The Stanley Parable

Look! 

I don’t have the time to analyze and study it in detail, but I wholeheartedly recommend that everyone play The Stanley Parable. It takes the metacommentary on game form, autonomy, and narrative structure that I discussed in my article on Bioshock Infinite and my article on Postmodern Games and runs with it to hilarious heights. Its one of the most clever and subversive games that I’ve played in recent years. If someone doesn’t beat me to it, I’ll work on putting out an in-depth analysis of it.
