For IJ, it would be a Yakuza-style game with two playable characters, namely Don Gately and Hal Incandenza. It would be similar to the part in Yakuza 5 where you can switch between Haruka and Akiyama. Gately would level up by beating up random thugs on the streets of Boston as well as scripted boss fights against people like Randy Lenz. Hal's main gameplay loop would be tennis instead of combat, and as the game progresses the opponents get harder and Hal gets more and more in a drug-induced haze so the controls fuck up and stuff like that. Each would have substories and various minigames.

I think it would be cool as a fighting game, since the 1-on-1 fights are the core of the action. Maybe play as a Trojan fighter and work your way up the tiers of famous Achaeans until you fight Achilles. And of course everyone would have special abilities, unique armor and be Baki-tier ripped.

Lol the novel I'm writing is the reverse a videogame adapted to a novel its sure to be horrible.

The Great Gatsby
Basically a mafia/gta clone with the events of the story playing out except your decisions have an effect and you can actually have him survive.

Its sure to include Gatsby: WW1 Flashback, Liquor Runs, Sabatoge of competition, Shootouts, fights with various gangs, Police bribes and fucking Daisy and George final boss.

Nick stealth missions to let him be a source of intel having him sneak onto random locations including Gatsbys and Tom's a suuuuper boring bond sales sidequest and drunk fights at parties and fights Tom starts with random niggers.

Mini games: Golf with Tennis and Drunk Daisy Vehicular Homocide.

My favourite novel?
1984 would likely be some sort of stealth/psychological horror game, whereby you have to secretly and slowly gather evidence, bring either the proles or outer party to support revolution, and avoid the constant, constant threat of the thought police, and nosy neighbours. Extremely hard difficulty.
As for my book?
Considering it is pretty much a trashy adventure book set in a fantasy 1979 Australia where mercenaries gather to cross the desolate inside, both to ship goods to the other side of the continent in heavily armed semi-trucks, or to scour the ever-present ruins and
tunnels of a long-dead civilisation for valuable relics, all the while avoiding the monsters, warfare between the aforementioned trucks, a privatized air force of daredevils, the aborigines, and the dozens of different motorcycle gangs, and whatever the fuck is inside the giant dust-storm that never quite goes away.
As for inserting the thematic references to the pointlessness of war, disposability of young men to society, anarcho-primitivist messages, and overall theme of lonely, desolate fighting over the scraps of an old world in a vast, empty plane of dirt and dust, one which, if you drive in the wrong direction, might continue on forever in front of you, I don't know.

Anna Karenina is probably like one of those JRPG's where theres a ton of relationships and a bunch of characters. You'd play as Anna and Levin alternating on and off, and you'll have two romanceable characters, Vronsky and Kitty. Anna's romancing would probably be something like a game of stealth at first, trying to to be detected by her husband (this would go out the window later). Levin's romancing would come later, and there would be a large portion of his storyline concerning peasants and gathering information about Kitty, all the while acting as though he's over her, but also not doing a very good job of concealing his interest.

Reverse concept: video game character bio into book

"Johnny Five Aces powered down the magnabike with a not quite unhearable hum and checked his chronometer. 'Damn.' he hissed threw his clinched teeth which were surrounded by the stubble of five days where in he had not shaven at all. It was almost chromodawn at Clashpoint. Alreddy the sun was sitting Walliston's Hill ah ablaze like so much molten meddle or a coin, gyreating in the air, tossed there by the uncaring hand of an imaginary god that doesn't exist, borne from the interior minds of the hobbled masses. The sky was the color of a television tuned to a dead channel that was orange. Damn, he, Johnny, thought. We thought we were beginning with our mad dreams of time travail but ironically the only time now is the time of which we're out of. It's almost humorous. Yeah, I could almost laugh, if I hadn't cried that part of me away when my parents were massacred by Dr. Malaprop and the government sanctioned murderers of 'CAPITAL'.

He lit a Nicosheen brand swaggerette and took a dip drag, sinking farther into his inferior horologue. He thought of Nina and her mellifluous buttocks that he used to love to bang. Even now his nano enhanced hearing could almost hear her vagina lips quivering with moisture and also pleasure, like a slice of synth-ham being tongued by one of Malaprop's slamhounds. When he got back to City5, he was going to do some sex, no doubt about that. 'That's right doll' he said to nobody and the wind. They were going to do it hard. He smiled, blowing smoke from his nostrils. They were going to do it cyber hard."

I want a Shadow of Mordor styled game that takes place in the Old Testament. For example, he first act takes place where you play as King David and when you sling a rock at Goliath his brains explode. You become king, communicate directly with God, build his temple, and slaughter Pagan invaders. Then you get to play as various characters during the House of Ahab when Israel has been desecrated. In another part, you play as King Jehu and launch a military coup. At the end you see Jezebel thrown from a window and have her corpse defiled by dogs, with you becoming King and launching a genocide against the Baal cultists and the remnants of Ahab's family.
