I have no idea what to expect out of these games
If you read this signature, then that meant that I had control of what you read for 5 SECONDS!!

While I haven't played Gone Home. You are in the best spot to start The Stanley Parable, the less you know before you start the better, IMHO.

Gone Home is the best 30 second lesbian romance ever conceived.

Don't buy the former, but the latter without looking up any information on it (or play the demo).

And I guess if you're like me and don't care much to download the demo, watch this guy play the demo

Gone Home is bad. Stanley Parable is good.

Play the demo for Stanley Parable to see if you like it. Note that the demo has nothing to do with the full game.
Every time you point out that something is an opinion Jesus shoots a kitten in the face.

Heard mixed things on Gone Home, I'd avoid it for now.

The Stanley Parable on the otherhand is actually quite interesting, just don't look up any guides for it or anything. It has multiple endings. Remember that.

The Stanley Parable feels expensive for what it is at $12-15, but it's a unique experience among games...almost like you're being punk'd (I'd have said "candid camera" but how many people would know what that was?)

The longer you wait, the more of a chance someone will rattle off a spoiler without thinking about it ruining your potential experience. I'd play the demo and if that seemed fun/funny/interesting to you, buy it... if it doesn't? Well you can wait for a sale but good luck not having the game spoiled.

The first is a giant joke soaked in "feel bad for us" juices.

The second is solidly overpriced but probably worth it on sale.
Shooting blanks, every time, all the time.

I still remember that show...

...And how they "Closed" the Texas border one time. Informing US residents traveling between states that the state was "Full".

But yeah, you absolutely need to get The Stanley Parable *sooner* rather than later if you're interested in it. It can get you 2-4 hours of entertainment (If you play it properly and see most of what it has to offer).

It may be a bit steep, but if you're serious about playing it at some point, getting it now is the best route; Spoilers in that game aren't just things you overlook and continue playing--they *are* the game experience as a whole.

Gone Home will most likely end up in an Indie Bundle in the future, but it's bad as everyone has pointed out.
Are we not men?
