It was once the case that graphics card RAM wasn't super important -- as long as you had one or two gigabytes of dedicated video memory, you'd be right for most games. The last few days however have utterly wrecked this rule-of-thumb, first with Bethesda's The Evil Within recommending 4GB and now Shadow of Mordor requesting a massive 6GB for its ultra setting.
The worst thing about not attending E3 is missing all those surprise games. The ones that didn't get stage time at the major conferences. By all accounts Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was one of those games. Plenty that came back from the show seem to be raving about this game. For some, it was the best game at the show.
