I'm getting friggin annoyed that people even think there is less game in Gone Home (which I didn't even like that much) than say the latest CoD. If you eliminate the thing they have in common (walking around) Gone Home would be left with exploration and mystery uncoverings. CoD would be left with clicking on people's heads and dog. There. It's a hidden object game.

Just because there are no objectives made up for you doesn't mean there isn't anything to do. I hate the argument because it's stupid idiotic bullshit to remove a giant section of games from the medium because someone can't deal with the fact that people derive enjoyment out of different things. I don't want them sepperated. I want them to influence each other.

I'm replaying Deus Ex: Human Revolution and it's got a lot in common with Gone Home. If you watch closely you can figure out who lives in this apartment. Read their emails to uncover who they are, what they do, who they killed and the code to their safe. Gone Home does environmental storytelling much better because they put more thought into it (it's their main attraction after all) and generated a bunch of unique one-time-use art assets that you probably couldn't do in a game like Deus Ex.

If you want to have your stupid analogy for TV vs. movies then console vs. PC. Think about it. Ten years ago those were fundamentally different but still the same. And short films are It Gets Better and Don't Shit Your Pants. Done.

If someone threw 400 bucks at me and forced me to buy a new console right now then DR3 would be the deciding factor in getting an Xbone.

I love these. That goes on my player immediately.

Sometimes I say your name because it's so much fun. Is that weird?

When they let me transfer my Pokemon I will have all of them except for Genesect and whatever super unique Gamestop promotion legendary Pokemon the latest games are hiding.

Seems like you already found the answer yourself. I did my first run on 1999 mode. I did some amazing stuff with the combat and changed my approach frequently, either because I had to because of ammo constraints or because I wanted to try something new. It never felt boring to me, I even felt like I was playing a new game every half an hour.
