Game of Thrones came to an end this time last year, and it's fair to say the reaction was mixed from the fanbase and critics alike. No-one seems to agree on it but it's certainly got the fanbase talking like no other season before it.

Thrones truly was game-changing. Not just in terms of fantasy, but television in general, pushing the envelope in many places in terms of violence, censorship and above all, storytelling. And as a wise man once said "there's nothing in the world more powerful than a good story". While it may have faltered in some places, Thrones will remain one of the best stories ever told.

Season 8 may have divided people when it came out but now that the dust has settled and everyone's had a year to let it sink in, the time has come to look back with objective eyes and see what the final season has given us. Were we right to be angry? Did the game end with the right people winning?

Here's 9 things we learnt one year on.
