what are some games that go beyond the superficial majority? games that actually try to convey a message, games that have artistic integrity, games that have literary merit...etc.
These games are so deep that it's pretty much a rabbit hole with no end.
You know what? Gone Home may be shit, it may not be a game, it may push a Tumblr agenda, etc., but I think it deserves credit for having decent graphics, when so many indie game are "retro" 8-bit shit. In that area, it was a breath of fresh air.
Gone Home's indie graphics aren't Undertale.
I really enjoyed this one. It may have been more of an interactive story than anything, but at least the proceeds go to a good cause and it isn't some pretentious sjw bullshit like gone home or depression quest.
this. And it calls itself a VN so "not a game" isn't really much of a criticism.
Sure the story is a bit snowflakey but it was well-told and interesting, unlike fucking Gone Home which other than being about a lesbian, was the most generic romance story ever.
