I am not only gonna be talking about the Australian 2009 flick The Loved Ones in this little review I am also gonna start out by going down memory lane. Remember freshman year? When late nights in the common room meant stealthy drinking, imagining your female dorm mates naked, and hoping that, that hot girl on the second floor would walk through in her panties again (holy shit that was a moment). Well there was a SPECIFIC part of freshman year that I will remember for the rest of my life… and its not sex.
I have owned Gone Home for a long time and never really sat down to play it. Since I heard it was a narrative experience I wanted to beat it in one burst to maximize immersion. As with many other Valentine’s Days, I was sitting at home not really doing anything. I was more bored than I usually am for some reason and decided to open up my steam library. I saw Gone Home and figured now was as good of time as any. I turned off all the lights in my room, put on my headphones, and launched the game.
