LOTR in my book takes the cake

Sold my lotr to buy a hobbit. I missed lotr terribly. I bought another lotr a couple months later.

Every time I think of selling LOTR this is what I worry about even though I don't currently play it all that much.

I have both and they are just totally different games. For the money, I feel like the hobbit is a better buy. I will say hobbit gets the most time, but can't go wrong either way as I went from 8 to 2 machines and neither of these will ever leave

LOTR. Hobbit is a really good game. But LOTR is a really great game. Your play feels like it means more on LOTR. Hobbit can feel a bit like a grind, and there is no individual element that puts it over the top. The modes are points based, so you don't get the real feeling of accomplishment. But on LOTR, the layers of play all come together. You are rewarded differently for different aspects of play. There is a big difference between starting and finishing a mode or a multiball. And you're not getting to the wizard mode without finishing them. But you can get to destroy the ring or TABA. Look, LOTR has stood the test of time because of the amazing software in it. It can be played with many different objectives. Hands down the better game.
