It's not as if there were many PC games for it to compete against.


Kerbal Space Program deserved it more than Gone Home imo.


KSP isn't even out of alpha yet...not that I don't agree with you.

Why wouldn't it be? Can you push start and view it to the credits without any user input? It's a game. Deal with it.


A horrible game.

I doubt anyone on this board would link to Spike unless they did things like this. Thanks to the way advertising and attention works you don't necessarily need to be taken "seriously". Being controversial is easier than creating a video game awards show worth watching and sharing. For example the most talked about LPer on this board is probably PewDiePie even though hardly anyone admits to liking him or thinking that his work is worth watching. I didn't even know what Spike or PewDiePie were before their controversial actions were shared and then I googled them. You can get attention at the loss of "credibility" and many people take that deal.

For the record, the panel of 'experts' that picked the winners comprised of, among others, 3 members of Polygon (close friends with the Fullbright Company, the ones who made Gone Home) and 2 members of Kotaku. It sure is a mystery how Gone Home won both the PC game category and the indie game category. Then again, taking Keighley's terrible award show seriously is pretty dumb.

This. It really sucks how most people think it was an actual vote by the people. It was rigged from the beginning.

Gone Home shouldn't have even been nominated.

By that logic movies are games too.

Let's be realistic. If the player is not making risk/reward choices than it's not a game. Deal with it.

I've watched a good deal of movies where I can press play and view to the credits without any user input.

I hope Gone Home winning this award of little value doesn't encourage indie devs to just make short games for an easy buck. It's still being sold at 14.99 despite being about 3 hours long.
