Author George R.R. Martin writes on a DOS word processor, so it makes sense to watch "Game of Thrones" with a 8-bit soundtrack and sound effects, right?

Nothing is more fun for us elder gamers than watching shows like "Game of Thrones" get the 8-bit treatment or have the show's theme song played on a NESKeytar, but now fans have reimagined the popular fantasy show with old-school gaming sound effects.

In this fan-made video, Youtube user Ozzy Man posted this "Game of Thrones" Season 4 Retro Gaming Style video with the human dialog and normal sound effects replaced with 8-bit gaming sounds and music. There's subtitles added for those of you who don't naturally speak NES.

If you haven't watched Season 4 of "Game of Thrones" yet, be aware the video features spoilers galore. Since this is "Game of Thrones," the video does contain graphic violence and some nudity, albeit with retro sounds.
