The Stanley Parable Ultra Deluxe: What Does This Game Mean?
Mind Control. Player Psychology. Meta-Narratives. Satire. How do you define something that is constantly trying to chang e its identity? How do you categorize the un-categorizable? How do you begin to understand something that laughs at all your attempts to try and do so? Through the video game The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe, I’d like to show off my attempt at doing so, as well as my slow descent into madness.

Video games have a capacity for storytelling and immersion that other mediums cannot even hope to achieve. And yet they are seen as nothing more than a silly past-time. An escape. A hobby for the lazy. I’d argu ... gue against that notion. As the gaming industry has evolved, both larger AAA games as well as small time indie-games have been telling more and more complex stories. Some of these stories I’d like to share with you. Hi, I’m Pranav, and welcome to My Gaming Library.
