A new massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) made by Turbine featuring the world of The Lord of The Rings by Sir John Ronald Reuel Tolkien also known as J.R.R. Tolkien. As known as LOTRO, the real name is The Lord of the Rings Online : Shadows of Angmar. The game features itself in Eriador (the region extending from the Shire to the Misty Mountains and including Angmar) where you can be one of 4 races containing the Elves, the Hobbits, Men and Dwarves.

This game could rival World of Warcraft and it is not as addictive as WoW yet. LOTRO will more than anything annoy you with all the different quests and deeds to accomplish, and if you ever enter the Shire, you will leave with a death wish for all those annoying hobbits who cannot do anything by themselves and must ask you to endanger you life for absolutely pointless thing, with useless food as reward.
Hobbit (NPC of the Lord of the Rings Online): Hello stranger, I killed a deer with my sling, but a bear came and took off with the deer carcass to the bears-den up north. Would you accept to go retrieve my precious sling?

You: What? But they're bears! They will tear me up and devour my corpse! Aw heck, I'll do it.

*Goes to the bear's den and comes back after many deaths and torn limbs.*

You: There! I have your sling! Now give me my reward!

Hobbit: Oh! Thank you stranger! Here are some boiled carrots for your brave efforts.
