I’ve never seen an episode of Game of Thrones and I don’t really understand much about the ending, but I know a lot of fans were really disappointed. But would you still recommend?
@coo111, if you aren’t really hung up on “picking sides” and just want fantasy action yeah sure but do be in mind the were given full “do whatever” in the last season because the last book wasn’t written. But solid cast and setting.
@coo111, Absolutely. Regardless of how the show ended, there’s arguably 5/6 really phenomenal seasons of content and writing (depending on who you ask, a lot of book fans hate everything after 4) no matter how bad they fumbled the last season. It’s upsetting the whole show seems to have a black mark on it now that it’s over, because the first few seasons in particular have some really special moments that outclassed a lot of things on TV at the time. Like @TheForeverGhost said just be aware of what you’re getting into if you decide to watch till the end
@coo111, first few seasons are amazing and while for some its enough ngl it kinda ruined it for me that the ending was so bad, character arcs destroyed, nonsensical stuff happening, big fjck you's to the fans (basically all the things the show lays ground work for you to think will happen all 20 theories you could come up with what they give you... they don't do any of it)
I'd still recommend watching it, but I wouldn't get too invested because it just comes with mega disapointment
@coo111, yeah. It’s the best fantasy action since lord of the rings. The ending controversy came from it being rushed. So expect some disappointment, but the first 4 seasons is some of the best tv you can watch
@coo111, while the end of any story is important, it’s not the meat of the story. You go to a fancy place to eat, you get an appetizer, it’s pretty basic but it’s not the filling kind of app, it’s the kind that makes you want something more. Then you get a nice plate of whatever fancy food you like, it’s fantastic. Then the desert comes out. You expect something impressive after that main course, but instead you get a bowl of ice cream. It’s not your favorite flavor, but it’s not one you hate either.
That’s Game of Thrones. Season 1 is kinda boring and dry, but it’s needed for setup. Middle is fantastic. And the end is the end. It’s not what we wanted, but it is a direction that was 100% possible.
I’ve never seen an episode of Game of Thrones and I don’t really understand much about the ending, but I know a lot of fans were really disappointed. But would you still recommend? Edit: Getting some heavily positive recommendations so I’ll probably check it out, I’ve been interested for a little bit, so I’m glad to hear that it’s definitely worth it. Thanks!
@coo111, Definitely. Try to forget that you know that most people were disspointed by the end, the dissapointment was because the show was so unbelievably great that an average end seems like slap in the face, even if it wasn't actually that bad. If you're at interested in the genre, love plot twists and world building, and don't mind extremely dark/taboo/violent themes its a no brainer.
@coo111, Watch the first four seasons then assume the White Walkers invade and kill everyone before the fifth season.
@No Lollygagging, it was not an average ending lol the writing was HOT steaming shjt for that ending. If your argument was for why some were disappointed from season 6 through the battle of Winterfell in 8, I'd say you were right. But after that episode, literally not a redeemable scrap of writing occurred and all of it seeming to come from the imagination of a 14yo edgy boy who believes grim-dark means realistic haha
Still though, I'd personally recommend they give it a watch and just leave it after Battle of the Bastards in season 6 because it's just not worth it anymore
@coo111, everyone whines about the ending, but when she ordered the wholesale slaughter of completely random "masters" in one of the earliest seasons I knew she was going to live up to her ancestor the "mad king" in her own right
Ooooo I'm sorry the actual answer is The Elder Scrolls. Better luck next time.
Goerge R Martin wouldn've been up there with Tolkien if they hadn't destroyed GOT and just waited, his name was foerever soddened, very sad
This is like asking if Farenheit 451 is better than Code Geass, then someone answers with Blade Runner. It's a weird comparison.
What about Wheel of Time?
I mean the show's not out yet but the books are (in most part) great
@BBSGeek, very hard for some to continue such a long story. One of my favorites though.
That wasn’t the question.
Harry Potter beats GOT but LOTR beats Harry Potter.
@Nurse Joy, I wouldn’t say Harry Potter beats GoT. Unless you’re talking about Seasons 6-8
And in terms of fantasy books GoT is 2nd only to LoTR
Doesn't he really say Warhammer 40k?
@SeelenVerKaufer , nope. He says PC when asked if he plays The Witcher 3 on PS4 or Xbox
