Suffice to say I really liked The Stanley Parable HD but I doubt I'll be doing any extensive interpretive work considering this says everything I want to say on the subject.
NIER on the other hand is an ongoing project for me as a writer. It might be foolhardy to for me to try and interpret a game so openly bleak, but I think I'm getting a working thing going calling it the "graveyard of videogames" (ie it matches a narrative about death and dying with snippets of gameplay from various dead genres.) But you'll definitely be seeing more from me about NIER in the future.
