The Stanley Parable is the “Being John Malkovich” of video games, a complex and shapeless digital creature, that we will play over and over again, sometimes staying with raised eyebrows and a sea of questions, with the only certainty of having experienced something as much surreal as poetic.
This game is great, 10/10, really cool, well made masterpiece but its of course not for everyone, this is more like an interactive movie rather than a game like gta or skyrim, don’t expect anything about gameplay after all it’s a walking simulator (but a great one!) play this game if you like games like superluminal, gone home, what remains of edith finch or firewatch…
The Stanley Parable has this provocative and perpetual elusiveness that aches to break whatever system it’s applied to. Perhaps it's part of a weapons-grade disinformation campaign appointed to destroy all videogames, or maybe it was commissioned to wreck game criticism. Through any interpretation The Stanley Parable is equally hilarious and genuine, and if nothing else it’s going to merit inclusion in any serious discussion of its medium.
The Stanley Parable is built upon a single, simple premise, and only offers a few hours of entertainment. That said, they were a few hours unlike any I've experienced playing games before. If you're a fan of experimental indie projects or just in the mood for a fun detour from your typical gaming adventure, look no further.
The Stanley Parable is a great experience that you need to experience if you love videogames. It makes fun of popular ways of storytelling in games, and does it in a way that is fun to see and to play.
Basically a variation on the concept of a Russian doll, with some of the layers containing unexpected satirical diversions. Although if you had the chance to play the original mod, this overhaul has less new ideas than one would hope for. [Issue#236]
Great Game. Many people hate the narrator and his incessant strings of speech, but without him there isn't a game. The gameplay of all the versions are absolutely utterly incredible. I am talking FABULOUS, STUPENDUS, OUTRAGEOUSLY GREAT, IMPOSSIBLY WONDERFUL, TEEMING WITH CREATIVITY. VERY ORIGINAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS GAME IS [THE BEST] NO POSSIBLE WAY TO CONTEST THIS GAME. Try it for yourself. I mustn't spoil it for anyone.
This game is alright. It's nothing amazing, and it's not really a "game", but it's the story of a man named Stanley who goes through a very mysterious life changing event with a sarcastic narrator reacting to the choices you make. Way too short for 15 USD, so I'd say add about 20 more endings and more secrets and this would justify the price a lot more. It's witty and humorous with funny dialog, sometimes dramatic, sometimes deep (even though I kind of hate saying "deep", that's what it is) and in about 4 hours and you've pretty much seen everything there is to see. Overall, not bad, just not long enough for the selling price.
idea of this game is really interesting, but the realisation, imo is bad. there is a tv show "Severance", and its awesome, really awesome, but this game is just... iunno its really boring just to walk and do nothing, also its too short
Idea is original, game is interesting, but paying 15 bucks for a "1 Hour to Complete" game is bad. Moreover, that 1 hour was actually boring. Most of that 1 hour passes by listening the narrator. Even 5 $ seems a lot for this game.
SummaryThe Stanley Parable HD Remix is an updated version of the Half-Life 2 mod The Stanley Parable. It 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...
