Go Play Gone Home

Gone Home is one of those video games that deserves a lot of neat, little superlatives to accompany it.  But to keep things simple, let's just say it is a fantastic game and well worth playing.  You don't have to take my word for it.  You can go to this website: scroll down to where it say "Gone Home" and read any number of articles penned by talented writers about virtually every aspect of the game.  Alternatively, you can visit The New York Times, Slate, or one of the many other non-video game press sources that adored it too.

There's a lot I can't say about Gone Home.  Most details end up tainting the experience, and what I really want is for people who haven't played this game to go do it.  Right now.  All you need to know is that you're a woman visiting her family's new house and discovering no one there and no immediate explanation for their mysterious absences.

Go investigate.
