Cool Videos: The 1990s version of Game of Thrones opening sequence is hilariously cheesy

Mar. 14, 2013by: Alex Maidy

The opening credit sequence has come a long way in the past few decades. Do you remember when THE X-FILES was cutting edge and unique? Man, those were the days. Today, an opening sequence is a thing of art (see THE WALKING DEAD, MAD MEN, BOARDWALK EMPIRE) and GAME OF THRONES is no exception. Everything from the music to the visuals are stunning and fit the tone of the series perfectly.

But, what if the show had been produced back in 1995? How would the opening sequence have looked then? This new video reimagines how GAME OF THRONES may have appeared almost 20 years ago. The results are pretty darn fitting. I am reminded of network series like ER and CHICAGO HOPE as well as fantasy series like HERCULES and XENA. I don't think the show would have garnered the same level of acclaim as it has today, but you never know.

Check out the awesome 90s version below.

Extra Tidbit: The VHS tracking bars are a nice touch.

Holy crap, that choice of theme song! Love the "unmastering" that's been done, it reminds me of the 80s-style Expendables trailer.

Joffery's real last name is Gleeson? Jack's full name is "Jackie Gleeson" hahaha

Jokes aside that was pretty awesome and dead on.

What? 1995? Come on, the opening sequence to shows like Tales From the Crypt & Twin Peaks (and yes, even X-Files) are all what shows today continually mimic.

Still, this video is funny. These cheesy opening sequences remind me of the old WB/CW's style of show openings. Shows like 7th Heaven, (insert other generic WB/CW crap show)....

Gotta go with The Walking Dead as the most believable. Reminds me EXACTLY of the intros for Stephen King's "The Stand" which my Mom watched endlessly on VHS when I was a kid.

The 90s now look like how the 80s looked in the 90s.

Fuck I'm old.

I think of it as the 90s are as far away today as the 70s were to me in the 90s
