YMMV: The Stanley Parable
  • Awesome Music:
  • Colbert Bump: To say that people learned about Kevin MacLeod because of Who Likes To Party is an understatement.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
  • Jerkass Woobie: The Narrator, depending on which ending you get. The Confusion ending implies that he's not really in control at all and is just as controlled and trapped as Stanley.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • EIGHT! Explanation 
    • OH, DID U GET THE BROOM CLOSET ENDING? THEB ROOM CLOSET ENDING WAS MY FAVRITE!1 XD Explanation 
  • Periphery Demographic: TotalBiscuit is a mechanically-focused gamer who will forgive a crappy story for good mechanics, and he generally doesn't like "games" like Dear Esther and Gone Home. That said, he dubbed The Stanley Parable one of the best games of its year.
  • That One Achievement: The HD version goes to town on parodying this. The top three "impossible" achievements require you to spend an entire Tuesday playing the game, to not play the game for five years, and the final one is completely impossible to get. The first two can be acquired by adjusting your computer's date and time settings, the third seems to be handed out at random, if YouTube evidence is to be believednote .
  • Unwinnable by Insanity: Happens in the original mod when you get off of the elevator between the time when you push the button and when the elevator doors close.
