AWESOMEoutof10's David Chandler knows that The Stanley Parable is a game like no other, so he gave it a review like no other. "The truth, the reader discovered, is that The Stanley Parable warrants anyone’s consideration. It was truly that simple. Since, however, the reader felt compelled to read on, the narrator felt obliged to elaborate, which suits the subject at hand. After all, isn’t compulsion the reason we play games in the first place? Don’t they serve as distractions from the mundane yet paradoxically employ rigid structural and narrative boundaries?"
