** I always assumed that by that "as bad as your sister" note was just something everyone's parents say. Most people with Siblings (even worse with twins) can attest to that. Not necessarily a sign of them having a strained relationship.

* ClicheStorm: The harshest critics describe the main plot in this way. Many argue that [[spoiler:if they had flipped the gender of one of the characters but left everything else intact, the game would have been bashed as a generic teenager love story with an unhealthy message: Run away for love when you're only 18, and rob your own family to do it.]]

to:

*AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The game inspires a lot of these.
** How good is Katie's relationship with her parents? On the one hand, there is some evidence that [[ParentalFavoritism they favor her over her sister]], since her trophies are more prominently displayed, and Katie notes that they let her go all the way around the world,. On the other hand, one note to Sam says that she's "as bad as (her) sister" when it comes to leaving lights on, and Sam notes that their father often "jokes" about sending Katie to a nunnery when she brings guys home.
** The Greenbriars as parents. Did they do as good of a job as they could at raising their somewhat troubled younger daughter, even when she ended up getting into trouble? Or did the, more or less [[spoiler:drive Sam into running away]]?

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Sam [[spoiler: steals ''a lot'' of stuff from her clueless-but-well-meaning family to fund her elopement with Lonnie, much of which is ''on loan'' for her father's job. So... romantic love is worth sacrificing your morals and sabotaging your family's finances? Not to mention Sam abandoning her literary scholarship -- a gateway to her dream career -- for the same reasons.]]



* HypeBacklash: Many critics gave it perfect or near-perfect scores and Game of the Year nominations. Player reaction has been much more divisive, usually coming down to not feeling like it was worth the price or that the story and writing didn't warrant being praised to high heavens.

* TearJerker: There are a number of them:
** Sam's reaction to her parents' "talk" about her and Lonnie, and how it didn't feel like they respected her.
** Sam's reaction to Lonnie going away to join the military, especially the final night up in the attic.
** Sam's father and his publishing career, and how it shows that he's been drinking to deal with it.

** Lonnie had already received her orders to report for duty, so her running off with Sam is basically her going AWOL. That doesn't get you a happy life with your true love, that gets you 5 five years in Leavenworth Prison.

* CriticalDissonance: Reviewers have given it almost universally glowing reviews, but the reaction among players has been considerably more mixed. This is primarily due to the price point ($20 for at most 3 hours of gameplay), the heavy focus on story-telling over gameplay, and the [[spoiler: disputed quality of the romantic subplot]]. Many also puzzled at the comparative implication that in 2013 it was a better game than the likes of ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'', ''VideoGame/MetroLastLight'', ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'', or ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV''.
