They're completely different stories and worlds. LOTR is high fantasy, GoT is dark fantasy. It's like asking if Star Wars is better than Alien.
2017-09-25 21:57
well star wars is better than alien so

Which Star Wars we talking about here? Alien franchise vs Star Wars than yeah Star Wars wins, but the movie Alien is better than them all except ESB I think
2017-09-25 22:02
i disagree. it has been awhile since i saw the older star wars movies, but from memory i remember them being way better than alien

my personal opinion: SW 4-6 beats any Alien movies and other than that, I don't really care.

Can't choose man, I love Lotr for being so epic but on the other hand, I like Got because of the personalities and the darkness of the world
2017-09-25 22:02
Fuck it, I'll go with Lotr just because I like One does not simply memes

The comparison itself is a little silly, in my personal opinion... It's unfair to compare these two titles outright. LOTR obviously trumps all when it comes to fantasy epics with untold lore and story progression.

The lore isn't as expansive or as diverse, again the comparison is a little silly, as is the original outright in actuality. I do love the lore in The witcher franchise, however. Probably only Dragon Age is similar when it comes to fantasy, video game lore. Otherwise the greatest video-game story ever told is BioShock hands down.

There are Witcher books? I know there are comics, I didn't know there were books, so I assumed the games outright?

I'm surprised that so many people know about the game, but don't know anything about books. :(

You better to send your apologies to author of book series then. xD
2017-09-25 22:58
if you completed witcher games and want more lore the witcher books are the best dealer for lore, the witcher very much about the politics and economy but also with the monster
2017-09-25 23:00
the game is based on the books jonty, go read them they are like better than witcher 3

The sad thing is that the series changed so much to appeal to plebs that it became lotr and is now comparable. Low IQ entertainment.

I agree. I actually love LOTR but enjoyed GOT for entirely different reasons. Now both of them look like high fantasy action spectacles where as LOTR does this a million times better.

haven't read the books, only played witcher 3, great game
2017-09-25 22:18
GoT has to end before we can compare...if GoT doesnt have good ending 1 day then it loses. But if the story gets really good it could win. But right now it has just been seasons of fighting and no progress, and nothing really happens in 1 episode cause they show 500000 characters for 1 minute each

2017-09-25 22:20

cant compare a 80 hour show to "a" 10 hour movie. I suppose you could compare the books, but cuz ASOIAF aint done yet= still cant compare yet but ofc game of thrones iz better I mean we got SOOO faaking many more hours to enjoy + better graphics and shieeet now, iz really isnt a contest. Also just compare Eddard Stark to BOROMIR, BOOM 100% confirmed GOT iz better cuz ned>boromir HEHEHEESKDEEEEE. I suppose we could compare the last two seasons of GOT (which will be full fantasy/fighting pretty much like lotr) with le triology and then LOTR might actually win, but we gotta see how GOT finish iz firstly.

Lotr can even child understand, while GOT is more political, more smart with 1000000000 of eastern eggs and hidden meanings I don't even know how is it possible to compare Lotr to Got

2017-09-25 22:31
lotr is the classic and leads the way for more fantasy worlds to come. but i prefer GoT, the complexity of the characters is on a whole different level, there is no black or white characters they are all grey. and the dark adult fantasy world which feels "real" makes it better for me.
2017-09-25 22:34
Agree, much more realistic characters makes GoT better for me. Also a great story with surprising and brutal twists in it. Compared to GoT, LoTR is much more of a kids story.
2017-09-25 22:42
i love lotr too, and george rr martin said that asoiaf is highly inspired by tolkien's work, but he takes it to the next level of complexity

Sauron is the most boring villain. But I remember a night king flick.

GoT was great on the early seasons but lately it became rather predictable and cliche af. Can't really say anything bad about LotR, but still, i would rewatch GoT before rewatching LotR if i had the choice.
2017-09-26 00:37
LotR for normal people GoT for weebs
2017-09-26 04:31
Not even close. GoT not deserved to be compared to this master piece. It will never reach the same level. LotR (98.2%) > GoT (1.8%). Know your enemy in person, fags.
2017-09-26 04:33

2017-09-27 14:43
Damn, why to compare? Both histories are diferent and really good in the way it was meant to be, GoT is about plots and intrigue to achieve a goal, LotR transmits the sentiment of loyalty and comradeship (I hope i wrote this right) people feel while fighting for their purposes. Another huge diference we must take into account is the time at wich both books were written, GoT is decades younger, in a time were prostitution, tons of blood, homossexuality,... are all accepted in a fantasy book. Tolkien was bound to the moral rules of his time, LotR is limited in this way, but not less fantastic or well written I personally like more LotR, but I can't say one is better than the other.
