Does /v/ read any novels based on video games? I've been catching up on Warcraft lore, but I have to say, these books are just terrible. Take the worst parts of the WoW lore, then have an edgy manchild who loves one-liners write the book with little supervision with no higher up to check the quality of the book. That's every Warcraft book ever made.
Last thing I'd ever read would be vidya books for the exact reasons you've stated.
I did read some 40k books, though: Eisenhorn (first book, bretty gud), Gaunt's Ghosts (first book, bretty gud) and Ravenor (last book, boring as shit).
Also there's The Witcher but it's the opposite here. It's still a decent read.
I'm going through the Warhammer Fantasy books that have an ebook version more sophisticated than a bloody .txt file and the quality varies massively.
Passes time while I work my way up the ranks of another lord's army in Warsword I suppose.
I've been trying to get into reading, but I'm having so much trouble finding things to read. Goodreads is a nice site for that, but rather than recommending the best, they just recommend a bunch of random shit from the same genre. You have to wade through 500 pieces of shit just to get to the 5 gems.
>Shadow Warrior books
What the fuck is there to write about fucking Shadow Warrior?
Wheel of Time
Memory Sorrow and Thorn (anything Tad Williams really)
Anything HP Lovecraft
>Entire village turns red
>An entire city turns red, also pink
>Run away faster
>Gigantic migraine attack
>Reptilian race extinct
I really should see a doctor but they keep dying so hard after I hand shake them to death.
People tend to die when you kill them hard enough.
This one is pretty fucking amazing even if you don't know much about EVE and don't play it. Just a solid sci-fi book

Isn't Arthas: Rise of the Lich King considered to be pretty good?
>watch stephen king's it
>read the book
Couldn't believe it when I read the part where they have an underage orgy. How can books get away with that? There's no way that would slide in any other form of media.
Start with anything Brandon Sanderson, probably Mistborn. His books are good and pretty easy to follow.
Once you have finished, I'd highly suggest Malazan Book of the Fallen. Stick with the first book though, because everything afterwards is brilliant.
I borrowed my friend's adaptation of 3.
That one is way better than the game that's for sure. Connor isn't as self righteous, and all the deleted scenes from the game are present in the book
Tri-edge. Critical fucking hit.
Would it help if I said I'm not actually a fag, but a grill? I thought I was choosing the lesser of two evils when I said fag. I either chose wrong, or you guys really hate romance, which is weird because /v/ is 90% feels now.
Not interested in vag, m8.
I've never even been to tumblr, though. Is this really about my interest in romance books, or are you angry about something else? I'm willing to listen if you want to talk about it.
I would kill for a Shadow Warrior popup book with copious amounts of Wang.
I read the WoW books, but yeah the War of the Ancients Trilogy was shit, as are all the books by Knaaks.
I thought Golden's books were okay though, and I enjoyed the one about Medivh a lot. I thought the way they explained magic in that was cool.
tfw 2 credits on audible and no idea what to spend them on
I've got some Mario manga I've been meaning to post, but I'm afraid of getting banned.
Because I've been banned for less. If it looks like it belongs on /a/, chances are I'll get banned for it.
read the metro books, one of the best series I've read
>the books are seriously fantastic.
Sunset found her squatting in the grass, groaning. Every stool was looser than the one before, and smelled fouler. By the time the moon came up she was shitting brown water. The more she drank, the more she shat, but the more she shat, the thirstier she grew, and her thirst sent her crawling to the stream to suck up more water.
Look, vidya can work with a threadbare plot, if the other elements do the heavy lifting. Meaning, gameplay, graphics, music, setting voice-overs etc.
Books can't work with shitty writing. I mean, unless they're about vampires, religion, conspiracies or kinky sex.
Objectively, who gives a shit about the WoW lore? It's just Warhammer watered and dumbed down.
I don't think that belongs here. This seems to be a thread about video game books, not books that video games were based off of.
Metro 2033 was kinda eh, anyways. Very drawn out and predictable.
Not exactly vidya but this shit was my jam back in the day. I'm not sure they even make them anymore, reading probably isn't hip enough for the nuWalker crowd.
I own this but I can't remember reading it. Was a bastard looking it out because all I could think of was a minotaur on the cover and something about druids, wasn't that far off.
Those early ones before the lore was standardized are a real trip
I read one involving some bitchy mage chick travelling in a caravan with her trap brother to an evil castle or something
god damn that shit is crazy
I've read it up to The Crippled God and it was such a shit halfassed ending that I didnt bother with the other books.
Is it worth it?
Does it atleast have Karsa fucking shit up in it?
WoW books generally read like glorified childrens books, and I certainly wouldnt call any of the newer books good at all, considering they are all plothole ridden shits.
>reading Warcraft books
Even fanfiction is better.
and I mean that literally. Frostblood, Djinjer and Obsidian Dawn were god tier
