Hilarious RPG Version of HBO’s Game of Thrones

While I’m not sure it captures the drama and epic scale of the HBO series, CollegeHumor.com has created a video that provide a hilarious tongue-in-cheek version of the first season of Game of Thrones in the form of an old school RPG.

There’s something brilliant about the translation to an 8-bit RPG here – lines like “A wild BRAN spotted your incest…” are written exactly the way you would expect from a game like Final Fantasy, even if FF wasn’t generally referring to sleeping with your siblings. When I see something like this I always want to go play ChronoTrigger or one of its brethren.

Whether or not you get wistful for some good old school RPGs, check out the video after the jump for a couple of laughs.
