Getting back into IF, best re-introductions to the genre - an IFDB Poll

by Sorrel

I haven't played any IF for roughly the past 6 years and am excited to get back into it. So, what have I missed? What have been some of your favorite games released since 2010? Alternatively, what games do you think would serve as a good reintroduction to the genre? I remember most of the IF conventions, but am definitely a little rusty on typical IF logic/puzzles.

Back in the day I particularly enjoyed conversation-based and one-room puzzle games, so I'd especially love to get some of those recommendations.
