    I never would've expected From to land the inevitable ASOIAF game. At first glance I was appalled, but am warming to the idea.

    Here's what From does very well: environmental storytelling, atmosphere, action, and Gwynevere's titties.
    Here's what an ASOIAF game needs: environmental storytelling, atmosphere, action, everybody's titties, and a coherent adaptation of source material.

    That last one is a big fat question mark, but we'll see. At the very least, I expect it would be extremely fun to roleplay as the Mountain. Of course, I'm basing my thoughts off the assumption that this article is anything other than fake news.

    There's a huge marketing push for Game of Thrones. Anything game of Thrones will be pushed on the unwitting masses who "nerd out" on "geeky stuff" like Game of Thrones.

    I expect the game play to be as deep as a Walmart parking lot puddle.

    The whole "article" reeks of "we totally love Souls games", combined with "isn't GRRM great, fellow gamers?". Yeah, I can see everyone jumping onto it in the current gaming/nerd climate.

    Another article I read sounded like it's a new world and IP that he's writing, not an actual Game of Thrones game.

    George R. R. Martin is not a good writer. Has anyone here read his novels? They're terrible. This shouldn't be a selling point.

    Yeah. I don't think this is real though. Sounds like some stupid fucking fan speculation.

    There's no one left at From to make another Armored Core tho. Most of the old guard who made those games have left the company.

    A George R.R. Martin Game
    Produced by George R.R. Martin
    Written by George R.R. Martin
    Directed by George R.R. Martin
    Starring George R.R. Martin
    Featuring George R.R. Martin from Devil May Cry

    George R.R. Martin is a good writer because he's published what he's written. The quality of the words do not matter when you transcend authorhood and become marketing meme.

    'Terrible' is most of the stuff that doesn't get published (70s shlock like the the first Sword of Shanarra book for the sake of perspective). Martin's books are objectively competent.

    His main 'weakness' as a novelist is his background in television writing, which causes him to rely excessively on twists, melodrama, and sudden reversals of fortune (which people mistake for gritty realism, fog of war, and the sometimes chaotic character of ordinary life) that postpone any feeling of dramatic payoff for getting invested in a situation or character -- whole series is just a big punt (dragons not getting to Westeros is just a small part of a much more ubiquitous issue).

    Contrary to popular belief, Game of Thrones isn't any more realistic in any sense than say Lord of the Rings.

    It's possible GRRM is a poor writer, but he most certainly wasn't when he wrote the first three ASOIAF books.

    I find the 'terrible is the stuff that gets rejected' argument pedantic, I think it goes without saying that I'm adjusting the scale to encompass published works only. By that logic you could say nothing is terrible when you compare it to Bobbys fifth grade writing assignment.

    You are free to choose your own word and if you enjoyed those books, good for you. I found them bad enough I almost couldn't finish them, which is rare for me. I had greater respect for the TV scriptwriters after I read the novels for being able to turn that material into something good for TV. The show goes downhill after a few seasons as well.

    George R.R. Martin has always been a good, solid, competent author of fantasy-SF themed novels and shorter works, starting with the sentimental "For A Single Yesterday" (the first story I read of his) that broke away from the Tolkien mold but I have never read a single Game Of Thrones story. I'd hate to know what some of you naysayers who consider him "a terrible writer" think is great *shudders* We should cherish George because let's face it - he's not going to live much longer. I mean, look at him! The man is a walking diabetic clot just waiting to decay!

    GRRM has reasonably good prose, decent plots, good characters, and kind of crappy, lazy worldbuilding. In my opinion. His fantasy novels are ok. They're not bad, you may as well read them if you've nothing else available. In contrast to something actually shit like Malazan where reading them is worse than just sitting and staring at a wall.
