From Cracked:

The PC game Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis (or Sherlock Holmes versus Arsene Lupin outside the U.S.) attempts to recreate the classic Holmes/Watson dynamic by letting you play as both characters. You control Holmes most of the time (from a first person perspective), but the programmers made sure that your loyal friend Watson is always close by so you can switch off to him if necessary.

Apparently they forgot one little detail, though: Creating the "walking" animations for Watson. As in, showing him actually move from one place to the other. The unintended result was that Watson ended up looking like the creepiest character in the history of video games.

IT'S LIKE YOU CAN FEEL SHERLOCK'S TERROR.

I WISH WATSON LOOKED LIKE MARTIN FREEMAN.

This video is the reason I started playing these games, no lie. I was super sad when they all didn't have Creeper Watson. But the Cthulhu one was AMAZING.

Apparently they fixed it after the second one. Wait, "fixed".

Are they any good? Should I check them out?

I like them! I played the two I could find. I haven't finished the Jack the Ripper one, but I was really interested in it until I had a puzzle I just didn't care about and gave up. I keep thinking about how I should definitely finish it, so I see that as a good sign. And if you do play them, you should totally start with The Awakened, the Lovecraft one. It's incredibly awesome and it gets very intense and atmospheric. The puzzles are interesting, though the mechanics of some of the solutions was like pulling teeth at times.
