Game of Thrones RPG

Could be a good one... I kept thinking through the first book and the first season of the HBO series that it seemed like an RPG.

I was kind of excited about this game, being an avid fan of the books. But it's getting terrible reviews.

Not sure how it could be getting terrible reviews since it hasn't even been released yet. Shipping dates right now are 5/15/2012.

Maybe you're thinking of the Game of Thrones: Genesis which was released in 2011 and definitely did not impress anyone. It's an RTS game, not an RPG. Unfortunately Cynanide did both games, so there is definitely a "wait and see" attitude out there.

I guess you're right.
