Caught Off Guard >> Humor from a Fellow Geek
But I was a bit surprised to see Lord of the Rings/Middle Earth as an overdone theme. Mostly because I'm surprised someone else agrees with me that LotR is getting long in the tooth. It wouldn't be so bad if there were more great LotR games -- but with so many mediocre games bearing that license (LotR: The Search, I'm talking to you), it cheapens the overall theme.
But Eric Mowrer's comment about it cracked me up. In fact, I'm still chuckling about it now as I re-read this:
Ok, Frodo took the One Ring to Mt. Doom and destroyed it. It was very very hard. There were elves. I get it.
Thanks Eric, for the best out-loud laugh I've had in a loooong time. I needed that. :)
