Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers
The first entry in the classic adventure game series about a detective-turned-paranormal-investigator. Best known for its sharp writing, New Orleans flavor, and over-the-top turn by Tim Curry as the title character, Sins of the Fathers is a great example of a game that benefits from the small screens and low resolutions of Netbooks (on a big HD monitor, it just turns into a pixelated mess). One of the new Activision/Sierra games available DRM-free from GoG.com for $5.99.
Note that this game was also on our previous list of Five Classic Adventure Games that should be Re-released as Digital Downloads.
