"Game of Thrones:" One of the most fascinating characters of the series, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage, top photo) more than makes up for a lack of height with a sharp wit and a scheming mind. "The Witcher 2:" The dwarf Zoltan (bottom photo), described as "a spiteful, aggressive S.O.B.," is not merely small like Tyrion, but part of a separate race of Dwarven people as found in fantasy tales like "The Lord of the Rings." VERDICT: Zoltan's role resembles the stereotypical drunken and dirty joke-telling dwarves from fantasy novels. His character doesn't quite have the immense depth that Tyrion shows. "Game of Thrones" takes this one.
