These Video Game Masterpieces Are Nothing But TextS

What if, instead of action figures and comic books, our favourite video games inspired classic, dog-eared works of literature instead?

These images by A. J. Hateley show us just such a scenario, taking some fairly random games - a little Half-Life 2 here, a little Deadly Premonition there - and basing torn old books on their stories and worlds. Some are literal interpretations - much like those we all so enjoyed back in 2009 - while others go a little further, becoming pieces of fiction merely based upon (or inspired by) the source material.

As a man who has allergic reactions these days to heady works of literature, I think I might just settle in with a glass of wine and that "Green Influenza" survival guide. You never know when it'll come in handy!
