Game of Thrones: Ascent
Westeros is in the palm of your hand, if you've got the cash.
Game of Thrones is a veritable cultural phenomenon, and honestly, it's surprising that it hasn't received a mobile release until now. Now, the Facebook game-turned-free-to-play adventure Game of Thrones: Ascent is available to the masses. It might cost you a pretty penny to get fully invested in-game, but it's possible to have the Lannister experience with the budget of a wildling.
Your role in Game of Thrones: Ascent may be much smaller and less pronounced than that of a main cast member, but as one of the Bannerman you have room to grow and become entwined within your very own story. The dialogue written for major characters is the key to the show, and while the game doesn't feature much else beyond menus and strategy, individual personalities still shine through beautifully.
You'll need to collect resources throughout the game in order to eventually build up your own stronghold and army of Sworn Swords. Doing so is incredibly rewarding, especially involving flavor text from the Game of Thrones lore. It could have been devoid of these little aspects, and it certainly wouldn't have been as exciting or able to channel the feeling of actually being in Westeros in-game.
Game of Thrones: Ascent bares its free-to-play roots in a very, very bad way. Nearly everything you're required to do to advance in the story is gated behind a paywall and/or a timer. You may need time for a blacksmith to forge a sword, but there should be no excessive wait times for sending your Sworn Swords out on missions that would be, in reality, time-sensitive.
Honestly, these mandatory wait times alleviated only by shelling out more cash are the worst part about this otherwise fun and exciting entry into the Game of Thrones media umbrella.
Despite massive paywall and free-to-play problems, Game of Thrones: Ascent is leagues better than its console cousin, and could in fact flourish if some of its glaring F2P woes could simply be addressed. There's something awesome behind the veneer of awful, so it's still worth checking out if you've got a boatload of patience (or cash.)
