Game of Thrones

“Game of Thrones” is one of the most beloved shows to ever be on television, and that's why most fans may find it hard to move on. Although the fanbase has been divided by varying opinions about the show's ending, there are still many amazing aspects of “Game of Thrones” that outshine that single facet. For instance, it covered various exciting topics, such as political drama, stunning fantasy, and amazing character development arcs. 

Even after finishing the show and the books, some Game of Thrones fans may still feel dissatisfied. Especially considering that George R.R. Martin, the author of Game of Thrones, does not appear to be close to finishing the series. Fortunately, there are a few games that can keep you feeling the Game of Thrones vibe until the show returns. Any true Game of Thrones fan needs to check out these games.

 

5. For Honor 

FOR HONOR : New Cinematic Trailer (PS4 / Xbox One / PC)

Starting off our list of games every Game of Thrones fan should play is For Honor. For Honor is a game that truly represents the war concepts we see on the show. From the division between certain houses to the battle lines drawn between different alliances that cause the wars on the show. If you enjoyed these dramatic aspects of GOT, For Honor is your best shot. The game features the same manipulation and scheming orchestrated by “Little Finger” to start a major war within the Kingdom.

Except here, it's a bloodthirsty warlord who lights the fuse for conflict between the various factions of warriors the game features. These include the Vikings, Knights, and Samurai. After that, a great war emerges, which leads to the division of what was once a peaceful kingdom. You can choose to play as either one of the factions, with each category having its own unique weapons.

 

4. The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition covers the most exciting parts of the show. From the dragons, political conspiracies, as well as the creepy Draugr, who you will find are quite similar to the White Walkers. This game is suitable for those GOT fans who seek to fully immerse themselves in fantastical chaos. Although the whole Elder Scrolls series has always looked like a trip to the magical era, this particular title is most fitting for the breathtaking show. It has great visuals and the same merciless attitude that drives you towards the pursuit of power over the regions of Skyrim.

The game modes also fully support any efforts you may have in bringing Westeros into the Skyrim universe. Mainly because it lets you shape your environment, character and events to truly fit into any fantastical theme you want, in this case, GoT. The game also provides you with different types of NPCs you can engage with and even marry. With an expansive world, you can explore faster by horse riding. Not to mention several towns and cities where you can look for jobs and other interesting activities to engage in.

 

3. The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Launch Cinematic

Those who rooted for the Night's Watch and enjoyed the ever-lethal combat encounters of the ‘King Slayer' may find the same thrill in The Witcher 3. Set in a war-torn world, The Witcher highlights the gritty aspects of GoT. It demonstrates the fear, violence, and disorder that come with poor rulership and division among the people. Like GoT, the game is based on a series of lore derived from European mythology, with a similar fantastical theme. Follow the story of Geralt of Rivia as he slays monsters throughout the realm.

The same way you may be drawn to the heroic characteristics that make up Arya Stark's character is the way Geralt's quests will unfold for you. In his quest to find his daughter, who is on the run from other dangers, you will witness his unwavering determination. Fight, hunt, upgrade, and sharpen your skills to become the best Witcher in the land in order to take down monsters. The game also gives you three possible endings, which are, of course, determined by your actions. These include the choices you make at key points in the game.

 

2. Game of Thrones: A Telltale

The best game for those who are still hungry for more of the GoT show is Game of Thrones: A Telltale. The game offers the closest relationships you will ever have with the show's characters. It's a story-driven interactive drama where your choices and actions influence the events of a six-episode arc. The narrative runs along the topics surrounding the House of Forrester, following the same sagas as the show. The six episodes feature the characters in the setting of the novel “A Song of Ice and Fire.”

Although the story continues despite which choices you make as you play, the effects can soon be seen in later events. Similarly, the behavior and presence of the game's NPCs may be a result of your initial choices.
