Abandonware DOS title

Games set in the Lord of the Rings universe

The Lord of the Rings is perhaps the most read fantasy novel of all time and the most important one. I dare to say that Tolkien, who also wrote The Hobbit and other novels, was the most influential fantasy writer ever existed. Even before the Peter Jackson movies, there were quite a few The Lord of the Rings (and The Hobbit) licensed games, published for more than a few platforms, including DOS of course.
