Game of Thrones Sets a New Standard for Epic Fantasy...

edited January 2015 in Game Of Thrones

With a Game of Thrones, however, he broke through the barriers of the fantasy genre, bringing to light a unique story-telling structure that is sure to set a new benchmark for future generations of fantasy writers. Perhaps the most interesting facet of the Game of Thrones is how Martin manages to create a world that is fantastical and realistic at the same time. While the setting has hints of magic, dragons, and otherworldly creatures, these are used more to enrich the world and the characters rather than to serve as the driving forces of the story.

Another intriguing feature of the game is its unique, character-driven nature. Instead of highlighting the fantastical elements of the world, director focuses on the human nature of its main players. A Game of Thrones is just that - a power struggle between four main families, the Baratheons, Starks, Lannisters, and Targaryens, who are vying for control of the Iron Throne in much the same way as War of the Roses. The story is told from the viewpoint of eight different characters that represent each of these families.

How to Avoid Spoilers on Game of Thrones:

  • Recognize what kinds of information can spoil the plot: It’s easy to forget that things that seem harmless can spoil the plot in the worst way. For example, a character that was always part of the previous seasons' promos doesn't appear to be in the most recent promotional materials, there's a pretty good chance that the character met with some sort of agonizing demise.
  • Get caught up: The web is absolutely full of information intended for people who are current with Game of Thrones and doesn't care to warn about spoilers for people who are a season or two behind. It's pretty much a standard practice for entertainment.
  • Avoid social media pitfalls: If you can't watch an episode as it airs in the Eastern US, avoid social media until you can view it. Even if your friends are careful to warn about spoilers, you may be subscribed to feeds that have other subscribers who do not avoid spoilers, or worse.
  • Be careful about who you discuss with: Not everyone has the brains to not spoil things - even after being warned not to. I recently had a conversation with someone who decided to tell me that he had a theory that he had come up with, but it turned out that he had gotten "his" theory off of the internet from people who had read the books and I now, not wanting to, know something about.

Game Of Thrones Might Give Us A Movie: Charles Dance makes a good point when he says that translating the dense and multi-tiered storytelling of Game of Thrones into a movie will be difficult - but allow me to take that thought one step further do we really need a Game of Thrones film? Sure, it would be fantastic to see the Seven Kingdoms up on the big screen.
