Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!
Shadow of the Colossus has fallen.
Sigh. So, so close. This game nearly was even better than Ico -- Almost as passionate and emotive as its forerunner, and far more focused and pointed. The game became a rumination on violence in videogames, the alleged 'hero' clearly nothing more than a brutal murdered as the game went on. Numerous clever small game decisions reaffirmed the notion as it continued, and it all looked good.
Then the ending. ARGH.
Without saying anything more, the ending destroyed the point of the game to me.
So, so close. SO close!
But Ico remains the pinacle of videogame art for now.
