College Humor has posted a truly fantastic video called "Game of Thrones RPG," which re-creates the entire first season of the multiple Emmy award-nominated HBO fantasy series as if it were a video game from the Super Nintendo era.

You guys, it's so rad. So. Rad. Obviously, it contains a ton of Game of Thrones spoilers, so if you haven't watched the show yet, you probably want to do that first. (Wait, you haven't watched Game of Thrones? What are you doing? You should totally watch it, it's really good! No, really!)

High points from the video include include a Drogo-sex minigame, a dramatic turn of events for Tyrion, and nice trip to see Jon Snow on the wall. Ah hell, just watch it:
