Gone Home Review

Gone Home is a powerful and elegant video game that keeps you invested and interested without having the fate of the world in your hands.

Mass Effect trilogy, Bioshock infinite and Saint Row 4 all suffer from constant increase in the loss of life. Gone Home strips away the universal stakes while still feeling important and...
