Do you ever go back to one of your already-solved mystery games to replay it? I admit I do. If you are one of the fans who owns every single Nancy Drew game, all that there is left to do while waiting for the next title, is to replay the older ones. (If you are still collecting every mystery in the Nancy Drew series, which ones are you going to get and play next?)
Personally, I like to replay the games in order to play the story order differently. My habit may be to talk to all the characters first when I begin the game, but the second and third time I play, I try to collect all the awards at the end, spend time hunting for Easter Eggs, and enjoy replaying puzzles and fun activities, like filling orders at the snack shop in Warnings at Waverly Academy.
However, when it goes to the scary mysteries, that first initial scare moment is not quite the same as the first time I began the mystery. In fact, I look forward expectantly to seeing the scare scenes! With Ghost of Thornton Hall, it's still a bit surprising since you can't be 100% sure when Charlotte's ghost appears...at least..I can't put my finger on when that exactly happens...yet.
Anyways, this is what my reaction looks like when I get to see the ghost again:
I'm curious...what do you look forward to when playing a Nancy Drew game? Either new or already played mysteries?
