Video games are a great form of entertainment, and they can get even more enhanced with the experience of reading an amazing book. Here are 5 books that will hook every gamer and keep them entertained for hours on end.
1. Comic books
Comic books are a great asset to any gamer. Comics help get the player more involved in the character since it is written from their perspective. Also, comics can be quite humorous at times – this allows gamers to think about life through the eyes of humor and fantasy. You should read the Dark Nights: Death Metal comic books that were released by DC Comics on November 8th, 2017. Some of the best comics are superheroes like Superman (Batman vs Superman) and Batman (The Long Halloween). Graphic novels are just another form of comic book that has more pictures than words. These types of books can be perfect for gamers because they can experience different battles between good and evil just through the graphic novel without even having to play a game! This book has action-packed images that will get gamers curious about what happens next in the storyline so they can begin playing or looking up new games on their phone.
2. Books About Video Games and Video Game Development
Books that are centered around video games or gaming culture itself are always entertaining to read. Reading about someone’s experience with gaming or reading how people have affected the industry will be something that any gamer enjoys doing. You should pick up Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. This book has earned the title of bestseller – it was even on The New York Times Best Seller list for 95 weeks! It has won many awards like the 2012 Goodreads Choice Award for Best Science Fiction, and it’s easy to see why gamers would love this book.
Novels about video game development are another great option for gamers because they get to read about what could happen in their life if they ever wanted to develop games or work with technology. You should check out Ascend Online by Esmond Harmsworth. This is a story about a man who attends college but during his free time, he develops an MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) game. This book will get gamers excited because they’ll think about what it could be like to build a video game from scratch. You should also look at Ready Player Two which is a continuation of Ready Player One.
Manga is great for any gamer, especially if you’re a female gamer because the genre focuses on a girl saving her prince or kingdom – basically a fantasy story that can take place in real life or an imaginary world! You should check out Sailor Moon by Naoko Takeuchi as well as Fullmetal Alchemist Volumes 1-3 written by Hiromu Arakawa. Both of these books have strong female characters who save others using their wit and intelligence instead of just brute strength so if you want something more modern than fairy tales with knights in shining armor, then these two books are for you! Manga also has great artwork, so it’s perfect for gamers because they get to see how the characters transform in the game instead of just playing it over and over again. These books are interesting to read when waiting for a new game release or when you want something that is more action-packed than novels.
4. Novels About Magic
Magic is fascinating because it allows the reader to imagine how magic could be real in their world. It is especially entertaining if you’re playing a game that incorporates magic into gameplay like role-playing games (RPG) or action/adventure games. You should read The Magicians by Lev Grossman because this book will make your favorite gaming worlds seem less exciting than they usually are. This story about an impossible magical land called Fillory will make you want to play more RPG games with wizards and witches in them! Also, this book is a part of a trilogy with 2 more novels to follow called The Magician King and The Magician’s Land.
5. Young Adult Fiction
Young adult fiction novels are perfect for anyone who enjoys fantasy stories – the plot usually follows a protagonist who has to embark on an adventure. The stakes are often life or death, so these novels get readers’ hearts racing! Check out the Maze Runner series by James Dashner because it’s perfect for gamers who enjoy playing games with difficult challenges like Battle Royale or Temple Run 2. This book is filled with action and mystery so you’ll never want to put it down! Also, it’s perfect for readers who like to imagine themselves as the main character by getting lost in gameplay – this book makes you never want to escape the storyline.
If you’re a completionist who hates leaving a series unfinished, then it would be best for you to read through an entire series in one setting rather than to read one book or novel that’s part of a series. You should pick up The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. These books were first published as a trilogy and it gets readers hooked on the first page due to its gripping storyline and its similarities to real-life because these books take place in a post-apocalyptic world where there is a government that forces children to fight to the death in an arena.
These books are perfect for gamers because they will keep you entertained and on your toes by challenging readers with tough tasks and struggles. No matter what genre of novel you prefer, there will be books that gamers will love – they just have to take the time to search through all of them and see which titles pique their interest enough. Keep in mind that gamers who enjoy playing games have a lot of spare time on their hands, so they’ll be more than happy to read a book if it means feeling even partially immersed in the world of the game.
