Reasons To Play Fallen London
  1. Fantastic writing
  2. It’s free
  3. It’s a browser game. Nothing to download.
  4. Lovecraftian influence
  5. Victorian Era
  6. You can have a bat as a pet! (You can also have lizards, monkeys, demon goats, an even bigger demon goat, rats, ravens, a tiger, and a bunch of other animals. But the bats are what’s important.)
  7. Lots of RP aspects. Play the game however you like. Strict moral code? Morally bankrupt? The devils or the church? The Masters or the Revolutionaries? Play every side? You want to be spy? You can be a spy. An author? A thug? Monster hunter? A professional trickster?
  8. Plenty of things to explore and discover
  9. The Sunless Sea spin off game on Steam, GOG, and Humble Bundle
  10. The developers are kind, upstanding folks and are absolutely not cannibals. Rumors implying so are nothing but the most heinous of slander.

Will add more to this list as I think them up.
