‘Game of Thrones’: Living on through video games

Game of Thrones, arguably one of the biggest TV shows ever to hit our screens, came to an end in May last year after eight hugely successful and popular seasons. From the very first episode, viewers were hooked. . Now, 73 episodes later, the story has been told, but it’s not necessarily the end for Thrones fans.

It will come as no surprise to learn that over its eight years on TV, Game of Thrones’ popularity was so widespread it managed to have a significant impact in other areas away from television. Multiple video games based on the hit TV show have dropped over the years, with reviews being fairly positive overall. There have even been releases of slot games carrying the Game of Thrones theme. Microgaming’s Game Of Thrones can be found at PartyCasino and similar sits.

So far, eight games video based on Game of Thrones have hit the market, with these playable on PC, in-browser, Xbox, PlayStation and of course, mobile. The vast array of games covers several different worlds within George R.R. Martin’s Westeros, giving fans the opportunity to hone-in on which stories they like best.

Blood of Dragons was the first in the game series released, dropping four years before the TV show hit screens. Things quickly accelerated after the series premiered, with A Game of Thrones: Genesis and Game of Thrones being released in 2011 and 2012, respectively. These were very much tentative steps into the gaming market, with later releases much-better received by Thrones fans.

Game of Thrones: Ascent, Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series, Game of Thrones: Conquest, Reigns: Game of Thrones and Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming have all proven to be massive hits with people who enjoyed the TV show, as they’re able to continue their GoT journey whenever they like, and at their own pace. The titles released on iOS and Android are arguably the pick of the bunch as they allow players to enjoy some Westeros action from wherever they are.
