Why most Video Games get Cthulhu Wrong
I wasn't sure if Extra Credits was still active and current (when it left Escapist I sort of lost touch until recently), but it's a great show and I was delighted to find new episodes on Youtube. This particular episode does a great job of explaining not just what's wrong with the Cthulhu/Mythos interpretations we see in most video games today, but also in most fan media. Watch and learn! Feel free to share with your Cthulhu-hoodie wearing cohorts who feel that having a Chibi-Cthulhu is equivalent to having actually read Lovecraft.
