The Stanley Parable - Half Life 2 mod
<This mod is free, but does require Steam and SourceSDK Base 2007 in order to function>

It is a completely choice driven, interactive narrative. One of my friends introduced me to it, and he (and thousands of others) were recommended it by Notch (creator or Minecraft).

There are six endings, each of which is incredible.

The mod itself won't take more than an hour for you to complete, but it is well worth it to give it a try.

The narrator (Kevan Brighting) is phenomenal, and the writing is fantastic. Even though all of the dialogue is based around scripted events and map triggers, you really feel like the narrator is talking specifically to you.

It incorporates a moderate amount of 4th wall breaking, but it is done so deliberately, and is executed perfectly.

Considering the mod is completely free, you owe it to yourself to give it a try (Assuming you have the required software installed).

Also, even if you aren't interested in playing the mod, I have some links you should look at.
