User review spotlight: Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar (DOS)

Games with included books (fiction)

Group Description

This group is for games which come bundled with novels, novellas or short stories, usually to set the mood for the game, but sometimes also employed as part of the game's copy protection.

Note that games with included comics ("graphic novels") do not belong in this group, though illustrated novels are permitted.
