Eight years after its release, there remains a group of secret seekers looking to unearth Team Ico's final mystery.
cool read! still one of my favorite games
The Team Ico Collection is one of the best discs of this generation, considering it launched at $39.99. Ico looks better in HD than some current gen games and SOTC is SOTC. It's also one of the highest rated this gen. Amazing.
I bought the collection one week ago. SOTC alone is one of the best games I have ever played. the collection is totally worth it.
Reading these comments made me want to buy the game. I bought both SotC and ICO, seems like an emotional trip lies ahead. Which is something very rare in games these days...
Shadow of the Colossus is the best game ever made since Half Life 2 !
2 very different games, but my personal(ALL THE DISAGREES BELONG TO US) list of my favorite gaming experiences 1. Bioshock infinite 1999 mode first playthrough 2. GTA games giving friends 6 stars then giving the playr playing random cheat codes and they have to survive while entering cheat codes 3. Chaos Theory nuff said 4. Halo 2 multiplayer 5. Gears of war 1 As good as half life was and I played it many times due to getting viruses or resetting. Like probably played 10 times more than way through then beat it finally. It is great but it is just well designed set pieces and an okay story
your disagrees are inevitable.
lol the disagrees indeed, but it's cool what you said because it's always the top or worse games, but not top or worse experiences, and I had never thought of that. Like Battlefield 3 - I would give a pretty low score for the game as a whole (shitty sp), but the experience I had @ the multiplayer was simply awesome and funny. But yeah, Half-Life 2 and SotC are way to different to be compared.
Rrrrright... maybe you don't belong in this comments section?
Wow ThichQuangDuck........you really suck. Is that a serious list?
Bioshock Infinite? Bioshock 1 is much much better than Infinite.
@NExxus let the hate flow through them of an perspective other than their own which is why I USED PERSONAL @andrewer These games had relevance to my life not others games are not movies they are not universal meaning or interpretation of just watching images so I don't care all 50 people can disagree and be too scared to say anything @Gespenst Why am I even wasting time with your obvious comment you post just to get agrees @BattleAxe Wow battle Axe do I think for myself and have a different perspective and life than you I am a game design major loved games since the moment my mom handed me a gameboy color so if you don't like the games I like cool I don't give a fuck I am not here to please you. These are games that have relevance to my life and I have learned lessons from. It is like you guys are dissing my Dr. Seuss this is what developed me into who I am. Grow the fuck up and enjoy what you enjoy and let me enjoy what I enjoy
Your list is controversial so your disagrees are understandable, I'm not sure why you felt the need to share these views here but you can hardly complain when even you knew full well that the majority of people would disagree.
GTA San Andreas. Riding a tank. Going to my very first brothel. Rode on monster truck and picked up some girls (I didn't know what CJ was doing with those girls but I thought that he was mugging them in the vehicle). Killed someone with a dildo ( I didn't know what it was back then. I assumed it was like a rubbery and floppy tonfa or nightstick.) Piloted a jet like a boss. Burned down a weed plantation. 6 Stars and trolled the hell out of the police, the Air Force, the army, the marines, the navy and the coast guard. Went to Area 51. Did stunts which would put Nathan Drake to shame. All the women flocked to CJ and all the gangstas respected him. And so much more. Yes, it was a good childhood. Also ate at Cluckin' Bell and rode a tractor. Edit: Turned some poor guy into minced meat when I rode on a harvester.
More like one of the most overrated repetitive desolate games ever :)
Wow that's a long time ago beautiful game. I hope for Japan Studios next installment soon...
Last time I played this on my ps2 I was on hardmode 8...lol my favorite game on ps2 besides ico and Socom2.... Glorydays of gamimg!!! Bubbles @walker
"Ueda originally intended there to be 48 Colossi - the number was cut drastically come the final product." Now make another game with the god damn 36 Colossi that weren't in SotC lol
Now that would be some DLC that I would purchase.
He would probably still be making it
i hope someday i can play this game.... i admire those secret-seekers though.. speciallyy nomad and pikol ^_^..
make sure you play the HD version the simplicity of this game is so eye catching like that of Uncharted
...what happened to The Last Guardian?
More like the Lost Guardian at this stage into its development.. I think when this game eventually releases it wont be able to meet peoples expectations seeing that it was so long into development.
Word on the street is Ueda is back to help see the project through. No mention has been made of his actual role (that I am aware of), even on a producer role would be fantastic.
Lets wait for 10th June. lol
This article makes me sad I just have my Ico and SOTC collection just sitting there unplayed.
Go play it now! Okay?
Awesome article. This is a lost art in games lately. We are so determined to follow where the game takes us and we often times forget the mystery of the world we are in. I am glad that some developers still appreciate the easter egg, and don't "put it in the strat guide" so that everyone finds it with no effort. I remember when original WoW had a thread about finding the Ashbringer. Everyone was reading the lore and looking for the item, fishing every lake they could, and sharing the results. This is why I love gaming.
I love their attitude. For them it's just about immersing yourself in a beautiful game world- soaking it up. It's not about constant action and constant reward- just your own personal meaning creation and experience. As well as appeciating the world as it is in all it's mystery. I'd love a game in which you were just plonked in a world to explore it and gradually uncover it's many mysteries. Fetishized violence wouldn't be necessary, just a really spiritual and enriching experience.
Are any of these on the PSN store?
yes, buy now ASAP!!!!
Pretty sure you can get both ICO and SOC on PSN, and I believe you can get them both at a discounted price.
Don't spend 20$ a piece for them on psn when you can get both on one disc at Gamestop for 20$
