There's plenty of games based on films around but a significantly smaller number based on books. Even SoC is a combination of the book and the film though leaning a bit more towards the book in my opinion. There's Metro too of course even if it is pretty fair to call it consolised stalker but I can't think of much else.

Witcher, though books are trash, written by an alcoholic lefty with inferiority complex.

These two and maybe Tom Clancy games, but not sure how closely they follow the books if at all

Tom Clancy had limited input on most of them. He certainly didn't get on with Ubisoft during the development of Splinter Cell.

After Splinter Cell Tom Clancy had hardly any input in any of the games and then he sold his name which resulting in Ubikike Whoring it out.

I feel these books would be complete mindfucks to reads. When do we get a bookclub board?

Do bible references count? A lot of games do that to try and seem deep.

Oh fucking lawdy I hate that shit in vidya. It's pretentious crap to try and make someone dumb sound smart.

I HAVE NO MOUTH, AND I MUST SCREAM is a fairly short story. I wouldn't call it a mindfuck. If you have any empathy it may make you feel emotions about the main characters. That's pretty much all. It's an entertaining read but it's horrific in its portrayal of the terrible future; It's an exercise in maximally-misanthropic globe-dominating AI. Though, thinking back, It's one of those stories that made me start hating misanthropes instead of ignoring them.

YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.

I think Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth gets closest to "walking around in a book" but I haven't played it beyond the first 20 mins and I haven't read the book either. I think I might watch the series first but I need that in better quality than the shit on youtube atm. All this for a Daedalic game I read about last christmas, fml.

Nordic mythological references are better.

Other than Rainbow Six and The Hunt for Red October, I don't think that there are any games based on it. I know that there was a Jack Ryan DLC for one of the Rainbow Six's, but that was based on the reboot movie.

There's a Wheel of Time FPS that's actually pretty good if you can get it running.

Light novels are books, right?

There's a shitty JRPG, the pic related megaman clone, a shmup, a VN, a dungeon crawler and soon even a TRPG, but nobody's made it into the 3D Zelda style action RPG it was meant to be.

Most fags know about The Hobbit which is basically a linear 3D Zelda clone and came out before the Hobbit films were even a poorly thought out twinkle in Jackson's eye. Less fags know about the second picrelated which was a lazy attempt to cash in on the films' popularity despite being based purely on the original book because the rights to make vidya based on that were held by a separate company than EA who made the much better film adaptations.
