12 – It’s Canon To The Show
One of the main selling points that Telltale used to develop and eventually market this game was the direct canon to the HBO series. Whereas their already released “Walking Dead” games (3 so far) are all canon to the comic books and not the AMC television series, for “Game Of Thrones”, the game follows the same universe as in the HBO series and not the George RR Martin “A Song Of Ice And Fire” book series. As of Season 6 of the show, many differences between the books and Game of Thrones exist, some good, and some not as good…
Now not only is the story canon to the show by itself, but the main actors of the show have also lent their voices and appearances to the game itself, making the canon connection even more official. These include Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Lena Heady (Cersei Lannister), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) and Iwan Rheon (Ramsey Snow).
