How Game Of Thrones Ends Based On Computer Simulations

This article is amazing. I don't know what I expected but I did not expect to see Advance Wars being used to "simulate" GoT. Past that the writing is just fantastic.

I've never played that game, but I still enjoyed the article. Two lines in particular made me laugh IRL (though not out loud, because I tend to guffaw rather than laugh).

Spoiler: show
Ed Stevens wrote:The Starks get down to business, taking the walker threat seriously and acknowledging that having the realm's only line of defense against a terrifying supernatural horde be a collection of poorly-trained rapists isn't a great idea.


Ed Stevens wrote:The Lannisters are able to rally their troops and defend King's Landing, but at too much of a cost. The white walkers march to the Twins and start slaughtering them. It's unclear if the dying soldiers are able to grasp the narrative irony and thematic significance of being massacred there.

I remember the games being fun when I played them in middle school but i also remember not having too many problems beating them. I don't know if they would lose some of the fun when playing them now since they will probably be quite easy.
