That narrator's voice....I've definitely heard it before, but I can't for the life of me recall where....

I'd bet five dollars that Patrick genuinely didn't know this game was still running.

Man...people need to relax.

Yeah, I can fully believe that Patrick just genuinely thought this had closed up shop, along with City of Heroes and Star Wars Galaxies and that tier of MMO that doesn't make the headlines often.

Helm's Deep? I would have thought by now they would have started doing material from the third book.

Wait, it exists and never had helms deep until now?

yup, that's the real mindboggler here. What have they been doing for the last, what 7 years?

Not being Blizzard and having a nigh-infinite amount of ducats.

In addition, they've kinda gone the route of the recent Hobbit film(s), by having the story in LOTRO not follow exactly along the same route as the Fellowship, instead sending you all over the place, like to Angmar and waaaay up north to a damned cool arctic zone that's name is escaping me at the moment.

It seems like I can't go a single day online without someone being offended at something so minor. I knew the game still existed but I chuckled because I understand where he is coming from... some people just need to grow up.

I don't play LOTRO, but the sub-title was pointless and crude. Patrick is an established professional in the industry, and the aggressive replies to his comment are completely understandable. You have to take responsibility in your position, and if you're going to be negative about anything, be ready to invoke the feelings of people that have a personal relationship with the product. If you're going to sit there and try to impress upon the internet that you have never felt offended at a comment/joke aimed at something you care about; than either you're a sociopath, or you're lying.

On topic with the video, though, if I wasn't so involved in FFXIV:ARR right now, I would definitely jump in and play this. Turbine did a fantastic job with Dungeons & Dragons: Online, so I can imagine that a Helm's Deep campaign would be equally handled.

Of ALL The SHIT that is said on the internet this is it huh? I played this game I liked it quite a bit I DIDN'T know it was still going my Room mate saw me watching the video and He was like WHOA IS THAT LOTR Online, That game is still going? It was not an insult nor pointless and crude you guys are just a bunch of children crying about a one off comment that hurt no one.

This does exist, much like Gone Home shouldn't.

Giant Bomb doesn't post a lot of trailers, so I'm confused why they posted this one, if they are going to dismiss it as irrelevant.

I think the people defending the "joke" are worse then the people who think that MMOs on this site get shat on far more often then any other game. It was a dig on people who play games they dont like. That's fine. But for people to get but hurt that people called them on it is a bit odd...

Some other sub lines from the first page of videos.

Look at how dynamic that plant life is. JUST LOOK AT IT.

Some nerves were destroyed in the process of playing Outlast and Amnesia for nearly three hours.

Spend hours making your whip completely your own, then proceed to crash it into anything that moves.

The singer may be virtual, but the shame Jeff will feel after playing this game is all too real.

I'm sure piloting that plane is dead simple. I wouldn't crash it at all!

Vinny, Jeff, and Brad go to the moon to fight an underwear model with a hulking cyber arm. Yep.

Wait, Lord of the Rings Online still exists...?

The developer of Pocket Planes, Tiny Tower, and Nimble Quest is back for more of your time.

Drew jumps into the latest edition of America's Army to see if it's being all that it can be.

Destined to become Matt Rorie's GOTY in 2014.

Just in case you haven't been given enough reasons to finally try this crazy, awesome RPG.

Turning upside-down and dropping your bombs was a totally viable strategy in World War II.

If you're willing to fork over $16.99, you can start playing immediately.

Yet another beautiful looking 2D game from the company, too.

One of Vita's few big-budget exclusives is crossing over to PS3, Xbox 360, and PC next year.

Only one of them seems like a out right attack on the game to me. As to the others that replied. The only other one is maybe the singer joke...

this.

It's great to see all four people who play that game come to watch stuff on Giant Bomb and have a sense of humor...

I don't get it, what's funny about Patrick joking that a popular MMO is actually unpopular?

Is it ironic hipster humor?

Think of it as arguing with the guy who ran the local CD store. You might not agree with that guy but you have to respect that person on some level. Even if it is on some ironic "hipster humor" level... Also people shouldn't get so uptight on things. Just relax, it's only the Internet.

You would think Helms Deep would be the first thing you put into your Lord of the Rings game.

Yeah ... I was pretty sure it was already in there. Haven't really played LOTRO, but I was sure I had seen shots of that.

Then of course, it seems they only added the Riders of Rohan with last year's expansion, so ... I guess the game didn't include a lot of the content you'd think would be there from the start. ... Moria has to be in there, at least? Right?

The whole conceit of the game is that it takes place concurrent to the story of the LotR trilogy and focuses on a lot of non-Fellowship stuff, occasionally intersecting with that story. So the amount of leeway there has allowed the game to only recently start moving into the plot of The Two Towers.

I've never touched LOTRO but that sub-headline is fucking lame. It's exactly the same cookie cutter negativity that the worst Giant Bomb commenters do, and no staff member should stoop to that. If you want to make a clever joke, come upwith a clever joke, don't just post "huehuehue, people still play this?!" for the 10,000 time. That's some bottom-feeder, "Annoyed Gamer" bullshit.

I think we can all do better than that now.

As someone who regularly plays and enjoys Lord of the Rings Online, I can't believe how fucking thin-skinned everyone in this comment section is. Christ.

This is why everyone else thinks you're weird, MMO community.

@oueddy: there's making jokes and being funny and then there's a continued disdain for a entire genre just because you're not into it. If someone made a joke about "Gone Home" along the lines of "Oh look another pretentious indy game." or "Who would buy this game?" on this website the shit storm would be huge.

who honestly cares though? It's all opinions at the end of the day

LOTRO hasn't had any mainstream attention in quite sometime so for someone like Patrick to not know that it still existed isn't that farfetched....he doesn't like MMO's, so what? Just ignore the line of text he wrote and just watch the video

It is just opinion, he said his I said mine and you're saying yours.
