"Each day this week our writer Vaughn will be putting up an article about one particular level, place, moment, in a game that’s really captures the titles essence but because of this there could be spoilers ahead.. It’s called Levelling Out and for day three he’s looking at Shadow of the Colossus.
"The long and tired debate ‘are video games an art form’ is so bulky that I could write many articles citing examples of why. However, this isn’t an article about that topic, and if it was it would be incredibly late to the party. Although I won’t be drawing upon artistic merit, I will be talking about one game that supports the argument more than anything else that’s come in the last few years: Team Ico’s dark and powerful tale of a young mans love for another and the lengths he will go to save her. I am, of course, talking about Shadow of the Colossus - but in particular, the Colossi themselves."
