Do you actually enjoy the lore?

I probably like it less now that I know more of it. It's not bad, but there's a lot of concepts involved that I find stupid, either a) because they have absolutely no relevance to the games themselves, or b) because they are just a stupid idea. Also, the lore seems to be lacking in likable characters. I can't bring myself to care much for a universe where literally everyone that matters is a huge ass-hat.

But it has it's upsides too. It may not be my favorite fictional universe, but I still find it interesting.


Not a Song of Ice and Fire fan I'm guessing? Lol.

Good to see this back on track.

I like the idea of the flawed character, be it pro/an-tagonist. It makes the character appear human. Or Mer, as the case dictates.
It's appeals to my baser instincts.

And I would actually eat at Hooter's once, to see that.

It's probably because all the silly little children who dislike Reb have bedtimes.

Somehow I read that as "eat out hooters" or something, and that sentence suddenly seemed very different.

Oh, ASoIaF, how I hate thee. Try massive overdose on Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy. After the last one I read (fairly sure it's the latest, think it was Feast for Crows), I had an Eight Deadly Words moment and decided "Screw this" after the author killed off Jon Snow, the only character I even liked anymore, and asked myself; "Why am I still reading this?" And then I realized:

I don't care what happens to these people.

And then I decided not to read that stuff anymore, and subsequently read several much better works, which have an actual plot instead of "These people exist, and their lives steadily get worse until they die, unless they're an amoral a-hole, and even then."


...*sigh* Sorry about that little rant. Suffice to say, works in which angst and everything being terrible (without either of those problems being resolved at some point) are the main attractions are not ones I like. I can see that ASoIaF is an excellent work, seeing as it manages to effectively juggle stupid amounts of protagonists to present a living, changing picture of the world as a whole, astonishingly without neglecting any of them, but that doesn't make me hate it any less.
