Also, I don't think there's ever been a consistent 1-to-1 matching of locations in the title sequence to ones depicted in the episode (not including the big three). bbjeg would probably know better, as I'm sure he's had to watch most of them to put these sequences together.
I already posted it before:



That's all of them.

Re: Game of Thones: Opening Credits Extended

bbjeg, I imagine then that it would be quite difficult to match those with whether they all appeared in the episodes they're featured at the beginning of. I'll be the first to admit that I probably won't have the time to check that myself and don't expect anyone else to. Maybe I'm missing something.

My mistake - I should have been more clear - I did mention "recently" in that sentence but that should likely have been put at the end of the sentence, with the implication that we have seen nothing of them since the final short scene where Roose elevates Ramsey to natural status by King's degree, yet the two locations continued to be shown several episodes after in the intro. Apologies for the confusion.
NDB. And to your (and DevilEyes') point, I don't think it's ever been that consistent, but I might be wrong. Braavos has appeared in multiple title sequences, while only scarcely being featured. I'm curious, can Braavos now be considered one of the regular title locations (ala King's Landing, Winterfell, the Wall), or is it more like the Moat Cailin thing?

Re: Game of Thones: Opening Credits Extended

Initially, I would say it's like Moat Cailin, being a one-off. Once Arya gets there, though, I suspect it will be an almost weekly setting. They were just a bit ahead of the game, with Stannis paying his visit to the Iron Bank in that one scene where it first appeared.

Re: consistency, I think they tried in the first couple seasons to have the intro track with the actual locations being shown, particularly due to its original concept of purpose. It started drifting noticeably in the 3rd season and even more heavily in the 4th. Winterfell, for example, has been shown in every intro, but hasn't been seen since Bran left for the Wall. We are shown its smoking ruins in the beginning to remind us of its fate.

That is awesome. I may have to reference this later, as I can never keep some of these places straight in my head.

Re: Game of Thones: Opening Credits Extended

The video uploaded was 720p, yet the largest size viewable is 360p. I hope that fixes itself.

Personally, I wish they had more places going to Pyke and Qarth.
