Proof that quality adaptations can boost the sales of the games they're based on. I bet we'll see many more as a result

I'm not even so sure that quality is a requirement for boosting. The Witcher 3 saw a substantial player count and sales boost from Netflix's The Witcher show in December 2019 (554% boost in sales compared to December the previous year), and it wasn't exactly what I would call a quality adaptation, it had many issues. Adaptions seem to be good for business all around, unless they are absolute crap tier adaptations.

True, quality is rarely a requirement for something being popular. That's more wishful thinking haha

You'd think so but that isn't always the case. For example, look at the Transformers movies.

Fallout 76 is really good now. People who skipped it at first (like me :)). Should try it again!
