we've been having a grand old time discussing books that we'd like to see made into games. Then MikeRM asked me a troubling question "what is it about these books that I want to see in games but can't given the currently available games?" I had to realize that my post was primarily just geeking out about great stories that I'd like to play. I hadn't really been thinking about whether or not existing games were up to the task. So I'm throwing it out to everyone who enjoyed that thread. Are the existing games sufficient to do your favorites justice? If so, which ones and why? If not, why not? Do you have to tweak anything to make it work or add anything to the existing game to really get what you're looking for? Is it just setting and color you need or is it a system question?
I'm formulating my own thinking about the books I listed and will post as soon as its baked a little. Thanks Mike for a cool addition to the thread.
