With a universe so large, widespread, and well-known such as The Lord of the Rings, I can't help but feel disappointed with the current state of the IP in gaming. It is, perhaps, the most critically acclaimed fantasy tale in all of written history, yet the games based off this intellectual property are but mere dots in a vast landscape vehemently dominated by other, far more successful products. After reading the books and viewing the movies multiple times, it is with great sadness that I perceive its current situation, and can't help but wonder what it could achieve if it were to fall into the hands of a far more ambitious team.
I do not intend to convey resentment or anger towards The Lord of the Rings Online. It is its own game, bearing its merits and flaws. Yet, the image on the horizon of what a Lord of the Rings game could truly achieve perplexes me to wonder how such a vision has yet to come to fruition. Turbine's MMO does not face the most comfortable of situations, evidently, and as with all things, it will one day come to an end, but somehow I do not foresee such a conclusion arriving in glorious fashion, worthy of the game's title.
