This is probably the nerdiest thing I've ever put together, but I couldn't let this vast stock of Game of Thrones facts that've been piling up as I make my way through the books go to waste. This list is not conclusive; it's missing Robb and Catelyn specifically, but I couldn't think of a good console parallel for either. Also, it's supposed to be a joke, so there's that. What I enjoyed the most about putting it together was how just looking at the character next to their console made sense, like the way dogs supposedly look like their owners. So, without further adieu:

Joffrey – Wii – Rules the land, but many seek to defy him. Has broad reach, but not much respect.

I was ready to bash this as it reeks of a cheap Kotaku hot 100 list, but these are actually pretty clever and well thought-out. There were several where I saw the picture and thought "nope" but when I read the caption I instantly realized "oh yah.. thats clever"

Daenerys as the PS4 is probably the most apt comparison.

Here's a secret of the Ice and Fire series: It's a game between two players, Varys and Petyr.

Interesting, but definitely leans towards Sony's side... the Cersei/360 connection seems thin. If the 360 was anyone it would be Robert, who fought to become the king then eventually got lazy and mishandled it once he was there. I've seen this done for politicians and countries too.
