The World of Darkness franchise has had quite an impact upon geek, gaming, and even popular culture. The Underworld movie series shamelessly ripped off a lot of ideas from the WoD setting, and there have been a few attempts to bring the franchise to online gamers, such as the lamentably cancelled World of Darkness mmorpg from CCP Games.

It has been in development, on and off, for the past four years, but the sun has finally set (or risen, from the vampire's perspective) on the World of Darkness project.
