RPGaDay 2015 – Day 20: Favourite Horror RPG

20/08/2015
Call of Cthulhu: Dark Designs

Short Answer: Call of Cthulhu, Chaosium.

Long Answer: Your first doesn’t always end up being your favourite, but that’s not the case with Call of Cthulhu. It’s horrifying without being needlessly violent or lapsing into an action adventure. It’s classic existential horror. You might never come face-to-face with a mythos creature, but your character can still go mad with the knowledge that there might be something out there.

Oh, and just so we’re clear, I’m talking about the standard version of the RPG. Call of Cthulhu has inspired a LOT of supplements, spin offs, and re-imaginings. Many of these are great, but the original is still the best. It’s possibly the most true to the original books, and that counts for a lot in my book.
