Can you distil the essence of an Arkham Files game to one sentence?

Recommended Posts

Or maybe a paragraph?

Is there a single definition that applies to all of the tabletop games released so far?

Each of them has you playing a single investigator against the Lovecraftian Mythos.

They are all co-operative games.

In all of them you visit different locations.

Each has damage and horror (right?)

We are interested in finding a taxonomy that you could apply to judging an unknown future game.

And we are just looking at the tabletop games.

Sorry for the duplicate posts but we want to try and reach everyone. We might put your definition in a YouTube video if that’s OK.

Cheers!

Investigators against the maddening world...

Investigators against terrifying Lovecraftian horrors...

Something like that. But it is quite weak compared to what it is really about. It is like describing whole movie genre with one sentense. A man, gun and a horse...  Space ships and futuristic ideas... Quite many movies that "belongs" to that genre are not even near those one liners.
