Major Spoilers Ahead. The first time I heard about this game is when GiantBomb gave it their #3 or #4 game of the year for 2013. They all seem to really like the game, so I picked it up on steam. I agree that it's a great story but I think it is a terrible "game." The environment and gameplay don't have much of an impact on the narrative. I admit that in the first hour I had this sense of dread as I walked around the empty house, but then It becomes obvious that I am just going to be reading a love story the whole time, and nothing else is going to happen. Gone Home would have been an awesome short story, but having to walk down a semi-linear path to access the story is not fun. It is a really good story though.
