Review: The Stanley Parable, Play It Again, Stan | GamerTell

Like Dear Esther, The Stanley Parable falls into a certain subset of games that began life as a Half-Life 2 mod and later went on to become full-fledged games powered by the now aging Source Engine. While the original mod had garnered a sort of cult-following, it never really made waves in the popular eye. Developed by Galactic Cafe, The Stanley Parable—and its HD counterpart (which is what I’m actually reviewing)—aims to make players think way outside of the box while providing critical commentary as to the nature of video games as a medium. After only a few minutes of play, players will discover The Stanley Parable’s dirty little secret: it’s more of a psychological study than it is a game.
