I've been thinking about this a bit, and I've decided that the book isn't different. One of my favorite books is a Black Library publication set in the Warhammer world. There have been good Warhammer games. I can see why the book couldn't have been set in the Warhammer video game world, if there was no tabletop version. I think it's just that there haven't been any good translations, not that there couldn't be, and this is probably a problem with the market more then the mediums themselves. RPG/Tabletop games seem more likely to become books because the audience is generally thought to be nerdy in the 'reads fantasy novels' way, so they get good books, unlike video games or movies.
Edit: Also, looking at my bookshelf, a large portion of the books based on Blizzard's games are very good.
