I think this was a poor use of my money when I finished it.I couldn't help but to think that the story couldn't hold up on its own so it required the use of "pretending to be a horror game" and mid 90s nostalgia that specifically targets the Caucasian audience who had a Christian family and watched TV shows during that time like the x-files on VHS tapes. What some reviewers and people like Patrick don't realize is that Gone Home only really works for a specific kind of audience, which is the late 20s, Caucasian with Christian parents born in the US, that has a current liberal positions. Basically people like Patrick. Now, I'm not saying that there isn't anything wrong with that, it's just facts about who he is and it's fine that this game specifically panders to that kind of audience who really are most game reviewers. I just wish they would realize that the reasons why they enjoy it, are just not applicable to people that don't have those personal origins.
