Gone Home. The biggest deceit in PC Gaming History. -SPOILERS-

Finished in a hour and a half, nice game, nice setting. Highly overpriced (10$ would have been fine).

But from the 2 reviews I read (IGN and other one I don't remember) the game is highly praised for it's portrayal of a 90's family house, so maybe people who were teenagers on the 90's will find it more pleasing.

While I think it's really well done I just feel it could have been so much more. Maybe some decisions, different endings, obviously more lenght.

I think it would have been really nice if every playtrough you discover the truth about a family member and then the last playthrough you piece al together (Kinda like Zero Escape)

If I really cared what you guys said, I would have 200 hours logged into Morrowind and not Skyrim.

And yet you continue to respond. Methinks the lady doth protest too much. Personally, I find it flattering that you care so much.



I only care about you Sir_Specter!!!!!

I was hoping to encounter a ghost. There were tons of hints of a ghost being in the house, and what do I get? No ghost.

It's an indie adventure game... I knew what to expect from the get go which is why I avoided it like the plague.

I haven't played the trailer but just watching the trailer I was giddy with nostalgia. They did really well with the setting, if nothing else.

I don't want social justice warrior pandering bullcrap in my video game. Gays and lesbians in Fallout New Vegas were fine, because they were well written.

This is just an agenda being pushed. They even make references to "patriarchy". Yeah, no. Don't defend this trash. You know exactly what it is.

Not to mention the fact that there is literally no gameplay. No puzzles or anything. There's nothing here. Storytelling via exploration has been done, and done much better. System Shock 2, Halflife, Bioshock...

Also, you kinda love the irony that some of the same posters complaining about the gay content of the game have no problem with graphic pornography and hentai with unspeakable, shameful things done (or simulated being done) to women, but two women having an actual RELATIONSHIP IN A GAME, that's disgusting. I can't comment on the game itself, but it sounds like it's vastly overrated from a gameplay/story standpoint, still, had to point out the bigotry.


Where are you pulling out this "they have no problem with graphic pornography and hentai" crap? Cause I'm pretty sure many have problems with it, yet face the same ridicule whenever oppositions to those things are voiced as well.

Also, yeah I agree with those who are disgruntled that they bought this game only to find out it had an LGBT agenda. It's the equivalent of sending their money towards a movement that they neither support nor agree with, except unknowingly doing so. Anyone who actually thinks that this is no big deal and supports LGBT, how would you feel if you handed twenty dollars over to a game only to find out that it was obviously and actively against the LGBT movement? That it was trying to normalize a worldview that you disagree with?

I'm not sure how the two of those things even relate.

If you don't like gay relationships shoved into games in a pandering way, you aren't allowed to like porn either?

I wouldn't really give a ****. I certainly wouldn't expect for the game to give an explicit warning that it was anti-LGBT.
