Check out this fan made “what if” opening sequence to the Game of Thrones if it had aired in the 80’s. I love how the video was made to look old from a VHS. This is the perfect depiction of the type of “cookie cutter” sequences that made up television in that era.
From the creator, “I did not made the visuals NOR the sound for this clip. I used the VHS intro made by Hunterlsanders and music by Steve Buzz, cut it a bit and uploaded for all to enjoy.”

“Nine noble families fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros. Political and sexual intrigue is pervasive. Robert Baratheon, King of Westeros, asks his old friend Eddard, Lord Stark, to serve as Hand of the King, or highest official. Secretly warned that the previous Hand was assassinated, Eddard accepts in order to investigate further. Meanwhile the Queen’s family, the Lannisters, may be hatching a plot to take power.” – IMDB
