    Reminder that Nintendo had the chance to buy all non-movie/book rights to Harry Potter back in the 90s and turned it down

        In the actual books Harry and his friends aren't running around everywhere casting spells willynilly. They could have made the games more like a 3D adventure game where the player attends classes and tries to solve mysteries; that would have been more true to the source material, but maybe that wouldn't have appealed as much to the gradeschoolers who liked Harry Potter.

          The early games barely even fucking used magic, they were basically platformers

            I don't know what you mean. I had Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for the PC and you're always using flipendo to flip switches and knock over enemies. Later you learn incindio which is like flipendo but for plants. And you're always trying to cast alohamora everywhere looking for secrets. Yes, there was a lot of Crash Bandicoot-style platforming as well. None of this was like the books.

          >They could have made the games more like a 3D adventure game where the player attends classes and tries to solve mysteries; that would have been more true to the source material
          sounds more true to HP than whatever game based on book 5 exists now

            It's a fucking slog. You missed Umbridge, the only character in the series who is actually more evil than Voldemort (who at least has a sympathetic backstory), you missed Harry being a PTSD-riddled moron who can't stop provoking Umbridge and subsequently loses everything he loves about Hogwarts, and you missed Harry going mega retard and getting the best character in the series killed (but that's also Dumbledore's fault).

              i misremembered. i didn't skip it completely. i did try reading it. but idk how far in i got
              >You missed Umbridge, the only character in the series who is actually more evil than Voldemort
              i remember her name and being a total bitch. what was her deal again? she was a genuine bad guy right?
              >you missed Harry being a PTSD-riddled moron who can't stop provoking Umbridge and subsequently loses everything he loves about Hogwarts,
              don't recall the ptsd portion but constnatly provoking umbridge, totally. expected nothing less
              >and you missed Harry going mega retard and getting the best character in the series killed

                Pretty much. Loyal to the Ministry, not the Minister, and a sadistic bully through and through.

                >don't recall the ptsd portion

                They don't outright say he has PTSD, but he spends most of the book dealing with the trauma from the graveyard in Goblet of Fire.

                >who?

                Sirius Black. He got done dirty. And the really frustrating thing is he fucking gave Harry a magic mirror that could have prevented Sirius from dying if Harry had just fucking taken a look at it.

                The thing that makes Umbridge worse than Voldemort is that you'll probably never meet a Voldemort in real life, but you will DEFINITELY meet at least one Umbridge.

                It's got a few good moments. Dumbledore dabbing on Fudge at the hearing, and then dabbing on him again for good measure when the DA is busted. But overall it's a pain to read.

          This is why I'm glad you people are too stupid to develop video games.

    J.K. Rowling must have played these games because in the later books they might as well just be casting flipendo at each other during their wizard "duels."
