    Gone Home features a great reminder of what the 90's felt like and has tremendous voice acting. Apart from that, the exploration gets pretty dull once you've picked up the umpteenth identical cup or toilet paper roll, and the story is incredibly boring and hard to piece together; vague clues and tidbits throughout the house seem like artificial pandering of the game's short length, asGone Home features a great reminder of what the 90's felt like and has tremendous voice acting. Apart from that, the exploration gets pretty dull once you've picked up the umpteenth identical cup or toilet paper roll, and the story is incredibly boring and hard to piece together; vague clues and tidbits throughout the house seem like artificial pandering of the game's short length, as you'll likely need to play it again just to ask, "Wait, what did I just read?". Coupled with a terrible cliffhanger ending and no redeeming moral qualities to the characters, and you've got a game that's only good if you REALLY want to re-live the 90's. Expand

    Ultimately, Gone Home is the same game no matter what platform it is played on. It brings the same emotions, anxieties, and intrigue to the table now as it did years ago. There is no denying, however, that the versatility offered by the Switch version fits the calm nature of the walking sim, whether it is played docked or not—plus it’s just plain cool to experience the story in such close quarters.

    It’s quite amazing what Gone Home was able to accomplish through minimal action and a highly believable, immersive setting. It still resonates even after all these years — and not many games have accomplished what it has in terms of a slice-of-life, heartfelt story that comes together in a realistic environment.

    Recommended for people with detective spirit, explorers or voyeurs. For those who do not look for a game to be eternal but to get lost. Play it in English because in this way it offers the best experience, do it in the dark, on a rainy night, in portable mode.
