I’m sure you’ve all thought about how epic it would be if some of your favourite books were turned into video games. Let’s face it, if you’re into Fantasy and Science Fiction they would all be RPGs, which means you’d be able to fully immerse yourself into these fantastical worlds. These are just some of my favourite books and world that I wish were video games.
I could definitely see this as an quest/mission driven RPG. You’d get a choice of playing as one of the many key characters. Depending on who you choose you’d be assigned a missions pertaining to that particular character’s role within the overall story arc. However, there should be a free play option too. I’d play as either Rysand, Azriel or Mor. Also, I’d really like to see the Night Court, especially on Starfall.
Your home planet gets blown up and you have to escape on a freight ship that gets infected by a zombie like virus. Your mission is to try and save the uninfected survivors and make sure the crazy AI doesn’t kill them before you can get them to safety. It would be incredible! This is the stuff video games are made of man…
This would be a first person shooting game/RPG with fantasy elements. Imagine being a Demji and discovering your powers. Also the Amani and Jin go on a trek across the desert. The landscape and imagery would be amazing!
Harry Potter (The Sims – Hogwarts)
I’m a huge Sims fan, even though I haven’t played the game in a really long time. Adulting sucks, okay? I’ve always thought it would be amazing if the Sims could do an entire edition modeled on the world of Harry Potter. Imagine that, you’re a kid and on your birthday you get your letter and head off to Hogwarts. Of course, not everyone would be wizards. You could be from a pure blood family and end up a squib or born to a muggle family and be a wizard. With a Sims set-up the possibilities could be endless. Diagon Alley would be a separate “neighborhood” and Hogwarts would work in a similar way in which the University expansion pack did. EA Games, why have you not done this yet? I want to fulfill my dream of being a Charms professor!
Action packed RPG. This would have to be free play, think Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls. The common goal would be either to make sure Aelin regains the Terrasen throne or you could be on Maeve or Erawan’s side. Wouldn’t that be super interesting? You could play as virtually anyone. I’d play as Manon because Abraxos… I need a wyvern in my life!
What are yours?
