The Hype Around Fantasy Games

Fantasy has always been a genre that has a considerable fanbase, particularly in the literary world. However, that enthusiasm has now carried over into online digital gaming. There are now a plethora of games available to suit all ages and tastes. They are a far cry from the simple Dungeons and Dragons adventures of yesteryear.

The Lord of the Rings

Undoubtedly one of the most popular fantasy novels ever written, this classic book by J.R.R. Tolkein, has not only reached the big screen, but Middle Earth is now recreated in an online digital game. Initially released in 2007, the hype surrounding this game is still unparalleled even today. Many expansions have been released, with hints of more to come.

Alternative Choices

There is no shortage of choice for any fan of this type of online game. Some of the biggest hype surrounds World of Warcraft, the massively multiplayer game, which is the highest-grossing game of all time. Other options include Elder Scrolls, which is an open-world fantasy game, first released in 1994, but no less popular today. Those who prefer something more sci-fi will no doubt enjoy Doom, a first-person shooter, with a horror theme.

Online gaming is here to stay, and each new release is eagerly anticipated, with much hype and speculation on social media platforms. 2020 is shaping up to be an epic year with the likes of Doom Eternal, Diablo IV, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps expected to hit game consoles any time soon.
