why is gone home getting such high scored reviews
« on: August 19, 2013, 05:47:07 PM »
i think it's cool, but not 10/10 cool
not even 9/10 cool
people don't even list negatives for it
you can beat it in a minute

is it just people feeding off of nostalgia for #rare vhs tapes or something
i don't understand

why did the wonderful 101 score lower

video games suck

Good job! I, Viewtifulboy, declare you the CHAMPION!
I'm the official winner of the Viewtiful Victory roleplay championship!

It was more of an experience than anything. It was okay to play through once, but I could see the ending coming from a mile away. Apparently that's supposed to be the point.

like i don't think this game is bad
i just don't understand why reviewers are giving it 10's and poop
it's more like a 6-8/10 depending on how attached you were to it
i just don't understand people saying it's flawless and poop

It's basically an interactive novel.

No, it's not that. Not even close.

It's really the "interactive" part of the story that saves it. Were it an actual novel or movie, it wouldn't get nearly as good reviews.

oh god people are actually saying that they only gave this good reviews out of fear of making feminists mad

ahahahahahahahahahaha

you can see where this game is going less than twenty minutes in and it jerks you around for three hours with attempts to distract you

if this were an actual novel or hollywood movie it would be laughed off and critically panned for being pretentious and predictable

i regret that i spent my money on this but i at least bought DuckTales Remastered in the same purchase

honestly once you sort of get that [spoiler]the Oscar guy was a pedophile who abused Terry at Thanksgiving 1963 and realize that is the reason why he's obsessed with JFK's assassination[/spoiler] the whole lesbian love story part becomes less interesting

What the hell is Gone Home? I saw something about it in Game Informer but the article didn't really talk about Gameplay at all, it only talked about the "feelings" it was supposed to give you.

I intercourse ing HATE when articles about games leave out information on the gameplay

the gameplay is basically an fps with no guns or platforming or puzzles
you just look around your house
go walk around your house but don't do anything crazy just pick up stuff in your house
house walking simulator
