I just recently read Starcraft: Evolution and it was pretty decent. It was kind of nice to see someone describe what a fight against zerg would actually be like. I've also read some of the Halo books as well. I did read some of the Witcher books but they never stuck with me. I have a feeling reading them in their native polish would be much better . . .
I heard the WH40K books were pretty good and it is always fun to read some D&D books. What are some other good books based on video games that are worth reading.
Also, do you think it would be feasible (probably not) to write a short story in a video game world and then see if the devs would purchase it from you or let you license it to them? I assume, you couldn't be a nobody. But i've always wondered if I were to do something in the Path of Exile world.
Even though i probably suck at writing, i do have a 100,000 word novel sitting in my gmail collecting dust because I play video games too much.
