This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we talk about a gritty, street level horror RPG in which you play creatures of the night making their way in the big city. Vampire: The Masquerade? Nope! Beating White Wolf to the punch by a full year is Stellar Games’ Nightlife (1990). We talk about the appeal of being the monster, the many similarities between the two games and the delightful way in which Nightlife captures the nightlife of New York City in the early 90s. Content warning, though: around the six minute mark, we have a brief and frank discussion about some casual racism in the game that includes some harsh language.
