LOTRO Is Golden

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.

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.
