Top 5 Wednesday: Books that would make good video games

Top 5 Wednesday information at the Goodreads group Here.

Also remember not all video games are action games! The Sims has proven that :) Samantha wrote that about the topic and I just wanted to reiterate it.

1. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Truth be told this is a difficult topic as i'm not really sure what makes a good video game. I've played some...mostly Sims. With Frankenstein I was thinking about making Frankenstein's monster (the monster has no name, Frankenstein is who makes him and even though I know this I still keep forgetting) and then after you complete the monster you can go around as the monster trying to learn things like he does in the novel. He learns to read and stuff like that and explore a world. Also maybe get him a bride? I believe he wanted a companion. I don't know, i'm weird and think i'd actually enjoy that. Maybe then go off entirely and make little baby monsters and raise a family, who the heck knows lol.

2. Killer Pizza by Greg Taylor

Killer Pizza is a trilogy that I absolutely loved! A group of teens work at a pizza place that is actually a front for a monster hunting organization. That's a short way to put it anyway and it gave me major Buffy vibes! Trying to juggle a pizza job while making new pizzas and then hunting down monsters that are causing trouble...well it sounds fun to me!

3. IT by Stephen King

It could possibly be made into one interesting horror game!

4. The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie

The Abyss Surrounds Us and it's sequel The Edge of the Abyss are about bad-ass pirate girls and lesbians fighting sea monsters. With the intriguing storyline and all the action i'd be so down to play this as a video game!

5. Alice's Adventures in wonderland & Through the looking-glass by Lewis Carroll

Ok so it's a lot of nonsense but going through such a crazy world, going through the puzzles and stuff to reach the end, I think it'd be a fun game.

What books do you think might make good video games?


  1. These are some great choices! And I put It on my list too! :)
