* ''Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers'': Gabriel Knight is an author and owner of a bookstore in UsefulNotes/NewOrleans. To overcome a writer's block he tries to use the material from a series of murders his policeman friend investigates. However, afflicted with [[NightmareDreams freaky dreams]] nightly, he comes to learn that he shares a family history with a local Voodoo sect within the city, one that hinges upon being able to free his bloodline from a curse that befell them years earlier. With the help of his assistant, Grace Nakimura, and local police officer (and best friend since childhood) Detective Franklin Mosely, Gabriel discovers his roots, learning that he is [[InTheBlood descended from a German family]], the Ritters, whose men were all ''[[GratuitousGerman Schattenjäger]]''; "[[TheHunter Shadow Hunters]]" tasked with [[WhoYouGonnaCall battling the supernatural evils]] of the world, which he accomplishes in this game by healing the [[WomanScorned bad blood]] between his bloodline and that of Malia Gedde, a N'Awlins resident who hides a [[AristocratsAreEvil dark secret]].
* ''The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery'': A FullMotionVideo entry which managed to buck the well-known trend of FMV games. This time, Gabriel has returned to his family home, Schloss Ritter, to [[WhoYouGonnaCall assist the local citizens]] with what they believe to be a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf attack]]. Grace, feeling snubbed back in New Orleans, books a flight out to join him, and the pair take their respective lines of research, resulting in the revelation that the werewolf in question has a history with King UsefulNotes/LudwigIIOfBavaria, one which nearly takes Gabriel's very soul.
* ''Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned'': Gabriel and Grace are asked to protect a prince's son from [[OurVampiresAreDifferent a new supernatural threat]], and while they pursue the kidnappers, links to UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar and even more incredible things are discovered the deeper they delve. ''Gabriel Knight 3'' was released right in the middle of the adventure game slump of the late 90's and ended up being the final adventure game released by Sierra before their closing and eventual acquisition by Vivendi.

[[http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/gabriel_knight_sins_of_the_fathers The entire series is available for digital purchase from GOG.com.]] Also [[http://www.gabrielknight20th.com/ the first game in the series]] got a 20th Anniversary remake with Jane Jensen and Robert Holmes' input, released on October 15th, 2014. The possibility of a ''Gabriel Knight 4'' getting made has also been confirmed, but whether or not it will actually be realized is currently up in the air.
