GOT Inspired Online Video Games
The universe of Game of Thrones is expanding its horizon more and more. Go beyond the wall to discover the six titles that are based on the excellent fantasy saga and find out if they are worth playing.
We bring you a list of all the video games that have taken inspiration from the famous literary saga, and it is even more successful television series. They are six titles quite different from each other, with very varied game mechanics, who tried or will try to conquer the players like you. Also, we show you in each of them whether it is worth spending your precious time trying them, or whether it is better to take advantage of their bodies for the feast of crows. These are the six video games inspired by Game of Thrones:
- A Game of Thrones: Genesis – PC
It is a 2011 strategy game developed by Cyanide and received very disparate criticism from both the players and the critics at the time of their departure. Of course, it is a title that passed without much sorrow or glory as its gameplay was not good enough and the story (set about 700 years before Aegon’s arrival) that was a somewhat free interpretation of the fantasy novels of the Great George R. R. Martin, did not end up hooked.
- Game of Thrones – PC/PS3/X360
Another game developed by Cyanide in 2012 that, unhappy with the Genesis result decided to try their luck with a role-playing game based on the first book of the saga, Game of Thrones and the first season of the television series. Although the critics praised his excellent work in the field of arguments and history, the truth is that the reception of the title was quite mediocre due to its terrible graphics section, the poor animations, the even more atrocious dubbing or the combat system, which was extremely repetitive. Cyanogen intended to release a version of the game for Android and iOS but it never came to light due to the low sales of desktop titles.
- Game of Thrones: Ascent – Facebook, Android, iOS
This strategy game for browsers and mobile terminals was developed in 2013 by Disruptor Beam in collaboration with George R. R. R. Martin and HBO. Taking as a reference the books of the song of fire and ice saga, as well as the chapters available up to that time of the television series, Disruptor Beam put us in the skin of a nobleman from one of the Great Houses who claimed his birthright.
The game received reasonably regular reviews, although its performance in the narrative part of the story was salient (again). The game was updated weekly with novelties taking essential elements from each episode. This title came to be Game of the Year 2013 in Facebook, and to enjoy considerable popularity (9 million players at its peak), which stemmed, in part, to the full updates that received the game, something that is cause for a good round of applause.
- Game of Thrones: Season 1 – PC/PS3/PS4/X360/XBOne/Android/iOS
This is the adaptation of the universe from Game of Thrones (mainly from the series) to a graphic adventure game *point-and-click, developed by Telltale Games in 2014-5.
It has garnered an excellent reception between public and critics, and despite its split into six episodes (finally assembled in a compilation called Season 1) it has been able to keep fans of the series and lovers of graphic adventures at all vile. It does not precisely follow the same line of argument in the series or the book, but instead sets out a good dose of the drama that looms over the House of Forrester (Stark House vassals) after the events that took place at the Red Wedding. We can assure you that the plot hooks a lot as the game script is exceptional. As in the current titles of Telltale Games, we will have to decide between a series of options that can modify the course of history. Also, our acts will be remembered by the different characters who interact with us, giving rise to certain dialogues or actions, a consequence of our choices.
- Game of Thrones: Season 2 – PC/PS3/PS4/X360/XBOne/Android/iOS
The second season of Telltale Games ‘ graphic adventure game is still in the development phase, but the story will continue at the same point where we have finished the sixth chapter. The game will recognize our first season choices to allow us to continue with the decisions we had made and thus enjoy a complete experience. Knowing the excellent work of the developers and the reception of the previous games, we do not doubt that this second season will be as good, or better, than the previous one. We’ll see what surprises the new script holds for future episodes.
- Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms – PC
It is an MMORPG of the developers of Battlestar Galactica Online, ArtPlant of which not much data is yet known. The departure date was supposed to be 2013, but it has not yet come to see the light of day, nor the night.
We have been able to rescue a trailer-gameplay of presentation of the title that clarifies some of the data, although not many. Judging by the looks of it, it’s not going to be an MMORPG of the last generation, that’s for sure.
