As a devout film lover, I’m naturally inclined to think of how an adaptation of different narratives would look like in the medium of film. However, when I played the 2020 video game Hades all I could think was “this could not exist in any other medium.” If digital media is media whose existence is only made possible thanks to computer technology, Hades may be one of the best examples of this in the medium of video games. The story isn’t anything exceptionally new, and it’s no secret that the main plot and subplots are all adapted from Greek mythology
