Whitless Letter to: Stanley
Things have been absolutely crazy lately and I haven’t had much chance to post here. I have a couple of blog posts in the works, BUT in the meantime, here is the latest video I did for one of my favourite games of 2013, the Stanley Parable:
And yes, that is Errol performing the part of the narrator. He ad libbed a couple of the lines. Can you guess which ones?
I loved the Stanley Parable. Like…REALLY loved it. I mean, I loved a lot of games that came out this year. But in a game year that had amazingly grim themes throughout many titles, Stanley Parable was simply content to make me laugh. And laugh I did.
Honest, I would put up a review of the game or some such thing but talking too much about it would give away so much goodness that’s best left as a surprise. Well…I guess the one thing I will say is that Stanley Parable is more an experience than a game. But it’s a HECK of an experience.
It’s clever and witty and makes us question our role as gamers. If you haven’t tried it out, I would HIGHLY recommend it…unless you don’t like that sort of thing. In which case…don’t? But you’ll be missing out :D.
