Top 5 Wednesday April 12th: Books That Would Make Good Video Games

118368Top 5 Wednesday is created by Gingerreadslainey. Each week there is a new bookish topic, where everyone can join and create their top 5 list. You can find more information on the Top 5 Wednesday goodreads group. This week’s topic is:

-Since I’ve been in video game hell (in a good way) for the past year, this topic is timely. Remember, not all video games are action games! The Sims has proven that 🙂

This week’s topic was really fun to do since it merges my two favourite things in this world, books and video games! I have tried to do different video games genres, so I ended up on including my favorites. This was so much fun to do, I could probably find 5 more books to add to this list.

Sorry that this post is one day late. I didn’t manage to finish this post in time, because we got a surprise visit from my cousin and her family yesterday.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

This was the first book I thought of when I heard this week’s T5W topic. The book would be awesome as a story based game like an RPG, or that the VR game/world, Oasis, in the books was real. 


Red Rising series by Pierce Brown

This book would be awesome as a RPG game where you are a member or the leader of the rebellion/Sons Of Ares. The main story/main quest is to take down the golds and the society as it is just like the books. Plus having side quests where you are doing different tasks. 


The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey

I can definitely imagine this book as an interactive story, just like the Walking Dead games by Telltale. 


The Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson

I’m currently reading this book, it is the first book in the Mistborn trilogy. It would be really awesome to play a character who is a Mistborn with all of the allomancy powers. The story in the book could also be included in the game, since the worldbuilding is great and the story is really interesting. The genre could either be a RPG, or be similar to the game Dishonored where you also have abilities and the story is to take down the government.


The Martian by Andy Weir

This book would be great as a mix of both a survival game and a simulator game, where the player has to survive on Mars just like the MC in the book. If you do anything wrong or can’t do what you need in time you die.
