You Are Not the Hero HQ (PC)

When was the last time you played a game, any game really, where you walked into someone's home, nonchalantly opened drawers, cabinets, picked locks, upturned a bed and talked to the freaking homeowner in hopes of finding something you could loot? Oh, right before this game? Yeah I thought so.
