GoT is a lot less fantasy than LoTR. It's basically just a medieval story in an alternate world + some magic and dragons.

Low-Fantasy. Yep.

And as much as I love the actors that were picked, to anyone who wants to experience the story of Westeros (yeah, I know), then I highly reccomend the books over the television series. The television series, while good, doesn't give nearly the same feel as reading a carefully composed piece of art. For example, episode one of Game of Thrones was about fifty pages (on a very large sized book)

All personal preference though, of course. To be honest, it's worth watching just to see Joffrey cry.

Idk if you've read the books but the later it gets the more important magic and fantasy things become

I said it's less fantasy than LoTR. I didn't say that it wasn't a fantasy.

In my opinion it is as much fantasy as LoTR but in a different way

It isn't conventional fantasy which people have come to expect when they mention the word. All of that is under the skin in GoT; whereas in LoTR you have dwarfs, elves and other crazy **** out in the open where all humans have acknowledged these creatures.

GoT's the humans who believe magic is still real and present, and don't live in Essos, are considered crackjobs.
