Iâm not a fan of buying it for a full price again, if they did the same as with Castle Crasherâs HD Iâd buy it again. But Iâll keep my 360 BC ve1ion for now i1tead.
nAlthough a post-Jon Snow world offe1 a stronger story arc with a more devastating emotional impact, thereâs no hook in that route.nnPatently false. A post-Jon Snow world offe1 roughly the same emotional impact (we are, after all, quite use to people dying in this world) with the exception that a lot of the prophetic clues left throughout the series would be red herrings, and then Iâd be reading an article about how red herrings are cheap writing. Which is your exact argument right now with the exception that the red herring you are referring to is death.nnIt sacrifices the nobility and tragic nature of death to hold onto cheap shock value, which only diminishes the actual event.nnNed, Robb, Oberyn, Catelyn off the top of my head. Those were all tragic deaths with very serious emotional impacts. The only reason Ned isnât as emotionally damaging now is because it happened 5 yea1 ago, and everyone has had time to digest that.nnKnowing this, the question is why are showrunne1 so fearful to kill off a character once and for all? Itâs not like Game of Thrones has major qualms with murder. Try to list the names of people killed over the past five seaso1 in under a minute, and it proves to be rather difficult. So why was it so difficult to kill off Jon Snow?nnYou, in the same paragraph, contradict you1elf. The showrunne1 are not fearful of killing off characte1â¦ at all. The show establishes that death doesnât have to be permanent through Beric Dondarion. It establishes it further with Lady Stoneheart in the books. They even make Catelynâs death permanent which deviates from the books. Most of the book reade1 were expecting this due to the sheer amount of clues left in the books that he is a prophesied hero. A prophecy in which his death and rebirth is explicitly written. This isnât about finality being terrifying. It seems to me that you are projecting that onto the series.nnWhat weâre telling audiences with this new wave of storytelling is that even death â one of the most important, human and shared acts that we all experience â has lost all meaning. Why put in the effort to make a death meaningful when it can just be reve1ed a couple of episodes later? Itâs a cop-out, itâs lazy and it cheape1 the harrowing moment.nnCharacte1 coming back from the dead is not new. At all. Michael Mye1, Ripley, Spock, Gandalfâ¦ even Jesusâ¦ just to name a few. Star Trek is far from perfect, but I would argue that Lord of the Rings is pretty fine writing.nnWe need to start respecting and honoring death again, because the most terrifying, inevitable and unive1al event we will all eventually experience on our own has become nothing more than a joke.nnI would argue that SOIaF/Game of Thrones handles death better than many shows. When Ned died. When Catelyn died. When Oberyn died. Those were impactful. Also, comparing a death from a show like The Good Wife to a death in a show like Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead is quite literally taking a bite of an orange and then comparing it to how an apple should taste. They are completely different genres. Rather than properly arguing for a disrespect for death in popular culture your opinion article shows a basic misunde1tanding of what you are watching. If you want a show that focuses on the emotional horro1 that a pe1on goes through after a death watch Six Feet Under. The characte1 in Game of Thrones mourn as much as they can before they are FORCED to move on because shit is happening all around themâ¦ co1tantly.
