Game of Thrones on Commodore 64 is so Crunchy it Makes my Teeth Hurt

It's the fake intro and menu system for a C64 adaptation of Game of Thrones that lures you into this clip, but once there, it's the music that really kicks your ass.


As any chiptune or C64 nut will tell you, the system was capable of some of the crunchiest effects the 1980s could muster, and they're in full force here as the show's theme song breaks down then wanders so far north of the Wall it's a wonder it ever found its way back again.

Also: bonus points for making Epyx the developers.

The C64 was my introduction into gaming. A lot of games took advantage of the scrolling text on the bottom, though my first encounter with that text was a cracked copy of Boulder Dash 2. That rendition of the iron throne would've been impressive for the time, and the music was great.
