SF Books That Could Be Turned Into Video Games

This week on the radio show Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me there was a segment that suggested classic books that would be turned into video games after noting that Dante’s Inferno was coming out soon. Here is a list of the ones they came up with.

  • Don Quixote Kong
  • A Hundred Years of Solitaire
  • Pacman and the sea
  • War and Peace but Mostly War
  • Super Karamazov Brothers
  • A Tale of Sim-cities
  • Grand Theft Odyssey
  • Pride and Extreme Prejudice
  • Love in the Time of Tetris

But of course, I couldn’t help but think of some games based on classic science fiction. Read on to see what I came up with…

  • Call of Dune
  • Gears of the Forever War
  • A Canticle for Zelda
  • Roy Battymon Ruby

Ouch, OK those aren’t very good. But here’s your chance – can you do better? Here is the episode of the show to inspire you.
