Kit Harington – known for his role of Jon Snow in the popular TV series Game of Thrones - played in a spoof in Saturday Night Live (SNL), parodying stereotypes from video games. The actor takes on the role of an NPC stubbornly vexing the player with subsequent dialogs, effectively distracting him from the attempts to fight the zombies.
The amusing clip was clearly inspired by the Tom Clancy's The Division 2 online shooter - both in terms of the atmosphere and the depicted problem. It is worth noting that in a recent update, the creators have reduced the frequency of shouting at the protagonist by NPCs, which was caused by players complaining about this aspect of the experience.
Do you think the problems shown in the SNL spoof are true? Do you sometimes have the impression that the game tries to distract you from the action or that the dialogs are mundane?
We would also like to remind you that Kit Harington will return to our TV screens on 15 April - along with the premiere episode of the last season of the Game of Thrones.
