Potshot on LotRO
Potshot has a very readable and nice series of impressions from the Lord of the Rings Online beta here, here, and here. He calls LotRO "WoW for adults", and I think he could be right in that the game might have a bigger appeal to a slightly older set of players. Starting from the fact that the younger players probably never read the Lord of the Rings. But also because LotRO is more about living in Middle Earth than about pwning mobs and other players. Being no spring chicken myself any more, the idea of games targeting another audience than kids appeals to me. People like me grew up with games, but we'd like our games to mature with us.
