5 Video Games To Play If You Don’t Care About ‘House Of The Dragon’

We recently wrote about video games to play while you wait for the next episode of Dragon House or “Hot D” as everyone should just call it.

The best TV shows based on video games, ranked

It has been understood for a long time that TV shows or movies based on video games that have a large audience and fan base do not usually turn out well.
