Call of Cthulhu was one hell of a game. By far the "scariest" game I've ever played. Also one of the most atmospheric. It was incredibly difficult at times and took a lot of trial and error but it was sooo worth it.

I'm glad its getting some more attention. The developers shut down not long after the game was released on PC. Maybe if it sells well on Steam Bethesda will have some incentive to fund a sequel.

Probably.

Oblivion and Morrowind engines are extremely easy to mod from the ground up. The actual game executable has very little to do with it.

Yeah, its possible that's the case. Shame, really. Most people aren't interested in MMOs, Valve was better off with a Bethesda Combo deal.

You can with Fallout 3.

My days of getting games again for a Steam version are gone though, at least for the moment.

Its bundled with the game.

Also included in the Game of the Year edition are Knights of the Nine and the Shivering Isles expansion, adding new and unique quests and content to the already massive world of Oblivion. See why critics called Oblivion the Best Game of 2006.
I was excited about rebuying Oblivion but I got it for $20 when the thing came out, $20 in 2009 is bit too much, especially since Oblivion was a snooze fest after a while. Both Morrowind and Cthulhu need to be $9.95, too.
