Lord of the Rings reference in the Witcher 2

Hello guys,

I hope someone played the Witcher trilogy.
I've found a Lord of the Rings reference in the Witcher 2 in Vergen when Saskia has been poisoned and Philippa, Iorveth and Geralt talk. Philippa mentions the twenty rings from the LOTR. The reaction from Iorveth and Geralt seemed a little bit mockery. (They translated well, I've checked it.)

'Iorveth: One to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them...
Geralt: Right, and then I'll have to run bare-footed to the top of a volcano...'

Yes, the Witcher is darker than the Lord of the Rings but the LOTR is also a masterpiece and it also has a dark mood.

What do you think about it? Is Geralt's sentence disrespect towards Frodo or I've overreacted it?

Videos about the reference:

I've not got all the way through the Witcher 2 yet.
Loved the first game.
The second and third are a bit complicated for my fingers to get going on.
Love the books, btw.

As for the reference to LOTR...
I have no problem with it.
I think it's a compliment.

i can't recall if there are any LOTR references in the Witcher 3, but there are certainly Game of Thrones and Star Wars references.

Witcher 3 is my favourite computer RPG of all time.
