from.

Mass Effect

Mass Effect – Revelation, Ascension, Retribution, Deception, Nexus Uprising Although not featuring your favorite commander, these novels dig even deeper into the Mass Effect universe. Featuring arcs with numerous characters such as Saren and the Illusive man, these books are a great way to fall deeper into the Mass Effect universe. The first 3 (Revelation, Ascension, Retribution) were written by Drew Karphyshn while the later novels were written by William C. Dietz.
