Medieval Game of Thrones type game?

#1kingoffpsPosted 5/13/2014 10:03:07 AM
In the middle of marathon-ing through GoT again and I want a game that feels like this show's tone. RPG is ok as long as it's not Skyrim or something too heavily based on stat/inventory juggling. Sword fighting is a must. And not something which is so open as to have aimless wandering (like Skyrim). A tight single player game is what I'm after.

Mount and Blade with a mod.

Or if you wanna go more strategy gaming, Crusader Kings 2. CK2 also has a GoT mod.

Ironically, Skyrim was meant to be a Game of Thrones RPG originally.


Also, there is a Game of Thrones RPG that is like KOTOR that is pretty cool.

Life is normally too short to purposely seek out things you hate, but apparently that rule doesn't apply on the Xbox One board.

Also, going by your sig and proclivities, the GoT RPG I mentioned is very niche so your pseudo-hipster cred will be intact.

The Witcher 2 felt very GoT-esque to me. Mature, politically driven story, conservative use of magic, strays from stereotypical fantasy concepts, and the combat had a feel to it that would be right at home in a GoT episode.

If you are interested in politics and stuff ala game of thrones with conspiracies and a lot of great events that are cool then I would suggest Crusader kings 2 plus each and every DLC plus there was a GoT mod and I don't know how it is now but the last I check it was still supported.

But since you want a more action oriented game go with mount and blade warband + A clash of kings mod.

I will look into The Witcher 2. I haven't played either of them. Are they heavy on stats and inventory management or are they "dumbed down" style RPGs (which I prefer because I'm a ******)? I'm not a fan of RPGs which are basically number games where you spend 60% of your time managing +4 defense against -3 dexterity, vs. +10 weight vs. -4 against poision vs. +6 against one handed etc (you get the idea). Then there's the levelling systems.... dear god lol.

Thanks. I'll look into it :D

Witcher 2 is fairly accessible. The hard part of it comes from the gameplay. Fighting stuff can be tricky, the game is a little on the tougher side of things. It's not Neverwinter Nights D&D type of stuff. It's more like a grown up Zelda.

If that stuff scares you, steer far away from Crusader Kings II. Paradox Interactive strategy games aren't the easiest games to pick up. I don't know if the mod makes it any easier to get into, but the base game is fairly complex.
