    BTW, it's amazing how little-known or at least little-discussed this game is on the Codex.

    Pity it didn't happen. Following too closely the book's plot is the worst part about this game.

    I wonder how many historical materials have been thrown to trash cans in this industry. :roll:

    LOTR Vol 1 was one of my first RPG. I will always remember it fondly and I really mean to replay it. I understand it's pretty meh when you know of other games, but I had no knowledge of Ultima or anything back then. The world felt huge to me, and that you could different approaches to solve one problem was mind blowing to me.

    I was ... 9 or 10 when I started playing and could hardly understand english. I owe this game a lot. I actually started playing it before reading the book ; I'm not sure how old you guys were when you read it but reading it LOTR at 10 was an exceptional experience for me. I am pretty sure I owe this book my love of reading and writing since nobody actually reads books in my family :(

    I still re-read it once in a while and it's always a great experience, even knowing the story by heart. It's really more about the travel and the characters than it is about the story. LOTR is pretty great litterature and you guys are pretty shitty to call it dated :(
