Best Adventure Game
Best Adventure Game of 2013
Gone Home is the rare game that transcends its mechanics and elevates into an emotional experience. Combining first-person exploration with wonderfully choreographed narration, Gone Home challenges both convention and trope. To explain the game is to spoil it, but what first appears to be a ghost story soon reveals itself to be a beautifully touching experience that is at once deeply resonant and nostalgic for the time-lost 1990s. Gone Home is a game with heart, as much a case for games as art as it is a great way to spend three hours.
