I really enjoyed gone home and found the story entertaining and compelling. I don't care about social agendas or making games seem smart. I've taken in plenty of other non-game fiction and seen similar stories. Sucks to know that I'm wrong though.
I chose option B and killed Micheal and i feel a bit cheated as well. Not because i can't get 100% (although i was in the middle of the epsilon story arc and now that's fucked) but because the game (via Devon Weston) suggests that someone will die. Period. Nothing about Option C or anything leading up to it suggests that they would all band together and anyone that says that is being a complete dick about it.
I deliberately didn't choose C because I liked Franklin and didn't want him to die. I liked MIcheal the least so he was the one i chose. I didn't regret my decision being that i was looking through the guise of "1 of these 3 ppl had to die. Period" Then i come online to discuss endings and such and see that option C keeps everyone alive.
I'm not mad at the consequential nature of it to suggest that people may die but the game was completely misleading about the way it handled Option C.
Thinking about the game too hard leads people to think that Franklin would be killed. The dude stated that Michael or Trevor would die. Never said anything explicit about Franklin dying.
I defeated Penguin and Black Mask and rescued the warden. The warden needs me to find the secret entrance to his office back in the industrial portion of the prison. The thing is I have no idea where the secret entrance is. I think it has something to do with the water pipe in the sewers that I couldn't get past before right before the Solomon Grundy boss fight. I have no idea how to get back there. What do I do? Did I have the wrong idea?
The discussion regarding what is and isn't a game is useless to me. What does it matter? It's a way for some People to just outright dismiss a game. If you absolutely have to define it, Gone Home is a point and click adventure game. No one questioned if those kinds of games were "games" before, it's just that some loud minority (not you) decided that they wanted to start dismissing games before they even played them.
