Why Developers Need To Leave Game of Thrones For A While ::Proven Gamer::

Over-saturation has been the oldest, and most annoying habit of developers in the video game world, and it has been a trend to ride successful franchises into the ground. The latest victim to fall prey to this dangerous habit, has been the Game of Thrones series. Read on to find the classic mistakes made by developers when riding on the names of big franchises. (A Game of Thrones, A Game of Thrones: Genesis, Culture, Game Of Thrones Seven Kingdoms, Industry)

I disagree,what we need is a good developer to produce a solid quality rpg based on Game of Thrones.

I would agree but if people keep running these games into the ground we won't get a good developer onto the series cause it wil be dead.

That's true, but no one can make a good RPG in one year, you need a nice long development time to really get a solid backstory and game mechanics down.

GoT is really popular now so I don't think they will leave it be. This GoT game was a shameful attempt at milking the franchise.

I think that the next GoT game should be similar to the Elder Scrolls games.

I could also imagine a strategy game based on GoT.

It won't ever happen and this is why. When developers create a new ip, the hardest thing is to gain name recognition or popularity for your world. How rare is a good game translation? Batman and star wars. If something already has name recognition, it's easy to be swayed by the quick Buck. Now, the creators may want to make a wonderful RPG, but after a couple years, the publisher grows tired and wants money and it gets released.

To compound the problem, game of thrones is awesome. Making a video game that meets the quality of storytelling is near impossible, and without a great story, it's simply another RPG in westeros. I agree, leave game of thrones alone for now.

They should give the franchise to Bethesda. They will do it justice.
