With some imagination, clever coding and a little work you can have a lot of fun with the Arduino platform - and a great example of this has been published by Krzysztof Jankowski. Their project is a role-playing game that's hosted by an Arduino and a typical LCD display.
The player is controlled with some external buttons, and custom characters for the LCD help increase the quality of game play and also help demonstrate how to get the most from these displays. A quick demonstration of the game is shown in the following video:
