What happens when you fuse the epic HBO fantasy miniseries Game of Thrones with the SNES‘ legendary flagship title Super Mario World? You get a freaking masterpiece, that’s what you get! While the above must-see video only covers the intro theme music to Game of Thrones, the quality is out of this world – both in sound and in visuals (Super Mario World’s map really was the perfect choice) – and already has me humming this retro, 16-bit remix in my head, probably all the way to work and back today. If you’re a fan of either GoT or stellar retro video games – which we are both – then you need to watch this video. As in right gosh darn now.
In my opinion HBO is the king of quality television. From Curb Your Enthusiasm and Entourage, to the insanely-addicting and ever-so-violent Game of Thrones, the premium cable network just continually surpasses my expectations. While I am sadly behind on my Game of Thrones episodes, it is a show that is quite possibly the best on television, period. I remember nearly three years ago watching the show On Demand for the very first time, and thinking to myself as I fired up the sixth of seventh episode that I still couldn’t believe that I couldn’t keep up with all of the character’s names and relationships – the show, and the setting was that massive, but it was so damn good I didn’t even care. Next up for me are the books – not to mention catching up on the show; next up for you is this awesome video, which showcases every single on-screen Game of Thrones death in less than 3 minutes. Enjoy, and as always, more after the link.
