I'm honestly a little confused about this game. Gone Home got a lot of media attention, so I figured it must be a good game, especially since it is short. The masses let me down in this case.
At the start of the game, I actually thought Gone Home was going to be a horror game. It's not, so you can breathe easy. At several points I still expected the story to take a dark turn. That might actually have been better than the ill-fitting ending that is given. It's not that the ending is bad, it is just too far removed from the tone set at the beginning of the game. The gameplay is at best unoriginal, and at worst boring. That'd be fine if the story was amazing, but it's not. The story, like the gameplay, ranges from unoriginal to boring. Yes, technically, if you combine all the game elements, this is a unique adventure game. But unique does not equate to good.
If you must play this for yourself to appease your pop culture sensibilities, it is a short enough game to do so. But if you can ignore the bizarre amount of hype around Gone Home, pass on it. You're not missing much.
