#52 Posted by TheStimpinator (110 posts) -

huehuehuehue... The Baelish/XBone comparison is brilliant.

#53 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12572 posts) -

This is far more clever than I thought it could be. Well done.

#54 Posted by ViciousBearMauling (1429 posts) -

This is amazing

#55 Posted by brettchalupa (29 posts) -

Totally nailed it, awesome job!

#56 Edited by DonutFever (3769 posts) -

This was surprisingly awesome.

I'd also say Sansa is the Wii U, for the same description you gave.

Ha ha ha ha! Excellent! Love the Theon and Viserys comparisons!

#59 Posted by mlarrabee (3185 posts) -

I'd probably find it funnier if I watched any GoT, but I still found it pretty funny.

But then... Microsoft's announcement that the XONE can now function without a Kinect... By the old gods and the new!

Awesome! You just made me crack up.

#63 Posted by Claude (16609 posts) -

Got a kick out of that. Bravo!

#64 Posted by Lanechanger (632 posts) -

ha, this is awesome

#65 Posted by firecracker22 (572 posts) -

Yeah. That was really well done, and perfectly fits. Ned Stark = Dreamcast was especially fitting.

#66 Posted by BR_Interloper (6 posts) -

Simply amazing work, here. Two geeky thumbs waaay up.

#67 Posted by ProfessorEss (7647 posts) -

Fantastic :)

The Wii analogy was terrible. Joffrey doesn't fit anywhere 'cause there is no console that is objectively hated by everyone on every account. Wii is respected not by blind fools afraid for their lives but by gamers who aren't beholden to peer pressure and superficial "coolness."

#69 Posted by Gold_Skulltulla (299 posts) -

@def: Valid response, but Joffrey is still totally the Wii. "Gamers" hate the Wii, or so the stereotype goes, and Joffrey loves to point at things and waggle his finger around to make them do what he wants. Also, the success of both is the result of brothers and sisters *ahem* playing together like they used to back in simpler times.

I love how much work you put into this. Cool list!

But Joffreys pure evilness isn't reflected in this! I know this is just for fun but somehow it bothers me greatly lol. Joffrey would be more like GFWL if GFWL were a console and had been successful :)

@def said:

Sure it is. As the "defensive gamer" narrative goes, the popularity of casual games is an assault on hardcore games, thus casual games are evil. The Wii was largely seen as a platform for casual games, thus the Wii is evil. Joffrey is obviously evil too, thus Joffrey is the Wii.

But hey, if you're not feelin' it, then you're not feelin' it.

Okay, that was impressive.

Bravo, good sir.

#74 Posted by CorporalGregg (81 posts) -

Yeah this really has no right being as amusing as it is, but here we are.

This is the best thing I have seen in a while, love it love it love it.

Needs a picture of an NGAGE with Hodor.

NAILED IT

#81 Edited by RetroVirus (1534 posts) -

This is amazing. All of the comparisons are spot on!

#82 Edited by TheLaq (2 posts) -

I know next to nothing about Game of Thrones, but I still got a kick out of this. The nod to the N64 expansion Pak made me laugh.

#83 Posted by GreenAphid (3 posts) -

Well done. This is amazing.

#84 Posted by Mesklinite (848 posts) -

Awesome job duder! had a good laugh!

#85 Posted by Daveyo520 (7316 posts) -

No Rob?

#86 Posted by dOm_CaTz (269 posts) -

Robb could be the last Atari system(for basically destroying the Stark name). Catelyn could be a high end PC(for being left for dead and has now made a comeback).

#87 Edited by dOm_CaTz (269 posts) -

Also Hodor as a SNES because you just have to love both of them.

#88 Posted by Giant_Bomb (38 posts) -

I've never even seen GoT and I'm impressed. Well done

#89 Posted by Gold_Skulltulla (299 posts) -

@daveyo520: Couldn't think of a good one for Robb or Catelyn, but am open to suggestions. None of the systems I was thinking of made sense for them either (Sega CD, 32X, Jaguar, Game Gear, SNES, 2600). Didn't want to get too obscure unless there was a good joke to go with it, and both of those characters are so straight-laced, it's tough. Already played the untimely death card with Eddard too.

Fucking Bravo man. LOL worthy.

#91 Posted by RadixNegative2 (531 posts) -

Wow this is really good.

#92 Posted by Rotnac (851 posts) -

I've never seen a single episode of Game of Thrones but this post is pretty great! Thanks for sharing!

#93 Posted by FesteringNeon (2223 posts) -

That was pretty enjoyable! Well done sir!

#94 Posted by idiotic_genius1 (426 posts) -

Very nicely done.

#95 Posted by wumbo3000 (1092 posts) -

When I saw the N64 as Stannis, and then the N64 expansion pack as Melisandre I pretty much lost it. Some funny shit in there. Good work.

#96 Posted by soupbones (308 posts) -

Simply amazing.

Should have added "fits in your pocket" for Tyrion/3DS. :-)

#97 Edited by datarez (686 posts) -

Bravo good sir.

So what you're saying is that the Wii is the evil child of PS1 and Xbox 360.

#99 Edited by Grixxel (784 posts) -

I tip my hat to you, good sir. Cheerio!
