    why is the game loved so much by everyone around me. it just baffles me. the awards should go to mario and zelda which fill me with so much joy and has a sense of magic. maybe i need to grow beyond this and appreciate other things for what they are and not cloud them with my opinion which i mention every damn time so people look at me. i don’t want to be the only one standing out and waving my flag saying i don’t like the game every time the opportunity arrives. I will grow up and I WILL LET GO OF THIS HATE!!! Please help me god!!!

    This is probably one of the few organization that gave Papers, Please the kind of recognition it deserves. That is, more than what they’re giving Gone Home.

    Best Game? Hell yes, baby!
