If I like games like Portal would like The Stanley Parable?
Is it fun to play like Portal 2 or is it more like the first Portal, if not like either then what game is it like?

It's not really a game, more like an interactive story. Depending on where you walk to the narrator comments differently and the story changes.

This might be the dumbest topic I've ever read on gamefaqs.

TSP doesn't really have puzzles. What you're mostly doing is walking and hitting a few switches here and there while a narrator talks to you.

It's a very amusing and entertaining game - definitely worth a purchase. Just don't expect anything lengthy (2-3 hours total before things get repetitive).

Sounds more like Lifeless Planet minus the sci-fi stuff.
Lifeless Planet is a great game with a great story.

It's a love it or hate it thing. I personally love it. You've got to be a certain type of person to "get" it.

If you liked Portal you'll love Stanley. It's sense of humor is so similar it feels like a Valve title.

I won't spoil anything, but I'll say to get the most out of it be sure to play it multiple times over in a row and explore every nook and cranny. Every time you restart during the same session it's a different experience.

Oh and get the demo too. It's its own game in itself.
