Zodiac Eclipse Of Destructoid writes: As some of you have found out, I'm an MMO player. That's right, I buy a game so I can pay for the privilege of playing it every month. Now, this article isn't about MMO's or monthly fees, but since I'm currently hobbiting my way around Middle Earth, I've noticed a common trend in RPG's that pertains to this month's theme and I thought I'd share it with you all.
So for those of you who've never jumped on the MMO bandwagon, sit back, relax and allow me to take you through the epic journey you are missing out on. Those of you who have played MMO's are free to sit back and nod knowingly you've been there and done this more often then you'd like to admit.
LOTR starts off in standard MMO fashion, with the creation of your character. After all, the world does in fact revolve around you, at least for now. Once you've made your Middle Earth self and selected an appropriate name that fits the world (Ilovewaffles) you are ready to set off on your adventure through perhaps one of the most acclaimed story worlds in all of fantasy literature.
