Skyrim Rendition of Game of Thrones Intro is Suitably Amazing

My inner fanboy is just about going crazy right now.

The video, titled simply "Thrones," takes the iconic Game of Thrones show intro and puts it in the context of Bethesda's RPG, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Its creator, Brady Wold, worked on the animation for over two years, adding to it here and there in his free time—working on it for "thousands of hours" in total. Well, I can safely say it was worth it.

Very few things are truly worthy of being described as "epic," but this video is one of them. Bravo.
