LOTRO Is Golden

By Jim Rossignol on October 27th, 2007.

The winner of the PC category for game of the year at the Golden Joystick Awards went to, you guessed it, The Lords Of The Rings Online: Shadows Of Angmar! Oh, you hadn’t guessed? Well you’d be forgiven – it’s one of those reader’s votes things, and it seems The Lord Of The Rings Online remains extra specially popular with a huge swathe of the PC gaming populace. LOTRO beat World Of Warcraft: Burning Crusade, Football Manager 2007, Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow Of Chernobyl. It was 2007: The Year Of The Colon.

And here’s an orc, celebrating:

Needless to say, RPS will be holding its own highly sought-after PC gaming awards towards the end of the year, and I’m not anticipating Lord Of The Rings Online doing quite so well in that… I wonder if we should have a Best Peggle category?

In the meantime: are you a LOTRO stalwart? Can you play a virtual lute? Speak up, and tell us why Shadows Of Angmar deserves its joystick.
