The winner of best adventure game of 2013 goes to… (not point-and-click, we have that in a different category).

 

The Stanley Parable

While there was much discussion among the SSM staff over what could actually be categorised as an adventure game, a verdict was eventually reached: and it may be a little contentious. 2013 saw the rise of a new genre, a mix between narrative and adventure style play that led to our pick for best adventure game being given the tag ‘unique’ ¬†on Steam. This game got people talking, made us all laugh and think hard about our futile existences (occasionally at the same time) and provided hours and hours of unique endings that were constantly surprising and often somewhat jarring. This game was, of course, The Stanley Parable, a game that mocked us and drove us crazy but still had us coming back for more. It is, truly, a meta-adventure not to be missed.
