I started replaying some of my favorite HOGs starting with Dracula's Legacy. Hard to believe it all started there for me, 5 years ago.
It still holds up quite well overall, though I do notice the missing quality of life features added to newer games, like pinned inventory, negative combo responses, a map showing available actions, and 3D scenes.
Thanks. Any of those stick out for you? I'm going to grab the family mystery ones since I don't have any. We just finished Path of Greed which was pretty good. Of course I got it on sale at steam but not nearly at this price.
As for the others...not really tripping my trigger. A little too whimsical/fantasy for my tastes.
One thing I've noticed is it seems the newer ones seem to be shorter/a lot easier than the older ones.
