Game of Thrones: Super depressing.

Is this any good? I've only played the walking dead. How does it compare? I'd be interested in the world but I feel like they have much less creative freedom than the walking dead.

@gamefreak9: ive only played walking dead season one, and i didnt care for the tv series, and i really like the game of thrones tv series, but i think this is much better than the walking dead game

I played the first episode and thought it was alright, I didn't really want to wait for new episodes though so I decided to wait until they're all out.

More got before borderlands? :(

I tend to play the first episode of these, then wait until there nearly over before diving in, so this is my dive in point.

Bought the whole season for £4 on Monday after Microsoft fucked up; hopefully it's half as good as the excellent Borderland series.

@gamefreak9: it is good if you are into the series. Walking Dead wowed us because it was at the time when we didnt get 20 of these a year, but this is still good!

I'm also an episode behind, so I also didn't really watch this trailer. It's a pretty good series though, from what I've played.

This game is pretty good for telltale story in terms of it's game narratives, but leagues behind the TV show. Most of the characters from the show are there to be close to their onscreen counterparts. Tyrion has no good lines but is charming, Cersei is a bitch but not as bad as on the show. John Snow is only there to be your cool guy big brother. And the actual storytelling goes from interesting characters and dialogue to the camera focusing on someone's facial reaction after every comment you make. It's not bad, just not Game of Thrones good. Also lots of choices are you honorable/brave or smart.

EDIT: Oh and it's not that depressing. Only sometimes.

I really love the fact that I can tell when a tag was written by Alex without even reading his name lol. "I'm an episode behind so I didn't really watch this trailer. I'll just assume that everything's still super depressing."

I still prefer the 2011 (?) GoT RPG. Great, underrated game.

It's way less good. It's not bad, but I'm having trouble getting invested in it. It's got some good bits but it's nothing up to the Wolf Among Us and Walking Dead.

I like it quite a bit, Walking Dead (season 1) is in my mind the best one of these. I'd put GoT and all other Telltale games above Walking Dead season 2 though.

@armaan8014: It was kinda a poor man's Dragon Age Origins in terms of scale and gameplay, but it did have an interesting story and linked well into the overall GOT style/lore. Worth playing for that

The first couple of episodes of this series were pretty dull, but Episode 3 was actually fantastic. Worth a shot if you're a fan of the show (or if, like me, you're starting to tire of the show but still want something to keep you invested in the universe).
