Oh God, the Lego Lord of the Rings Game Looks Precious (PRREEECCCCCIIIIIOOOUUUUSSSS)

Travelers Tales released what I believe is the first trailer for their Lego Lord of the Rings game, and it might have just beaten Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes for my Most Anticipated Game Based on Building Block Toy Versions of a Nerdy Franchise. Kotaku has some details on the game — it sounds like it’s going to be a little more adventure-y and puzzle-y than the more action-y Lego Batman games — complete with quests and side-quests, even. All I know is that if Gandalf doesn’t cast a giant Lego brick for the Balrog to step on, and then fall off the bridge while recoiling in pain, a beautiful opportunity will have been missed.
