I've never understood the popularity of this game, granted there is a story, but despite all the praise this apparent story gets it's pretty damn generic, the next great tale of star-crossed lovers this is not. It's got the emotional depth of a sub-standard romance film. On top of all this they even manage to lay in a few tired lesbian stereotypes, afterall unless she's from the army how else are we supposed to know she's a lesbian?. In wondering why this is popular i'm reminded of Ellen Degeneres, "If 12 years a slave dosen't win, we are all racist"

I kept waiting for some real puzzles or at least something that would require me to make a decision of some type. Instead, two hours of systematic point and click. Sure, it's a good story and its mildly entertaining wandering around the mansion but I'd hardly call this game of the year material. I mean come on - you can't NOT solve this one. This isnt so much a game as it is a slightly interactive after school special to introduce teens to young lesbian love. As noble as that might be, it doesn't make for a very intriguing game.

So do people actually take gaming "journalism" seriously anymore.

This shouldnt even be called a game. It's completely linear with no antagonist or anything to stop you or put you against your wits. You go from one room to another and open drawers and such to get a key to get to the next room. It's literally a point A to point B with little to no exploration. The story is ok but it's blatently obvious with tumblr femnazi "we have to force LGBT down your throat because white knights and social justice" The game has no replay value either because once you beat it there's no reason to play it again since the story is exactly the same and because of how linear it is. It's not like you can go back and find hidden stuff or anything. Not to mention the ending defies any sense of logic whatsoever and was a complete letdown. 5/10 and that's being nice. Wish I could get paid to give this a 10/10 and nominate it for GOTY.

Complain about something loudly ---> Offer no insight of your own ---> Congratulations, you're a troll!

If you're going to bitch, how about share what you think the GOTY ought to be?

I agree with Ravenhold....by far the best story/narrative game of the year, and probably of the past several years.... I wont say that I think it is the game of the year, but I really have nothing negative to say about the game. It accomplished what I think the creaters were trying to accomplish and I am glad I played it

Jeez. Some of you are alarmingly shallow. It isn't about game time or cost or excitement. This is definitely the best story/narrative of the year. Game of the year? That is their preference. I would happen to agree. If you don't, too bad. The choice is made and an indie developed game was chosen above all others as the single greatest, deepest, and most crystalline piece of digital interactive media released in 2013. SUCK ON THAT EA!!!!

Steve, as an Idle Thumbs fan I was actually looking forward to this game, at least I was up until its release. 20 dollars for a 2-hour game, which hardly has any gameplay, was just not what I was expecting. Granted, the story themes were something you don't often see in games, but that's not enough to make it a game of the year.

I paid 4 dollars for this....and that was too much for what you get.

Not opposed to the type of game, but rather....the story is lackluster at best.
I would say a solid 70-80 percent of gamers would likely be disappointed by this one...
