Gone Home is an interactive exploration simulator. Interrogate every detail of a seemingly normal house to discover the story of the people who live there. Open any drawer and door. Pick up objects and examine them to discover clues. Uncover the events of one family's lives by investigating what they've left behind.

You come into your house only to find it completely empty. You have no idea of what’s actually going on and there’s a storm outside. Do you dare to travel further into this dark void of puzzles and exploration?

Story: Confusing at first, but you get a hang of it after a while. I just love how you find a picture or a note and the narrator begins reading out event from the past.

Graphics: I don’t actually give two ♥♥♥♥♥ about this. But I think it looks good, it has a cartoony vibe to it which makes me tingle.

Sound: I was sitting on the brink of my chair throughout the whole game. It actually scared me just walking around not knowing if there was a monster on the next door I opened. It is in fact absolutely brilliant!

Gameplay: You walk around and pick up things, and look at things. I really liked this game. You can finish it in 10 minutes or 10 hours. You decide how immersed you want to be. Play this in a dark room with a headset on and I guarantee you will soil yourself. (soiling yourself is not guaranteed, not excuse me while I go back to playing “Gone Home”.

To sum it up: I found a tampon and carried it through the whole game, his name is Geoff. 10/10 best game. Immerse yourself and thank me later.

Oh boy, where do I start with this game? How about that it was an astronomically huge bait and switch?

The beginning of this game was interesting, had a great atomosphere, and kept me invested enough to want to solve this "games" so-called mystery. Then the development team decide to do a complete 180 near the end of the game and throw everything straight out the window. The ending did not pay off, plain and simple.

So back in the year 2013 this game was getting an incredible amount of praise from various video game review sites, which was my inital reason for playing it and even knowing it existed. After having played it though, I found out how overhyped this game truly was. It didn't even come close to what some of these critics were claiming it was. They acted as if it was something truly revolutionary and worthy of game of the year. It is by no means worthy of such a prestigious title. It's actually an insult to the gaming industry for it to even be considered for game of the year.

The only thing you do in this so-called "game" is walk throughout house finding clues/specific items which when interacted with will then trigger voice recording from your "missing" sister. The voice recordings will give you a very small backstory on your sisters mindset and they will also give you a hint as to where you can find the next clue/item. This is what the entire game consists of and it became repetitious rather quickly. It got so repetitious to the point where the game became a chore to complete.

Before I go on to talk about what really bothered me with this game, let me give you a brief premise of the story. You play as Kaitlin Greenbriar who returns home to find her parents house empty. Her mom, dad, and sister are no where to be found. YOU and only YOU must find out what happened to her family.

Now that we're all caught up, let's talk about the games completely uninteresting uneventful ending. This is what really made me angry and is the reason I am writting this review. Obvious SPOILERS ahead. So it turns out Kaitlin's mom and dad happen to be on a camping trip while she decides to return home. So it's just a case of she's at the wrong place, at the wrong time. She probably should of called first before returning home unannounced, am I right?. Now what happened to her adorable little sister you may be wondering - Well, let's dive right into it. The entire reason her sister is no where to be found is because she decided to run away while your parents were on their camping trip due to a homosexual relationship in which they didn't approve of. Yes, she ran away with her girlfriend and decided to drop out of high school to live happily ever after in La La Land . What a great life descision.

I believe the ending is the entire reason the game got any recognition from the critics. It got the recognition because it tackles a controversial subject like homosexuality. Now I support equality to the fullest, that's not the problem here. The problem is the first half of this game hinted at paranormal themes and seemed as if it were going to go in a completely different direction then it acutally ended up going. It's pretty clear that the paranormal/mystery aspect of the game was used to bait consumers into buying this piece of trash. Had I known it was all a front for love story mumbo jumbo I wouldn't even touched this game. The game even had a damn Ouija board in it at one point for crying out loud. It not only had that but it also had a genuinely erie atmosphere with great ambient sounds that thickned it to the fullest extent. There were creeks, faint voices, and thunderstrkes that would all occur as you would walk throughout the house.

I'm just so disappointed about the direction the devolpers decided go because very few video games have as great of an atmosphere as this one did during the first half of the game. This game really could have turned out to be a truly great horror/mystery title. However, the developers decided to throw that great atmosphere out the window with this love story bullcrap. I would also like to point out that just because a game chooses to tackle a controversal subject does not make it revolutionary or something of good quality. I'm talking to you video game critics

I personally believe this game isn't worth buying by any means whatsoever. It definitly isn't worth the $20 price tag that's for damn sure. To be completely blunt, I'm not even sure something like this can even be considered a game. Walking simulator fits it better.

TL;DR (Contains spoilers): This game is extremely repetitious, the main characters mom and dad are not actually missing but are on a camping trip, and main characters sister is a full blown lesbian who dropped out of high school to run away and live happily ever after with her girlfriend while their parents were on said camping trip.

I know this is a storyline-based game, so I'm going to review it as one (no ''omg there is no gameplay its just walking and listening to ur character 2/10'').

The ambiance is quite good. Also lots of nostalgic stuff for 90s kids, i guess.
The storyline, however, is thin, and not very interesting.
This game would maybe be an okay buy if it was cheaper (5 - 10 euro would be alright). But 20 euros for this? Especially considering the game can be finished in 2 hours, It's best if you skip this one.

5/10
