Whether you're a fan of Iain Banks' novels like The Wasp Factory or his sci-fi alter-ego Iain M. Banks' Culture series, it may not have come through in his works that he's had varying video game obsessions from Asteroids to Civilization. In an interview with Edge, the Scottish author details his personal history with games, which of his works would make for good adaptations, his views on cutscenes, and how he thinks people will play in the future.
