23 Reasons Why Gone Home Is The Most Important Game You’ll Ever Play

I finished Gone Home last week, but I’d played a lot of it before. Back in 2012, I judged it for the IGF and could tell it was something special. The build didn’t go all the way to the end; I’ve had to wait nearly a year for the plot’s conclusion. I feel like a George R. R. Martin fan.

So I finished it last week, and there have been a lot of things I wanted to say about it. A LOT of things. The difficulty has been working out how to say it. The game’s so narratively rich, so wonderfully constructed, and it’s hard to get across just how well it succeeds in everything it does. I wanted to do it justice.

Finally, now, I’ve worked out exactly what I want to say, and how to say it. So here are 23 reasons why Gone Home is the most important game you’ll ever play.


God bless you, good ol’ Christmas Duck.

I want to start a website for my Roller derby team, all we have is a myspace right now. How can I start a website that has a dot com, or html, etc, that I can design on my own, and keep up on my own so that we can actually have a website for fans to go to???? Thanks any and all help appreciated..

Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Finding the time and
actual effort to produce a really good article… but what
can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and never seem to get
anything done.
