When I see headlines like this I immediately scan for Shakespeare (I know he didn’t write novels but typical web writers don’t make such clean distinctions…) Alas, no Bard in this list.
But it does beg the question, what Shakespeare makes for good video games, and what sort of game would it make? I’ve seen a number of variations on Romeo and Juliet as a game, ranging from text adventure to platform/jumper. But what else? Could Macbeth make a good first person shooter?
