16-Bit Game of Thrones

Do you pine for the days when RPGs were simpler? Do you look back fondly on grinding against T-Rexes in Final Fantasy VI (or III or whatever you want to call it these days), or the time-travelling antics of Chrono Trigger? Now you’re all grown up, though, and can’t get enough of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire or HBO’s Game of Thrones, right? Well, have you ever been curious what the videogame version of A Game of Thrones might’ve looked like if the series had found superstardom when it was first released in 1996? Thanks to College Humor, we don’t have to ponder any longer!

It’s a terrifically funny little homage (which has its tongue planted firmly in cheek); the absolute highlights being Jaime Lannister’s infamous run-in with Bran Stark, Dany and Drogo’s rhythm-based mini-game, and the MIDI rendition of the Game of Thrones opening theme song.

As with all things Game of Thrones- or College Humor-related, it’s NSFW!

Aidan Moher is the editor of A Dribble of Ink, a humble little blog that exists in some dusty corner of the web. He hasn’t won any awards, or published any novels. But he’s, uhh... working on that.

No kidding. It'd be a perfect downloadable game for a handheld!

Someone please make sure @leighdb doesn't see this, lol... although this would be a great way for her to find out about Robert's bastards, lol. I could just see her saying : I feel so STOOOOPID! Like one of the the Puppet Characters in the 200th episode of Stargate.

I think Theon's "You don't even know who I am, do you?" thing was my favorite part.

This is hilarious! I'd SO buy this game!
