He's one of my favorite authors, I started reading his stories in highschool and have a book with some of his stories. One of my favorite non cthulu ones is The colour out of Space which was a really good one. Glad to see so many people like him as well.

Got this from B&N last year but haven't got too it lately ;_; . Anyways Lovecraft has had a huge impact on some of my favorite manga authors/artists and music producers so for that matter I have respect for him.

If you like a good lovecraftian-mystery game, you guys should try The Consuming Shadow. It's actually pretty good for what it is.

Wouldn´t call myself a heavy duty fan, but I love his stuff...read pretty much everything he did and enjoy that type of story (mostly his cthulu-stuff, too)

I always thought the idea of creatures so enormous in size that they are larger than the earth itself and so powerful in being that they can live unhindered in the void of space was an epic idea. I also love ideas that keep peoples minds open to the fact that anything is possible, because the ideas are on the fringe of the realm of possibility. Also which remind us that simply because many things are deemed "impossible" by many people just because the existence of those things has not been proven yet, that does not mean they definitely do not exist because their existence has not been disproved either. So yes Lovecraft's works are something I admire, because they serve as a reminder of those things and because they put human existence into perspective. In a way his work serves to send a message to anyone who comes across his works that we should enjoy our existence to the fullest of our ability, both as individuals and as a collective, because there's literally no telling for certain when or how our existence could simply cease to be.
#104 - anon (02/06/2016) [-]
That final part... What the hell are you talking about? Cosmic horror doesn't have anything to do with that. That's something you and possibly a minuscule amount of others interpreted from it.

#111 - nodnuke (02/07/2016) [-]
"they put human existence into perspective." "we should enjoy our existence" "there's literally no telling for certain when or how our existence could simply cease to be." I'm sorry you didn't get it.

Sure, you could interpret that out of it but that's like interpreting communism out of anything red. Paraedolia.

#113 - nodnuke (02/08/2016) [-]
So you're telling me a genre that directly references and questions the safety and consistency of our existence doesn't have anything to do with our existence or how we spend it? Seems legit.
#70 - fcrocker (02/06/2016) [-]
Please, for the love of God, please recommend me some decent Lovecraftian Horror, in the form of TV/Movies/Video Games.
Failing that, some decent books, though I don't really have any time to read right now.

#107 - hazari (02/06/2016) [-]
The two games I would recommend are Bloodborne obviously because of its setting and story specifically the latter part of the game. the other game i would recommend is Sunless sea which is a really well written game, the writing is really good and the world is well written and the game very enjoyable. The writing is what makes the game great and there is a lot of it and you would probably enjoy it, its on sale on steam for only 12 dollars right now as well.

#99 - wingedikaros (02/06/2016) [-]
I'd recommend Dankest Darkest Dungeon. It's a challenging turn-based combat/dungeon crawler game, like a love letter to Lovecraft, in which managing the stress/sanity of your party members is a pillar of the playability. Definitely recommend it if you're interested in eldritch lore and/or difficult but fair RPG games.
#87 - anon (02/06/2016) [-]
Just about nothing good has come from mixing Lovecraft and visual media.

Bloodborne did it surprisingly well with the "Insight" stat, as it increases the more eldritch and horrible creatures you see, or the more you learn.
And that it lowers frenzy resistance, which is you going crazy.

But yeah I dunno.
#66 - anon (02/06/2016) [-]
Hell yes. I haven't played WoW in years, but one of my favourite things about the Lich King expansion were the Old Gods and the dungeons relating to them. I remember there being a mine in the Grizzly Hills where the ore drove the miners insane and when you go to investigate, you hear eerie whispers and get a bunch of creepy messages showing up in your chat. And then there was the mission in Icecrown where you're plunged into this incredibly deep pit, completely alone, and you have to fight and hide from a bunch of crazy shit. Man, good times. Makes me wanna play again.

Just got into it a few months ago when I bought the complete collection. I wish he was a more recognized American author. I mean, sure his stories don't have the sheer amount of symbolism that all the other classics have, but look at Lovecraft's influence on culture. Many stories and movies have a Necronomicon, movies and videogames have quite a few references (Just look at Fallout 3 or 4), and look how popular things like Cthulu plushies and T-shirts are.

He pretty much created the modern horror genre. Almost every current popular horror trope can be traced back to him. Without him horror would still be at the level of folktales used to scare small children. He and Edgar Allan Poe brought suspenseful, sickening dread of the unknown to the forefront of literary horror, and it's all the better because of them.
#54 - vladhellsing (02/06/2016) [-]
Bloodborne is the reason I got into Lovecraft & bought the Necronomicon (collection of Lovecraft's works) online.
User avatar
#59 - fuckscreennames (02/06/2016) [-]
i'm actually the other way around. I may not have read very much of Lovecraft's stuff but holy fuck do i like that shit, and being a huge fan of the souls series already, bloodborne was just so fantastic to me in just about every way. Of course, even if i wasn't in to all the sick cthulu shit popping off all over the place, it's still just a great game anyway
#58 - avyon (02/06/2016) [-]
to start, I have been a fan of lovecraft for years, and love a lot of his stories and poems.
now with that information, i have also been a big fan of dark souls since my friend forced me to play DS2 with him, i quickly fell in love with the game, and bought all the other souls games Dark souls 1, and demons souls so i was super hyped for bloodborne. i didnt want to ruin any of the surprises that bloodborne had instore for us, so i played through it without looking anything up. You can imagine my surprise and excitement when the theme changed from a victorian werewolf hunt, into a lovecraftian story.
#68 - effort (02/06/2016) [-]
This might come out bias, but this is why I think BB has the best lore out of all the souls game. That lovecraftian eldritch horror implementation is what makes the game so much more vibrant. I probably spent more hours on the PVE side for this game than the other souls games. That insight mechanic is so brilliant, it's mind blowing.
User avatar
#60 - fuckscreennames (02/06/2016) [-]
that shift happens so well too, like it's fairly sudden, but there was just enough of a lead up to it and just enough subtle when you're first playing that is, it's pretty obvious once you already know what's coming ahead hints scattered throughout that you can shift from the beasts to the kin cleanly. Honestly my favorite part about the fact that it shifts is when you look back in hindsight and think "i started this game fighting a werewolf in a fucked up medical clinic with crazed villagers roaming the streets and ended by killing a FUCKING GOD technically several if you fully complete the game FROM BEYOND THE COSMOS."

I feels ya, of late most of my appreciateion of lovecraftian lore has translated into shenanigans done in D&D/Pathfinder style games though.
One's got a bloodborne setting and in the other I'm playing a character who's been raised by an old-one cult pretending to be a feel-good, peace, love and tolerance hippie movement. rest of the party are buying the hippie act.

but yeah, everyone loves incomprehensible nightmare entities who effect reality and everything in it just by existing.

WoW Old Gods are pretty cool.
I was always into the Titan stuff, though.
The idea of an incredibly advanced world-building (or modifying, I guess) civilization is one of my favorite fantasy thing.
Plus their architecture designs and such look awesome.

I've been reading some of his stories everynight for the last month, just before going to sleep. I have spent hours trying to imagine the unimaginable, desperately trying to get a glimpse of the ungraspable vastness of what he displays in between his words, and, oh boy, I've been visiting some weird ass places in my dreams after such meditations

Gotta tell ya, this man's changing my whole perception of the cosmos
