    Default Which Sega games novelizations would you like to read?

    I guess I would like to read "Paperboy" novelization to find out more about those strange characters in the game. Like, why is that guy lying in the street with his asshole in the air? Why are those two guys punching each other? Why does one family have a black house with gravestones in their front lawn? Etc.

    I was thinking something more like "I Thought I Was Dead, But Now I'm In the World of Shining Force II?!"
    - Where it's always 1995 (or so).

    The Ooze. The game's story briefly is set up in the game's intro, but I think there is room for a lot more.
    It would be interesting to know more about the company, the protagonist, the factory, other employees, etc. Also, enemy death scenes would probably be awesome to illustrate in a novel.

    Kid Chameleon would probably be cool to, with all the different environments that game has.
    Modded consoles:
    Master System (v7040) with s-video & direct AV out
    Model 1 with 10mhz overclock & halt switches
    Model 1 with 10mhz 68010
    Model 2 VA2.3 with unfiltered Mega Amp, & s-video
    Model 3 VA1 with compatibility fixes & s-video
    32X with s-video

    Catherine, as a Choose Your Own Adventure book. (OK Sega is only the publisher, but I'd still read it).

    I'd like a Polterguy & Ghostbusters crossover graphic novel.

    For easier licensing, a space harrier novel would be cool.

    I think Shinobi would work great innovelization form. Streets of Rage would be something I'd love to see too.

    I think that the answer is pretty obvious. Golden Axe and Phantasy Star.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    "I had the dream again. It was the day that it rained. Something was loud and disturbing as I tried to spar with Fuku-san. Then I awoke; it was my alarm. Out of the room I went. 'Good morning, Inni-san' I said.
    My name is Ryo of the house Hazuki. This is my story. chapter 1. "

    The perfect Phantasy Star novelization already exists, if you can overlook the small point that it is in Japanese:

    https://phantasystar.fandom.com/wiki/Gamebook

    The publisher Futabasha released three Phantasy Star gamebooks, one for each of the first three games. They are full-fledged 300-page single-player gamebooks of the Fighting Fantasy variety. They don't use dice, however. Rather, you decide a series of random numbers at the start of the game, and those numbers are used to determine the outcome of battles (along with other factors). You keep track of hitpoints, attack power, magic points, money, and items, and you can visit shops to upgrade equipment. The books are basically choose-your-own-adventures that incorporate all of the RPG aspects.

    Hopefully they can one day be translated. They're really the ultimate companions to the games.

    I once read a Desert Strike novelisation that was given away with a Sega magazine.

    I remember enjoying it, but I bet it was terrible.

    Oh, wow, never knew that existed. Apparently there's also a Golden Axe novelization. The guy that runs this site has made them both available as epubs (along with Road Rash and Super Monaco GP):
