It's the biggest thing in fantasy, and right now, with the possible exception of The Hunger Games, the biggest thing in entertainment, especially with its second season about to kick off this weekend. So why has George R R Martin's Game of Thrones series been given such short shrift by video game publishers and developers?
While HBO's TV series exploded onto the scene last year, gathering the tale millions of new fans, it's not like it had previously been some obscure little book series. What was once known as A Song of Ice and Fire has been a very big deal for well over a decade now, with a novella based on the first book winning a 1997 Hugo award and the second, A Clash of Kings, making the New York Times best-sellers list. Things only got bigger from there.
