Lord of the Rings is a great brand regardless of the category you are referring to. From Tolkien books to Peter Jackson movies and more.
Referring to Lord of the Rings, people like poker immediately remember the trilogy of famous works directed by Peter Jackson. Trilogy The Hobbit was less famous then, but it was often mentioned by movies whenever it was good enough. As for the work itself, 150 million copies sold. The book became the second best-selling novel after Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities. Literature is great. Movies are great, but in the field of video games, from text-based adventures in the 80s of the text-based genre to video game titles. From MMORPG to RTS, It’s unfortunate not to get a few titles worthy of the elegant championship brand of Lord of the Rings universe.
Two unforgettable decades after The Hobbit’s success
Two open-world action guillotine games are Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Middle-earth: Shadow of War is probably quite good but do not forget that these two goods are Lord of the Rings storyline. Because the main character is a terrible structure. The storyline is not much involved in the novel’s primary content or the “unknowingly” type of book that sometimes reminds gamers of what will happen later in the story or movie. In this sense, the first “authentic” no fake 1 / fake two games based on Tolkien’s work was The Hobbit, a text-based game developed by Beam Software in 1982. As the name implies, text-based is a game of the early age when taking the player to a pure adventure belonging to the category of words, and the rest will depend on the imagination of the one who is experiencing fly far.
Today we may be unconscious because the images are made up of words in The Hobbit, but the game won the business’s critical success at launch. Unable to find such a dug up, Beam Software quickly went to jail and added two other brothers and father to grandfather with The Hobbit, mainly based on the next two volumes in the Lord of the Rings series. However, both of these games were not as successful as their predecessors. Critics criticized this rather heavy pit as they did not maintain the necessary appeal while other more attractive, beautiful games were released simultaneously. It is unclear how much this flop weighs, but it wasn’t until the 90s of the last century that some developers with the mind but the force could not combine Lord of the Rings with the tactical and role-playing genre. Unfortunately, they also quickly “clicked” without leaving a bit of echo until Hollywood used their magic wand to turn the Lord of the Rings brand into “solid gold,” both literally and figuratively in the early 2000s.
A piece of cake being split early does not help anyone full.
The 2000s saw the brilliant boom of the Lord of the Rings follow-up games. The books and the game’s popularity became known by Tolkien thanks to the film’s horrific effects. The amount of money rising very strongly made game production units with the copyright of God of Ring standstill. Sierra Entertainment has acquired the rights to make games based on the novel Lord of the Rings, while Electronic Arts have won the rights to produce games based on the film directed by Peter Jackson. This is a bad sign when Sierra must be careful to avoid the character from being duplicated with the film, whereas EA only has the right to build the game based on the movie’s details. EA won thanks to Lord of the Rings’ success in the battle for market share: The Fellowship of the Ring. And Sierra is lost when it is impossible to find an effective way to convey the novel’s essence into their games.
Of course, the Lord of the Rings trilogy’s success and the fame earned the other studios from faltering in sight of the Sierra. Over 17 years, from 2002 – 2019, there have been more than 20 games from the follow-up to extras, including using the main content of Lord of the Rings released in many different genres, from fighting to real-time strategy until MOBA. These children also know how to play when they never follow an old cliché. Someone just used a few cut scenes of the movie, then exploited an entirely new path and failed. Some weaker people think that safety is above all, decide to stick to the novel’s plot from beginning to end, and then fall because not seriously considering the gamers’ taste. Looking at the goods that follow Lord of the Rings is that you cannot create a small echo, but that is not worthy of a great brand like Lord of the Rings. The situation only began to improve with the appearance of the duo Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Middle-earth: Shadow of War, but as mentioned above, it belongs to the Lord of the Outer Story.
How long did Lord of the Rings’ timeline last?
First, we need a specific frame of reference because Lord Ring is a series of fantastical novels that can be dissected for several decades but not done. After all, each person’s explanation is always different. If the reference system is the Middle-earth region, the timeline can be divided into four periods is acceptable. Still, if taking the Eä universe as the standard, Middle-earth is a part of that universe. Hacking the brain more than ever since Eru Ilúvatar created the Ainur, no unit can be measured. People often call this The Time Before the Creation of the World and the Beginning of Time (I don’t want to; I don’t think it is good to translate this sentence, so I would instead leave it alone to look dangerous.)
