REIGNfall – Game-to-Book Adaptations; Are They Worth the Read?

Welcome to REIGNfall, our weekly series on book topics where we talk fiction and ponder the world of storytelling.


We know movie adaptations of games are pretty much disasters. Just look at Super Mario Brothers. Not even John Leguizamo could save that mess. And please don’t even mention Doom and Street Fighter.

But we’re not talking movies. We’re talking books. So what about game-to-book adaptations? Are they all universally ridiculed? Are some worth reading? We have a winner and a loser in this discussion of game-based books that we’ve sampled.
