Re: Mafia Capital (WWC XIII): Important Info Here -- READ OPENING POSTS!
Hi Taffimai! Welcome. As for older games - I'm not sure which to point you at, but I would suggest instead of looking through the game archives, you could instead look through the current players in a few of their recent games. I took a hiatus for awhile and recently came back myself, and should have done that just to get used to the style of how people play. I feel you would gain a lot there. Take a look at AvatarVecna - they've been around awhile and IMHO are an extremely good player.

Variants of the games take off from there, and are usually explained in the recruitment thread/first post of those games.
Some common terms however that will help.
Day phase - time frame where deductions are happening and no actions are being used (usually).
Night phase - time frame where actions are happening (Werewolf kill, baner protection, seer looking at someone)
Villager/Townie/Citizen - no special abilities or actions besides their sharp wits. They win when they eliminate the wolves.
Wolf/Mafia/Scum - the bad guys. They are usually hiding, and if they outnumber the villagers, they win.
Baner/Doctor/Hero - Village aligned person who protects someone each night.
Seer/Detective/Investigator - Village aligned person looking for a wolf each night.
Terms I've learned since I've come back.
OMGUS - Oh my god you suck. Usually a logic used to seek revenge on another player at the start of a game as payback for a previous game.
BUS - Throwing someone under the bus.
Yeet - I'm old and have no idea, but apparently it refers to booting someone into the sun.
