How many of your games are “conspiracy investigations”?

I realised the majority of games/adventures I like to read or play use the trope of “conspiracy investigation”. Examples:

  • Trail of Cthulhu
  • Delta Green
  • Eclipse Phase
  • D&D Tyranny of Dragons
  • Silent Legions
  • Dark Heresy
  • Shadowrun 2e (back in the day)
  • Unknown Armies
  • The God Machine Chronicle
  • Tales from the Loop

There’s such a common thread of “finding out things man was not meant to know” in my interests. I can’t really recall a recent game where there wasn’t a mystery to be solved. Maybe some OSR dungeoncrawl stuff at a con.

Is that normal, or just me?
