    "In the future, people will debate which video game was more faithful to the book more often than they debate today which movie was more faithful to the book. Metro 2033 certainly takes its liberties. For a video game, it does a fantastic job of recreating what was special about the book."

    "Shadow of Mordor gives us a more mature take on the Lord of the Rings saga. The game-play is fantastic with responsive controls and outstanding graphics. The game system rewards multiple play-throughs. The nemesis system really keeps you playing. It really is hard to stop."

    "I just finished a game so I wanted to find something new on Steam. I was thinking about reading instead of playing so I decided to find games of steam based on novels. I searched for Game of Thrones and found that it was from the same makers of the excellent Walking Dead games."
