This list is an attempt to identify the most highly-regarded Call of Cthulhu adventure modules of all time based on the ratings from both GeekDo and RPG.net.

These modules not only make excellent picks for players of Call of Cthulhu but also arguably are among the greatest of all time for any system. There are only perhaps a couple dozen non-D&D modules that can claim to have as many quality ratings across both sites; most of these are Call of Cthulhu modules.

In order to do an efficient incorporation of the two sites, I include only modules with at least twelve ratings on each site, counting a review on RPG.net as four ratings. I then took the upper third of such modules from each site, put them together into a single list of modules, created two rankings (one for each site), and finally averaged those rankings together to get the final order below.
