This game doesn't deserve anything higher or lower than a 5 to 7. People giving it 10's are just stupid fanboys trying to justifyHonestly?
This game doesn't deserve anything higher or lower than a 5 to 7. People giving it 10's are just stupid fanboys trying to justify their $500 + dollars spent on a generic Bordlands game, and the people giving it 0's are just autistic neckbeards who want to watch this game burn.
My honest score would probably be 6. It's nothing new by far, and enemies feel like HP sponges instead of actual challenges. It honestly is nothing more than Halo/Borderlands smeared in grey and black.… Expand

Average User Score: 5.3Aug 28, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Gone Home is a game, if that's what you can even call it, about exploring a house and uncovering a mystery. You would think that this would be exciting and riveting if the mystery solving didn't focus on walking around a poorly designed house reading notes because, well, that's all there is to Gone Home. It's simply a hour of you walking around a house, rummaging through cabinets and drawers, discovering poorly hidden secret passages that, if found prematurely, can make the game as short as 45 seconds.
It tries hard to tell a interesting story which it does succeed in one point, the voice acting, which is the best part of the entire "game". The other point is the completely forced story involving a closet lesbian finding out her true self. The game tries to be subtle, but it manages that as well as someone trying to hide a blood stain on a dress with ketchup.
The game simply does not hold up to the raving reviews it is receiving by critics across the board. It doesn't captivate you emotionally, it isn't entertaining, and it sure as hell is not worth $20 dollars.
Yes, a game that can be completed in less than 45 seconds, that consists of nothing more than walking and turning on lights, is worth $20 dollars.
20 AMERICAN DOLLARS.… Expand
