Game of Thrones changed television history. Today we look back at several video game battles that were similar to the ones in the Game of Thrones TV show.
3 Video Game Battles Like Game of Thrones
Some of the best battle scenes come from high budgeted Hollywood movies. Several of them became all-time classics. For example, who can forget the battles of Helms Deep and the Battle of the Minas Tirith from Lord of The Rings. However, these were movies with huge budgets, and we have never seen a TV show that came close to having quality battles like on the big screen. That ended when Game of Thrones came out. Game of Thrones battle scenes were not shown in the beginning due to budget constraints. However, as the show grew popularity, bigger budgets were used to create iconic battle scenes in Game of Thrones.
Until now, we have seen amazing battles like the Battle of the Bastards or like Battle of Hardhome. However, none came even close to the Long Night Episode which aired yesterday. This battle was the long-expected battle that fans have been yearning for. Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3 changed TV history without a doubt. We won’t go into more details as we are trying to refrain from spoilers. However, we can take a look at several famous video game battles that could be compared to the iconic Long Night episode battle.
Dragon Age: Origins Battle at Ostagar
The RPG game was developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts in 2009. Dragon Age: Origins had some of the best cinematics, specifically the Battle at Ostagar. The battle was between forces of Ferelden and The Blight. In this battle, we have seen a total defeat of the Ferelden forces with treachery. This battle with its cinematics reminded us of Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3 Long Night without a doubt.
Witcher 3 Battle of Kaer Morhen
Witcher 3 was an amazing example of how you should make an RPG game. Released in 2015 by CD Projekt, the game was well received by most players, earning high scores from Metacritic and IGN. The Battle of Kaer Morhen was a battle where the player was inside of the battle. Players had the ability to make decisions to change the outcome of the battle. The cinematics will leave you asking for more.
Lord of The Rings The Towers Battle of Helms Deep
Helms Deep is one of the most amazing battles from the LOTR video game series that we will never forget. Lord of the Rings is probably the most used concept for video games. Lord of the Rings The Two Towers video game was developed in 2002 by Electronic Arts. It’s an oldie, but a goodie. We get to see scenes from the movie, and the music is simply amazing. Like in Witcher 3, players are able to fight the actual battle in the game. Players can control Aragorn, Gimli or Legolas. It certainly reminds us of the battle scene in Game of Thrones recent episode 3.
Here we have 3 amazing video game battles that remind us of the battles we’ve seen in the Game of Thrones TV series. We hope we will see some amazing video game battles in the future, and perhaps the battle scene from Game of Thrones Episode 3 of Season 8 will influence future battle scenes in video games.
