    True, it doesn't have a detective vision mode. But he has a funny hat and solves mysteries.

    Has both a PC and PSX version. Used the latter for screenshot because it has smaller pictures of better quality, but I recommend the PC version (mostly due to higher output resolution and mouse support) of course.

    Here's a few that I don't think were mentioned. (Hopefully, Gamedec is good.)

    Highly recommend Detective Di. Completed it a few days ago. 2 of the puzzles don't really make sense though so feel no shame in looking up solutions if you're struggling.

    That Yakuza spinoff Jugdment is a detective game, it's like a beat 'em up crossed with a adventure game.

    There's the Police Quest games.
