Books that Should Become Video Games

The world of video games is full of characters and settings brought from other works of arts - books, movies, comics, and so on. While most of these adaptations were usually disappointing, there were also instances, when the final product turned out unique, novel, and playable as hell, such as the Arkham, Metro, or STALKER series, and some of Ubisoft's Tom Clancy games. Today, we will explore the world of literature, searching for other books that should be brought to our computer and TV screens.

The Best Upcoming Superhero Games 2019

Superhero games are a peculiar lot. Some of them seem to prove the point that franchises belonging to one medium are happiest within it, and converting books to movies and movies to games is a rather futile endeavor. And then come titles like the Arkham series, or the recent Marvel's Spider-Man, and we go racking our brains, trying to come up with a reason why all these games aren't that good. One way or another, there's sure plenty of publishers, who'd love to capitalize on the popular superheroes in the coming months, and in this article, we look at the most interesting upcoming games based on superhero franchises.

Analysis: What End-User Agreements Say About Ownership

Digital distribution changed the video game market forever in a number of ways, most of which are greatly positive. It brought some obvious benefits for the customers, developers, and the environment. But if you thought that the only thing that changed was the way in which games are distributed, then think again, because by far the most significant difference is also the least apparent, and lies hidden in the EULAs that we mostly don't bother reading. Fortunately, we read them for you, and asked our friendly gamer lawyer for his opinion – here's what we found.

Evolution of 3-D Open World Games – 1996-2007

An open world – a virtual environment that enables us to explore freely and without constraints – is not a new concept in video games. Looking back at some of the older titles, you will find that the first attempts of creating an open world can be traced back to Sega’s Jet Rocket simulation, developed in 1970. The first, fully scalable open-world games were 1984’s Courageous Perseus and Hydlide. The first bolder attempts were made in the 90s, and the formula established back then remains widely popular until this very day. Now, let’s take a short trip down the memory lane, and take a look at this concise overview of open-world games created between 1996 to 2007.

I Suck At Battle Royale, and Apex Legends is My Favorite Game

I have never liked battle royale games very much. Mostly because I suck at them. Big time. So why did I decide to write about Apex Legends?

2019 Top Unexpected Video Game Hits

Anyone can easily answer the question of "what games are you looking forward to playing in 2019." No biggie, right? But how many among these would be AAA titles? Half, maybe three quarters? Perhaps the biggest hustle of making small and independent games is promoting them without the budget that the biggest titles can enjoy. If the game turns out to be exceptionally good, it can achieve good sales by the word of mouth alon, but otherwise, many titles go by unnoticed. We buck the trend and give you a list of 2019's dark horses.

Eight Things Apex Legends Does Better Than PUBG and Fortnite

Apex Legends is a rare phenomenon. The game wasn't advertised at all, it wasn't even really announced before it was released. Yet it managed to win over tens of millions of players, which is all the more impressive if you recognize that the sector of battle royales was largely dominated by truly gigantic games. What sort of sorcery have the devs from Respawn used to make it possible? We've pin-pointed at least eight.

Half-Life 3 Won't Save Steam. Valve's Secret Weapon Went Rusty

Where are the Gordon Freemans of yesteryear? I can still vividly remember, when on cold and bleak November nights, when nothing seemed to give hope any more, I would let my mind drift away to the never-ever land, where Gordon waited for me; offering a firm handshake, he would say “How nice to see you. Come on, I’ve got something I want to show you.” And follow him I have, and he showed me miracles. And the greatest among them, was Half-Life 3. Today, when I try to get to the same place again, my brain goes “Meh,” and I go playing Minecraft.

Video Games' Stories Suck and it's Our Fault

No matter which video game you think had the best story, chances are it… sucked. Compared to ambitious TV series, movies, and books, video games offer plots that barely hold water most of the time, even in the cases of the critically acclaimed titles. And while they compensate with numerous other elements, it can be difficult to understand – why do we settle for mediocrity?
