GOT's impact on pop culture

The series created by Davida Benioff and DB Weiss had a great impact on popular culture worldwide. Video games, board games, costumes and countless memorabilia were responsible for transforming her into a marketing monster. 

In addition, the amount of opinion and debate forums that circulated during the last season's broadcast is also striking: everyone had a theory of each episode and especially the ending. 

There were bars that opened their spaces to watch the episodes, usually, one is used to following their favorite sports team in these places, but the expectation that was created during the week was so great that everyone wanted to see it live and celebrate or cry with other fans in a bar.
