Back when we started seeing screenshots and hearing talk of Cyanide's RTS Game of Thrones: Genesis, there was a fair amount of skepticism about the game. Each time we posted about it, folks would express doubt that this game was accurately channeling George RR Martin's fiction, or the HBO series that it has inspired.
Part of the issue was that it was an RTS, a type of game that doesn't lend itself to the sort of political machinations and storytelling that make George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire books so much fun. I even wrote a post titled What a Better Game of Thrones Game Might Look Like, where I opined that the closest thing we'd gotten to a Game of Thrones game was BioWare's Dragon Age: Origins.
