  Arkham Asylum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane is a mental hospital that appears in the fictional DC Universe.
Originally, Arkham Asylum was used only to house genuinely insane characters - the Joker and Two-Face were inmates from its very first appearance - but over the course of the 1980s a trend was established of having the majority of Batman's supervillain opponents end up at Arkham, whether or not they were actually insane.
Even a former Arkham employee is now an inmate; psychiatrist Dr. Harleen Quinzel went insane and turned to crime, as the loony Harley Quinn, after the Joker, then her patient, seduced her and enlisted her as his sidekick.

 RPGnet: Review of Arkham Horror 1st edition   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Arkham Horror is a fairly unique game, especially for its time, because it's in many ways a roleplaying strategy game (if you want it to be), and it's very much a cooperative strategy game; the investigators who don't work together are ultimately squished.
Overall I think Arkham Horror does quite a good job of presenting a roleplaying strategy game, either in the market of 15 years ago or the market of today, and thus I'd give it a "4" out of "5" for substance.
However, Arkham Horror is still unique, and definitely suggested for the Cthulhu gamer who enjoys a strategic aside.

These words of reflection penned by August Derleth some 20 years after the creation of Arkham House (AH) show the initial purpose of AH, but they also foretell what was to become of this now historical icon in the world of small pulp publishers.
‘Arkham House’ suggested itself at once, since it was Lovecraft’s own well-known, widely-used place-name for legend-haunted Salem, Massachusetts, in his remarkable fiction; it seemed to us that this was fitting and that Lovecraft himself would have approved it enthusiastically”.
S.T. Joshi notes later in Sixty Years of Arkham House that Derleth’s prediction was actually a prediction of his own demise sometime in the next decade, thus too the demise of AH.

 The SF Site Featured Review: Arkham House Books: A Collector's Guide
Arkham House is one of the finest publishers of collected short fiction in the field.
But then Arkham House seemed entirely retrospective for the thirty years between 1950 and 1980, with little risk taking unless you count publishing the first collections of Ramsey Campbell and Brian Lumley, but their stories were inspired by the 30s golden age of the weird tale, so does that count as a risk?
Not to mention being the foremost publishers of weird fiction for sixty years, for Arkham House to be on the cutting edge of genre (cutting edge, meaning specifically important works of their time, not necessarily the experimental works of their time) for two and a half decades out of six is an impressive accomplishment.

Basically, Arkham serves as a Jungian metaphor for the mind, and all of its inmates represent the hidden aspects of the unconscious, with the Joker representing (in my opinion) the Trickster archetype whose role is to challenge and tear down the conscious mind, often with humour, and sometimes at the risk of destroying it.
