Disappointed to see Bloodborne not on the list.

It was the one game I loved that I know is Lovecraftian. 4/5 of these games are heavily Story driven/Interactive which might not cater to a majority of gamers.

Never heard of Conarium and Moons of Madness. Added them to my wishlist for a future sale.

I always think of bloodborne as a good Halloween lovecraftian game.

Nice to see this has been finally settled.

Good for them. Sinking City was an odd game for me. Tons of jank and filler, and poorly tacked-on combat and character upgrades, but decent writing and stories that were compelling enough to make me finish the game.
It feels like it wants to be a point-and-click adventure game, but got shoehorned into an open-world RPG.

I got la noire vibes from it.

SyntheticForm170d ago (Edited 170d ago )

Good game. Not bad, not great. I'm still waiting for an amazing Cthulu game. Call of Cthulu by Cyanide/Focus Home got the tone and setting right, but just didn't deliver enough in other areas.

One day, eventually.

we never will now in this current climate. HP Lovecraft is taboo amongst the major players. Shame too cuz all his stories would make killer side quests in an open world adventure about the great old ones.

Nacho_Z170d ago

Rather than DLC a sequel that built on everything that worked and polished the bits that didn't would be ideal. There was a lot to like about the first game and it'd be a great base for a follow up with improved combat etc.

Feels like the game is a bit old for DLC, I can imagine them grafting on it and nobody buying it.
