I have tried incredibly hard to love A Game of Thrones: Genesis. AGoT has so many great ideas it hurts to not love it. First, a little bit about my knowledge of the stories that inspired this… game. I know this will upset the diehards but I entered the world through the exemplary HBO series. I read the book along with each episode, making sure to stay just behind the current story. Then school started and my reading quickly turned to government and real history. I do love the stories, but Genesis does nothing to enhance my understanding of the world, for better or worse.
