This game is the most like Titanic Movie.

What I mean is this is the most perfect videoghame whereaus Titanic movie is the perfect film.

What I am wondering and am seeking advice on is what book do you think it most like, I don't know so many book so I am not an expert on the genre.

Wait? what? Titanic was three hours of my life that I'll never get back. I suppose that comparison would be close to accurate for EVE, except for that whole 'I want to cut myself to distract me from the gigantic suckhole that this movie is' thing.
As far as EVE and books... Peter Hamilton's 'Night's Dawn' trilogy would be a good place to start. Just put the last book down about 100 pages from the end and make up your own ending in your head and all will be good.

Edit: To be more thorough about this, Hamilton does an excellent job of creating a rich and diverse universe full of wonders and terrors. His storytelling is excellent and it's an epic ride almost to the end.... where he humps the bunk completely and manages to actually end a book worse than Michael Creighton. This in itself is an accomplishment, but not one someone should be proud of.

+1 for the Culture novels. I've only read a few of them, but enjoyable reads and the ship AI's are quite entertaining. I particularly enjoyed 'Surface Detail'.

I only read books with lots of big pictures.

Or a pop-up book.

Yeah, you know what would be totally awesome? An EVE pop-up book with lots of big spaceships.

Who put the goat in there?

Yes, Eve is indeed like the Titanic.

I'd go with Dog Day Afternoon over Titanic, but that's me.

Probably one of the more unique questions asked on this forums, but hey-ho, let's go.

If I had to name a book, I'd have to say Battle Royale, by Koushun Takami. Nothing says Eve quite like the people you thought you knew are now shooting you in the face. While small pockets of people refuse to fight, there is always that one ***hole (in the context of the book) who loves to shoot people.

Edit: It's a pretty good film to. For those who dislike subtitles (I don't know why.../shrug) break that rule for this one Lol

Why, thank you, Thing!

EvE's dying again?? It must be Saturday already.

Man this week just flew by.

Ugh

They say most of your brain shuts down on the EvE forums. All but the impatient side, and the sarcastic side. No wonder I'm still awake.

I'd have to say, from what I've read, eve is most like the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. mostly just because everyone dies and there is no easy and happy ending.

I'd go with The Gods Must Be Crazy

I can't get behind the Titanic comparison. Titanic had boobs...

So, you're a bounty hunter. No, that ain't it at all. Then what are you? I'm a bounty hunter.

didn't you quit eve about 25 times already?

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value
