With the seventh season of Game of Thrones now under way, “Ice and Fire” mania is once again in full effect across the world.
It’s beyond question that Game of Thrones is a modern-day phenomenon. Few TV shows in living memory have inspired such devotion amongst fans, and the programme carries on breaking records, with the first episode of season seven smashing both HBO ratings records and Twitter records too.
For the truly devoted fans, the wait between each week’s hourly episode is too much to bear. An extreme example is the case of hackers who made their way into HBO’s computer system. What they were looking to steal, among other things, was one of the episode scripts from the latest series.
Fortunately, there are far more sensible and legal ways to get a Game of Thrones fix between episodes. One option is to read the books if you’ve not done so already. Another is to delve into the growing selection of Game of Thrones games out there.
Here’s what’s out there is to choose from:
The Original RPG
The first ever Game of Thrones game was released back in 2012 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. It’s an RPG game based on the first season of Game of Thrones, but there is also a “Beyond the Wall” DLC add-on for devoted fans.
Reviews of the game are interestingly mixed, with Metacritic showing an underwhelming average score of 58. However, many reviews agree that the game has plenty to offer big Game of Thrones fans, with user reviews bearing this out, and describing the game as “underrated.”
Game of Thrones Slots
For Game of Thrones fans who enjoy a flutter, it’ll come as no surprise that there’s a host of slot game available in plenty of online casinos.
There’s a couple of variations of the game, but whichever one you choose will have that unmistakable Game of Thrones feel, with the games featuring things like “house rules,” including Lannister and Stark. If you’re looking for online slots to play, SlotsOnlineCanada will help you find Game of Thrones and many more.
Telltale’s Adventure Game
Telltale Games’ episode-based Games of Thrones adventure game does rather better in the critics’ reviews than its RPG predecessor, with some reviewers stating it does a good job of putting across the feel of the books and TV series.
This Game of Thrones game is widely available on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and mobile platforms including iOS and Android.
The six episodes use voice actors from the TV show, so everything sounds familiar, and it’s down to players to make key decisions to influence the story.
So, if you’re struggling to remain patient between episodes of Game of Thrones, why not try one of the games? It’s a far better idea than trying to hack into HBO!
