Humanity is supposed to promote introspection and signpost your character's spiral into monstrousness, or their valiant struggle to stay connected with their better nature. It's a big part of what makes a Vampire game a Vampire game.
And, quite frankly, I think every Vampire game has messed up the actual mechanical implementation of it super hard, with only one exception, and that's Requiem 2nd Edition not 1st Edition. And that's because it's the only game that engages with Humanity in terms of alienation rather than morality. It's a subtle difference but a big change in play. Those questions may be important in play, but in my experience they're better when we don't have to make a pseudo-"objective" determination here and now as part of a die roll.
Rather, the thing that matters mechanically in the moment is trauma. All of this suits the game's "Southern gothic" vibe rather well, in my opinion. Requiem 2e is also a game that rewards you for facing detachment rather than treating Humanity loss as a near-totally punitive thing.
Which means there's actually an incentive for players to push towards the theme rather than avoid it. In my experience, this leads to more direct engagement with Humanity than in its other formulations.
I'm pointing this out not so much to assert that VTR2 is flat-out better, but to spotlight its approach because I think other Vampire games can be easily improved by transplanting it there as well. That said, V20 does have something interesting you won't find in the other two games: "Paths of Enlightenment.
Playing around with these inhuman philosophies and faiths can be great fun, and some players appreciate having the explicit mechanical structure for them. V5's useful contribution is that it asks you to figure out the specific genre of your game, and build a list of moral tenets around that.
This ties the moral struggle more closely to a few specific themes rather than a one-size-fits-all approach like older VtM games. VTR2 and V5 are both notable for moving their respective Humanity systems away from "derangements," which is an unfortunate bit of the older games that attaches a rather clunky and caricatured take on mental illness to the characters' declining Humanity.
It looks really cool.

Rose Bailey , David Brookshaw , N. Original electronic Scanned image These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.
The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.
For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book.
