  1. This game is really exciting but the newly revealed look for Gollum just is not it I'm sorry. It doesn't look all that great and sticks out terribly from the rest of the world and its characters.

  2. Ok so a couple of things to unpack here:
    1) what is up with the voice? So many people out there who can do almost perfect Gollum impressions, and this is what they went with?
    2) what is up with the animation? Gollum looks like he should be a character in a Tim Burton animated film whilst everything else looks really realistic. How can the graphics in a 20 year old film be better than a video game trailer in 2021? Like was this a deliberate design choice?
    3) Gollum’s voice and animation in Shadow of Mordor was way better than this and that came out in 2014.
    4) I am curious as to what kind of gameplay this will have. Like, if it’s a stealth game, then I can see it working. Not sure what the combat will look like, but it’ll have to be careful.

  3. I'm honestly hopeful. I've saved, conquered, pillaged, and sliced through Middle Earth so many times in so many different games. What I'm saying is, I'm not against a story set there that's not some large, epic quest – there are plenty of other games for that.

  4. You know what, I like who ever did the voice for Gollum in this. The distinction between him and Smeagul is well done, considering we're going to be spending the whole time stalking about as him.
