The Stanley Parable is a first person exploration game. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end. Contradiction follows contradiction, the rules of how games should work are broken, then broken again. This world was not made for you to understand.

Great 100%

This is the story of Stanley, a person trapped in a surreal world, the world of narrative videogames clichés, with the mysterious narrator as his only ally and adversary . Stanley Parable deals a lot with the issue of freedom, in games and in real life. We do have the options that we believe to have? To have many choices makes any difference? What if the world is determined in such a way that every choice is actually irrelevant? What if destiny ... Read More

Positive points
* Incisive jokes about the game industry.
* You will know the meaning of "experimental gaming design".
Negative points
* Once you are done with it, there is nothing left to do but discussing it with other nerds.

Fair 70%

Good 90%

This game will make fun of you for being a gamer, of itself for being a game and of every little thing about what we expect in a game after many years of playing them. Hillarious writing and awesome voice-acting. A must play.

PS. Pretty short though. Like 4 minutes to beat it :grinning:

Fair 70%

This game is not so fun if you are expecting full action game instead you get philosophical walking simulator the game where you play as Stanley in limited office environment. The game deals with existentialism to the core of how you are as a person or game understand the narrative with guiding from voice narrator. Its simple fun walking simulator but it will teach you some points of perspective. It has quirky moments and also mildly interesting ... Read More
