Hidden gem of 2013 that finally got its whole version in Ultra Deluxe

I've never seen something like The Stanley Parable, and I never will. Trully amazing

Iconic, funny, smart, made me feel a whole range of emotions. Really highlights video games as a powerful artform that no other artforms can replace. Everyone should play it.

Perhaps not as impactful as it was upon initial release and perhaps lacking upon subsequent playthroughs, but it is still an extremely entertaining fun rabbit hole into game design and player psychology
