Players debate concerning the game and my initial goal with this review:
there is actually a heated debate about this game at the moment. Many people believe that this game should not be considered a game. The other group of people claimed that the prior party knows nothing and that Gone Home is indeed a game, and a groundbreaking at that; for the same reason the prior party argues it is not. Then there is the small group of people who talked about whether the game deserves it is $19.99 price. I
f I were to put myself between those three groups, I would be on that small last group. I purposely did not delve into people’s comments too much because I wanted to play this game with an open mind. Hopefully my review will reflect this. My intention for this review is to first break down the game for you readers so you guys have an idea of how the game is. Afterwards, I will show you guys why I have come to the conclusion I did concerning whether or not I believe the game is worth it is pricetag. I also know a lot of gamers have been wanting to play this game but are hesitant due to the price. I have actually been asked by a couple people to review this for that reason.
-My review will touch all groups and their arguments. I tried to look at this game in as many perspective as I am able to see, so hopefully, I wrote in an open-minded enough way to help you guys decide better.-
Shoutout of Gratitude: Thanks to one of my steam buddies, Ben, for gifting me the game =).
What got me interested: I first discovered Gone Home from my twitter feed. I saw one of the people I follow gush about the game. After going through some research about the game, two things caught my attention. First, I found out the developers originally worked for the company that created bioshock 2, bioshock infinite, and xcom which, I am not gonna lie, seduced me. Second, I usually glance at games ratings to have an idea of how the general public view the game, then from there, I can check out which aspects of the game are getting bashed and which parts are getting love so that I can take note on what things to further break down for the readers.
