I'd sure like to play that Nico game concept (SotC prototype). Imagine-- multiplayer SotC with 24 Colossi!

Everything is epic in Shadow of the Colossus-- I got to jump on a FLYING ENEMY and run around on it, stabbing its weak points as it soared around at high speeds! Every battle amazed me, and the world captivated me with its dazzlingly beautiful environments.

Score: 10.0 (Classic!)

A simple, yet beautiful tale of a young man willing to take on impossible odds to bring his loved one back from the dead. This game is just pure emotion.

The feeling of loneliness as you go across the empty and barren Forbidden Lands on your faithful steed, the feeling of awe and wonder as you gaze upon the 16 colossi, the feeling of triumph once you figure out how to scale each beast, the feeling of relief as you plunge your last stab that takes away the colossus's life, the feeling of guilt as you watch it crash to the ground, and the feeling of determination as you realize you are getting ever closer to bringing back your loved one.

Despite the fact that this kind of game is really only meant to be played a few times due to it's puzzle like nature, (i.e. once you know the weaknesses of the colossi, the game's pretty easy) I still find myself coming back to this game over and over. I love it so much.

Score: 10.0 (Classic!)

You can climb around on lots of pretty brown architecture that occasionally tries to kill you.

Insert random pretentious crap here. It's also a kickass game where you horse-jump onto a dragon!

This game is beautiful. The designers were careful to not add anything to the game that was not needed. The environment is mainly empty to show that this is a abandoned land. The way the horse works is great. It may feel clunky but keep in mind that while on the horse you do not control the horse, you control wanderer on the horse. So it makes sense if the horse will sometimes ignore your constant pulling. Wanderer also moves realistically. There i a real struggle shown while he is trying to climb and stab a colossus. Im all for games that change the control to reinforce a games story. It was the same in Silent Hill 2 so its odd to hear people love that but complain about this. The story is simple but it really grabs your emotions. It reminds me of a Studio Ghibli film kinda. The magical feeling they give me is present in this game. Maybe thats just me but thats how I feel. The contrast between riding your horse and fighting keeps the game from getting boring. This game is a classic.

Score: 10.0 (Classic!)
