Is gone home worth 19.99?

I would wait for Humble Bundle 12 or 13, It will probably be included in one of those.

No, it's not worth that much. Not even worth playing for free. It belongs in the garbage along with all the other trashbag games.

For a walking simulator? No.

Not really. I wouldn't pay more than $3-4 dollars for it.

That being said, it's an okay game if you get stoned first.

I fixed the decimal place for you.


That's being generous

It's good, but on sale is a better price.

Everyone should at least try it, it's one of those types of games.

The problem with is it is that
Half of the time you're just listening to
Exposition.
Yet the game is very atmospheric.

And the story is quite good, but make sure it doesn't get spoiled.
Really, you'll be looking at just having one playthrough.
Everyone says that story based games don't work, but some of my favourite games are story based games.

Like To The Moon, that was a good game which had really
Emotional moments.
Such is the finicky nature of games I guess. But no, buy it on special.

it does an interesting thing with exploration and its story can be good, but at the end of the day its only about 2hours long with 0 replay value. for that $20 you can buy a LOT of stuff more worthy of your money (especially with the new humble bundle deals and the ubisoft sale going on). Im sure itll show up in a bundle or for $5 at some point soon.

No not at all. The story is good, realistic, but very simple and very short. The realism of the story i think is one of its strong points. It didn't go off the deep end by trying to force some crazy weird story on you. Just a story of a somewhat dysfunctional family. That being said, because the story is so simple, the exploration aspect is also very simple and there's only one ending, so it's pretty linear when you consider that. I'd say just watch it online. You kind of get a similar experience or wait to find it on sale for maximum $5.
