Recently I noticed Lord of the Rings Online was available in Steam so I downloaded it to see how the game had progressed. It sat idle for a long time as my Steam catalog grows at a rate faster than I can reasonably consume it. A day or so ago I headed back into Middle Earth to get my bearings on how the game had advanced in a few years. I noticed they tucked in some new graphics and quests I hadn't seen before. That said, the game is largely the same, just a few years worth of refinements mixed in.
Recently they released a Mac Beta client and I can say it works very well. If you are looking for a fun and accessible MMO you should check out LoTRO. The free to play aspect isn't annoying and I find myself more interested in kicking them a few bucks now than when I originally played. If you are interested in starting a character and want to play together join the Riddermark server.
