In general, Enslaved: Odyssey To The West was adapted from a 16th century Chinese novel entitled Journey To The West, although it can be understood that the technology in it is the creation of its own developers. This game was released in 2010 and featured several characters from his books such as Monkey (Sun Wukong) and Pigsy (Zhu Bajie).

In addition, the game also brings more battles and puzzles than the book, which is very interesting. Enslaved is one example of the success of developers in translating books into video games.

2.Assassin’s Creed
The death of several world leaders in the hands of Assassins in the Assassin 'Creed game series may indeed be fiction. However, the initial idea of the series that catapulted Ubisoft's name, in fact, came from a writer named Vladimir Bartol.
Through his book Alamut, released in 1938, Bartol tells of a man from the 11th century who discovered a 'truth' behind the power of belief. It was the basic plot of the first Assassin’s Creed, with Altair considered a representation of the 11th century man from the book Alamut.

The big idea held by Ayn Rad when writing Atlas Shrugged, apparently aroused 2K's interest in adapting to the video game series called Bioshock. At Atlas, Rand carries the objectivism philosophy, which adheres to the idea that society can develop in 'selfish' conditions.

In other words, everyone must maintain and govern themselves, without any state interference. This is also one of the things that is often echoed in every Bioshock title and is one of the factors or reasons why Bioshock always looks attractive.

4.Dynasty Warriors
Dynasty Warrior was adapted from a 14th century Chinese novel entitled Romance Of The Three Kingdoms, which also had its own game in the 80s. While the original game Romance Of The Three Kingdoms carried a turn-based tactical strategy mechanism, the Dynasty Warrior chose to be even crazier by using a hack and slash mechanism.

At the beginning of the game, players will be told to choose between Three Kingdoms or Three Kingdoms such as the Wu Dynasty, Shu and Wei, for later players to represent. In newer titles, Dynasty Warrior offers a more diverse background and character.

5.Spec Ops: The Line
Just like Francis Ford Copolla's legendary film Apocalypse Now, the highly controversial Spec Ops: The Line, also took inspiration from Joseph Conrad's novel entitled Heart Of Darkness. Spec Ops: The Line is set in the Middle East and just as the book is adapted, tells about the madness of war, humans and how the combination of both can create something bad that cannot be imagined. Although military-themed, Spec Ops: The Line is quite 'dark', with a terrifying depiction of the battlefield and the loss of ideology after bullets after bullets began spewing out.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R takes several main plots from Arkady's Roadside Picnic novel and Boris Strugatski, while the title, based on the film adaptation of his novel entitled Stalker. The first game S.T.A.L.K.E.R, namely Shadow Of Chernobyl, became the most similar to Picnic Roadside, where both of them shared about the horrific events in the Soviet Union. Interestingly, several members of the developer team who worked on S.T.A.L.K.E.R, decided to set up their own studio and make another Soviet novel adaptation game, Metro.

There can be no doubt about Bloodborne's aesthetic values, taking a lot of inspiration from H. Lovecraft's books. Every character or enemy that is presented, all have almost 'fingerprints' from the works of Lovecraft and it is very clear that he gave an injection of great influence on the design of the world and the characters in Bloodborne.

True, if a lot of games are packed with similar themes, Bloodborne is far more neat and massive in packing the theme. Apart from all that, the Bloodborne is indeed one of the best PS4 games that must be played.
