I watch both shows. I have also read the source material of both shows. "Game of Thrones" the show is infinitely better than "Walking Dead" the show. It is in part because the producers of Game of Thrones decided to stick closely to the books, whereas the Walking Dead show producers almost immediately deviated from the books.
I'm in the same boat now (remind me later that I need to return the first GoT's book), and came to the same conclusion, though I think "Walking Dead" has done a decent job of incorporating the source material and getting back on track (as much as they can).
Not to say that "Breaking Bad" doesn't hold up, all three of these shows are stellar (go ahead and toss "Justified" into the mix as well). You could really make a case for whichever is your personal favorite.
