Island Of The Lost
HIGH Figuring out one of the first puzzles after confusing the hell out of myself.
LOW Getting distracted by collectibles and losing the fox in the second world.
WTF Trying to decide what the ending is really saying.
There are games, and there is art. Are the two fated to be mutually exclusive? Personally, I'd say the answer is no.
I completely agree with Brad's assessment of ICO as art—the game really is that beautiful. You'll have countless moments where you just have to stop and soak all of the scenery in. This sleeper hit of the year is simply too good to be missed.
