Would I want one? No, but Mistborn would probably work okay as a game.

All I could think while reading it was that it was very ... superhero-ish. More like Batman than a fantasy novel, and the magic was more like superpowers. Very casual-friendly for a fantasy novel, as well, so I'm not surprised that it's popular. I once told a friend it was the MCU of fantasy, though that's probably not fair. To be perfectly honest, I didn't care much for it. It's the first Sanderson book I've read and probably the last.

Actually, now that I think about it, Dishonored kind of fills the same niche already.

Gardens of the Moon would be a much more interesting backdrop but that's never going to happen.
