H.P. Lovecraft was a master of horror, so it's no surprise that this retelling of his novella "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" makes for one of the best horror games out there: Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth. The game is steeped in the Cthulhu mythos, and it breaks with a number of game conventions: it has no HUD, and instead of a life bar, audio (your heartbreak and your breathing) and visual (the screen loses color) cues indicate how much health you have. This increases the game's suspense as your detective investigates a cult--and finds a thriving worship supernatural horror.
