Because it went off the rails according to some fans.

It’s rushed, it should’ve been two seasons.

It's rushed. A couple mediocre writing decisions. People always turn on stuff that is this popular eventually.

Betrayal to the fans, and I'm not joking. Watch for so long only to see character development and arcs to just be thrown out the window, Main Villain being treated as a joke, etc.

Because they threw away 67 episodes worth of character development and arcs.

Because its filled with plot holes, mistakes, inconsistencies, bad character twists and generally bad characterization of certain characters. At least that's my opinion and the opinion of quite a few people.

Because it betrayed everything the series had been about for its first four seasons. The process started during seasons 5 and 6 when D&D ran out of source material to adapt, but it became completely evident in Season 7 when Littlefinger's was killed by Arya after Sansa out-manipulated him. At that point, it became a generic fantasy story with the character's now able to do things simply because it made for a cool scene as opposed to the world having any consistent internal logic.

It was no longer a thrilling political character drama where everybody was at risk. It was predictable and, as a result, lost a lot of what made the show so great. This being the case, season 8 was never going to get back to the quality of previous seasons, but it might have given us somewhat satisfying endings to the character's story arcs. Instead they chose to wrap up the last two seasons in nearly the same amount of time as a singe normal season ( Season 7 and 8 together were 13 episodes while earlier seasons were 10 episodes each ).

This was likely done because D&D got an offer to make a Star Wars Trilogy for Disney and they wanted to finish off GoT as fast as they could despite HBO being opening to keeping the series going for much longer: http://www.appocalypse.co/entertainment/hbo-wanted-more-episodes-game-of-thrones-martin-season-11-12-13/

Because they wanted to copy Breaking Bad but ended up butchering all of their works in previous seasons.

Because they rushed the crap out of it. They needed a full season. The ending results of the characters aren’t that bad but they skipped so many steps for the characters to arrive there. A full 13 episodes would have made everything a kot better.

First of all I think it was nigh impossible to please everyone. But the execution was clumsy and contrary to what many say, I don't think it is the writing itself was the problem since many of the twists are pretty damn great on paper.

The final episode shits on the previous 2.

I liked the first 3 episodes yet I think the first two episodes should've been 3 episodes.
