Lord Of The Rings fans petition to remake classic PS2 games.
At times, certain games bring back fond memories – for me, that list includes Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and The Sims 2. However, for many, it could also be a copy of EA’s classic The Lord of the Rings entries.
Admittedly, I never played these games myself, but I did watch my older brother enjoy them – likely while I was more focused on Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase (a great game at that age!). Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring was released first before EA took control for 2002’s The Two Towers and 2003’s Return of the King games; fans love all three titles equally, though many would like EA to revisit their entirety at some point soon with some even signing a petition in favour of doing just this!
Thibo V initiated this petition via Change.org by writing, “EA remaster classic LOTR games! As an avid fan of Lord of the Rings: Return of the King and Two Towers games, I would be extremely thrilled if these classic titles could be updated with modern graphics by EA!” Since launching its campaign last Friday (at which point 3,711 individuals had signed), thousands of signatures have already been collected – with 3,711 already signing so far!
Thibo V established this petition years ago; however, he recently provided an update: “Since my last check-up I noticed this petition had grown significantly larger; however, EA still have not responded to our pleas or petitions thus far so it should continue until they can no longer ignore us – therefore this petition will stay online as long as I possibly can – thanking all donors and supporters along the way!”
Fans’ efforts are truly admirable; this petition, although insufficient to convince EA of their need to create these remasters, shows fans’ interest in these titles – something EA should note as it sets a strong starting point for such projects.
