So if I read the reviews about this 'game' on it's steam page I really begin to wonder how they get those ratings and reviews by those companies like they state in this message? Do they just make it up or are those reviews by IGN, PC Gamer and Polygon just really bad and positive about every game?

Actual user game reviews here vs. journalist opinions, seem to indicate that gaming journalism is primarily filled with a bunch of pretentious hipsters nowadays. A 5.3 user Metacritic score and 96% Steam user thumbs down is a pretty stark contrast to a supposed "GOTY".

As usual, gamers with childish attitudes prove that we're the group most full of vitriol short of political commentators on the internet. Great! Thanks for your input guys. Do you ever stop to think that maybe because things aren't blowing up or you aren't running from something or shooting something and you think it sucks that other people might think, "finally! something different and new!" Just because you think it sucks doesn't make it suck you stupid trolling aholes. Grow the hell up and realize a. You're not the gamer divine incarnate b. Some people like things that you don't.

When you can beat the "game" in under 3 minutes, there's something terribly wrong there. I am completely convinced that this got Game of the Year through graphics, 1990's nostalgia, and pretentiousness alone. Giving an alternate example for Game of the Year is pointless because a comparison between this, and say, Grand Theft Auto 5 would be completely meaningless because Gone Home sets out to be art first and foremost; GTA 5 sets out to be a game.

Art of the Year, maybe.

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.