Summary of Lord of the Rings history includes the following stages:
- The Time Before the Creation of the World and the Beginning of Time
- The Years of Music
- The Beginning of Time
- Years of the Lamps
- Years of the Trees
- The First Age
- The Second Age
- The Third Age
- The Fourth Age
Accordingly, The Time Before the Creation of the World and the Beginning of Time is when Eru Ilúvatar created the Ainur. There was no history and no time, so who could imagine how many years it would be. , there are no exact figures for statistics. The Years of Music is more straightforward because this is like the formation and development of the Ainur clan’s worldview. Ainur was the first and the most superior race created by God Eru Ilúvatar in an ancient period before the world was formed. They are the primordial souls that exist with God, and together He created the world through Ainur’s Music. After making the heavenly kingdom Arda, many Ainur were present there to build and develop it. Among the Ainur, there were 15 people with higher strength than the rest. Fourteen of the great Ainurs founded the Kingdom of Valinor and are often called Valar; The 15th, Melkor, separated himself to follow a different path and became the first Dark Lord of the world. The lower rank Ainur is called Maiar.
The Beginning of Time is the 14th period of Valar on behalf of the merchant Eru to run the world and start the war with Melkor lasting from 500 VY to 3500 VY (Valar Years). If you already know it, Valar is the word to refer to the 14 greatest Ainurs who founded the Kingdom of Valinor. Ainur was the first superior son of God Eru. The 14 of them went to Arda to fight Melkor, one of their brothers. At Arda, 14, Ainur all lived together in a mysterious land named Almaren. Still, after that place was destroyed, they moved to the western continent of Aman and founded the Kingdom of Valinor. The early Valar had no specific form, but later they always transformed into the form of Elves or Humans. Humans or Elves see them as gods, messengers on behalf of God running the world.
The Years of the Lamps is a short period in the period of The Beginning of Time, so there is no specific name. Interested people can read The Silmarillion to read more. I do not mention it because it is too long and too confusing. It is only summarized that this period consists of events starting with the Valar’s construction of two north and south lights to light the Arda world until the Middle-earth was abandoned in darkness in 1900. VY to 3500 VY. Next is The Years of the Trees stage, known as the arrogant white crowd with long and pointed ears. This period lasts from 1085 YT to 1500 YT, or if the Valar calendar is still used, this is the 5000 year. Humans played an essential role during the events of the Lord of the Rings, but the ancestors of this species only woke up much later in the last periods of the world in Hildórien, the Far East region of Middle-earth. Humans also have other names given to them by other races, such as Atani, Hildor, Firimar (naked people), or Engmar (infected people).
Later their descendants called this the first year of The First Age, which lasted for 590 years. The second period began when Gil-galad, the king of the Noldor’s, created a new kingdom for his people in Lindon, northwest of Middle-earth. The Second Age lasted for 3441 years until Master Ring cut off Sauron by Isildur, the son of Elendil. The third period lasted for 3020 years. This is the period most remembered by the critical events told in the Lord of the Rings novels, such as two towers, the association of returning the ring, or the king’s return all took place in this historical period. It started because Isildur became king of Gondor and Arnor and ended when Bilbo, Frodo, Galadriel, Gandalf, and Elrond headed to Valinor, leaving Middle-earth forever. The fourth period has so few events that have been described and lasted for 121 years, most notably perhaps the story of Queen Arwen Undómiel, who abandoned the immortality of the Elf race to live earthly life with King Aragorn. , close your eyes, and die.
In summary, after nine essential periods, the timeline of Lord of the Rings from the measurement unit will be about 12,172 years. Still, The Time Before the Creation of the World and the Beginning of Time and The Years of Music doesn’t have a specific number, so who knows exactly how long it took Eru Ilúvatar to create the Lord the Rings world?
