Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor

Modern day power fantasy RPGs take their heed (at least in part) from Gygax and Arneson’s age-old pen and paper RPG, Dungeons and Dragons. There is a merovingian bloodline which can be traced between Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor and even modern hybrid RPG shooters like Borderlands, stretching way back to the original Dungeon Master’s Guide from… Read more »
