Why is this not happening? I know there is already a PS2 version but I don't see why they aren't making a game to tie into the movies. Hell, even a Lego game would be awesome.

What do you guys think?

I really liked that Hobbit game that came out in 2003.

Lego does have the Hobbit brand (Hobbit lego sets are out most places i think?). Am guessing a Lego Hobbit game, or two, is inevitable. They've got the LOTR Lego game out to tie in with the new Middle Earth movie.

But on top of that, I'd say just leave it alone. No one needs more mediocre games based on classic properties. I mean what would you want? Open world first person? Third person action? Side scroller? (wait... that, and/or point and click adventure.... hmmm....)

Telltale should make a point and click hobbit game! :D

@NekuSakuraba: Was actually the first thing that popped into my mind when i read your post. Just something with a different flavour. Anything but a bland third person hack and slash. Then I think there'd be some room to do something pretty neat.

If they were to make a movie tie-in game based on the new Hobbit movie I'm almost 100% positive that it would be garbage.  
There hasn't been any good movie tie-in games in the past 25 years so I don't see how this could break that cycle.

Here you go.

Absolutely. And I'd still rather play through a series of snapshots taken from the film, if they could at least give it some clever trappings, than some goofy half assed actioner.

Well there is an "The hobbit: Battle of the five armies – Fight for Middle-earth" game out on Android and Istore and i guess thats the platform to put out such games nowdays.

I just read an review in my local press and they called the game a rip off despite it being a free game so there you have it.

Not that old. Came out in April in 2014.
