Re: Best Games of this Generation

After a lot of thought, I'm adding Gone Home to my list of nominations. I was initially hesitant simply because the game does not match up well with the epic games that tend to define "best of" lists.

But Gone Home is perhaps the first game I've ever played where I can't think of a single thing I would change about it, and nothing I would want to add to it. It only lasts three hours, it tells a relatively simple story, and it doesn't have much in the way of gameplay... but what it does it does perfectly.

And I would love to see many more games follow the "short and sweet and can be finished in a single sitting" example that Gone Home sets. Gone Home shouldn't be penalized for not being epic or vast, it should be rewarded.
