There's always been a pretty big cross section of gamers who also enjoy reading. Many fantasy worlds are also full of the sort of things that we, as gamers, wish we could have in our games. So, today my question is this: what books do you wish we had games for? What books have worlds that you want to play with? If you want, don't limit yourself to books, what movies, games, or comics do you wish we had games to play in the worlds?
While kind of a cross between books and games I am constantly amazed that there is no RPG for the Halo universe at this time. The world is rich and very vibrant with what it has, it fits neatly into the space opera genre, and depending on when you set the game could be open to a number of different kinds of game types. You have the potential espionage laden game set with UNSC versus the rebels. You have the almost horrific beginnings to the Covenant war with an alien race that is just wiping out planet after planet. The desperate end of that war as the tides so quickly turn and suddenly humanity has a chance. The new beginnings at the end of the war with the need to rebuild.
Characters have tons of options to. Normal civilians, grunts, spartans, scientists, researchers, and so on. The world is really fun to play in - I know, me and some friends have made conversions to play in Halo using the R&K system - and has a lot of options. Hell, even the gamer in our group who dislikes sci-fi and space opera was having a blast playing a teenage super soldier near the end of the war.
So, where is it? I want it now! how about you?
