Alternate Reality Games. Players seek out obscure or hidden clues to track down secret messages, find hidden prizes and solve riddles and codes. Think of things like the whysoserious campaign to raise hype for one of the new Batman movies a few years ago, or the I Love Bees mystery game that Bungee used to promote Halo, things like that. I think there are also game companies that run private ARGs for players, and ones that are open for anyone to get involved in.
