The Stanley Parable: This is not a game review.
Play The Stanley Parable. Or don’t.
If you don’t choose to play The Stanley Parable, then you will not be playing The Stanley Parable and the only real outcome of not playing The Stanley Parable is not understanding why it’s a bad decision for choosing not play The Stanley Parable.
Playing The Stanley Parable will reveal to you that the choice to play The Stanley Parable was the best choice you have made all day. If, for some reason, you have failed to experience this feeling of correctness for having made the choice to play The Stanley Parable, please make sure that you are, in fact, a real person.
Believing that you should be real while simultaneously being aware of the possibility that you are not real can lead you, but are not limited to, experiencing symptoms of confusion, panic, nausea, dizziness, giddiness, unwarranted laughter, warranted laughter, sudden sadness after laughing, bitter scorn of the ephemeral nature of the universe and implosive flatulence*.
If you are experiencing these side effects and your consciousness has not collapsed into a quantum singularity, please contact the local authorities about your existential malfunction.
Or, you can just play The Stanley Parable again until you experience the correct feeling.
*implosive flatulence is caused when your intestinal bacteria has experienced an existential crisis and collapsed into a quantum singularity. There is no associated odor for this phenomena.4 notes
