Call of Cthulhu
For anyone who is into H.P. Lovecraft or roleplaying games this is definitely something you don't want to look over. It's like dungeons and dragons meets scooby-doo meets Lovecraft. This is what I spent my friday night doing and I am only slightly embarrassed by it. Typically the game is played as an investigative survival horror. In each scenario the investigators (players) somehow are lured into investigations of all kinds usually ending with a run in with one of the many creatures of the cthulhu mythos. Personally my friends and I play it with a much heavier comedy element most likely due to the fact that the players can literally do anything physically possible.
Also for the people who aren't familiar with H.P. Lovecraft I highly recommend reading some of his short stories. He was a horror/science fiction writer and is considered one of the most influential in the genre. Many many things in modern day fiction actually originate from his stories, the Necronomicon being a good example. I'm sure all have more to say on him and the cthulhu mythos in the future.
