As someone else said, they're very different shows. I'm a huge Lost fan, and I think the show is definitely worth watching. It doesn't have the epic scope of Game of Thrones or some of the labyrinthine plotting. But it's an absolutely fantastic adventure show. It starts out with what was then the most expensive pilot in tv history. A plane, flying from Australia to the US crashes on this seemingly deserted tropical island. The diverse cast of characters soon discover odd things on the island, including a weird "monster" apparently living in the woods, a strange radio broadcast coming from the Island's interior, and eventually a secret hatchway hidden in the jungle. Over the coming seasons the show explores more and more of the island's strangeness. At the time it provoked the same kind of obsession that Thrones did, and also some of the same annoyance, particularly with the idea that it didn't answer its various mysteries in a timely fashion. I think the final season of Lost was better received than the final season of Thrones, which has been pretty controversial (aside from the epic battle of Winterfell). But the finale of Lost was controversial, although for different reasons than the Thrones finale. I think that many people were left unsatisfied by the Thrones finale because they didn't buy the 11th hour change of Dany into a villain ansd because they didn't like the choice of Bran as the new King. Most die hard fans seemed satisfied with the Lost finale, but there was controversy because the finale ended up being more about an emotional conclusion for the characters rather than a plot payoff where lots of mysteries were solved.
