Is the Stanley Parable a fun to play?

Maybe he wants FoV lower because he's playing on a TV rather than sitting inches from a monitor.


Yes I play on TV from my couch. In Skyrim 75 seemed to be the sweet spot.

Art isn't fun.


That's not the point of art.

I found it highly entertaining, although-- as noted-- it's more like a choose your own adventure book than a game.

Play the demo, if you enjoy it buy it (or wait for a sale if you don't think it's worth $15.)

*Turn Evil can now be cast on players. When used, it applies a small goatee and causes them to explain their diabolical plans while steepling their fingers.

Games are supposed to be fun

You don't like it. We get it.

And other guys, you do like it. Give it a rest.

Like I'm watching middle schoolers go "nuh uh" and "uh huh" over and over with you lot

Fun is subjective. You didn't enjoy it...Oh well... Move on with your life. I enjoyed it, but I knew full well what to expect and had been anticipating the release. I guess if you bought it expecting Portal you WOULD be disappointed.

I agree that TSP is not for everyone, but unlike some people, I'm not going to suggest that it's not for ANYONE. I'd say if you're expecting an action oriented game then you're going to be disappointed because you can't even jump, but if you're interested in an interactive story with many amusing twists and turns (some literally), it's worth buying.

Is it fun to play like Portal 2 or is it more like the first Portal?

This doesn't make any sense.

Well, the first Portal was good but it was just puzzle room after puzzle room after puzzle room and that's it, and Portal 2 was much better since it had more than just puzzle rooms it also had a story that was told through the entire game not just at the end.

I'd say the $15 price tag is a bit high for what it is but then again that's also how I feel about movies in the theater. And you'll probably get more time out of this than you would out of a movie at the theater. So, there's that.
It's a pretty charming little program. Not much to it, but I enjoyed it.

I got it off of eBay for $5, and I just couldn't pass it up at that price.
