How about a bit of dystopian fun and intrigue? Beholder takes place in a totalitarian country, and you role-play as a state-installed landlord in an apartment building. You're tasked with placing listening devices in its flats and surveilling the tenants and rooting out the ones who are planning to overthrow the government. The good news is, the building's rent-controlled. Ba-DUM-pum!

Here's a game that offers the player a compelling combo of grandiosity and nihilism. The Blind Prophet is a point-and-click adventure game that takes place in the post-apocalyptic city of Rotbork. You play the apostle Bartholomeus and your mission is to battle the Great Evil in the hope of maintaining a shred of civilization. Along the way, you'll uncover the mysteries hidden beneath the devastated urban landscape.

Another "Blind" protagonist, and this game takes that concept to the extreme. In fact, A Blind Legend isn't actually a video game but an immersive audio experience, thanks to its binaural 3D sound. You play Edward Blake, who, accompanied by his daughter, Louise, journeys through the High Castle Kingdom navigating its perils and confronting his enemies.

Think of Healer's Quest as an RPG (role-playing game) version of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, but you play as a healer in a fantasy world and your band of questers are inept jerks. Ah...even in fantasy-adventure-video game world, health-care workers can't get a break!
