Can gaming be therapeutic? Read this emotional account of how Shadow of the Colossus has helped one gamer cope with his child's cancer.
Good story. Makes me want to give my son a hug.
Reminds me of that serious Adam Sandler movie.
Wow, that was a great piece.
Wow. This is heartbreaking.
Thumbs up to gaming....
This only reaffirms how beautiful and touching this game is, whether watched or played. I will never forget it.
Amazing story. Life is a different experience for everyone, and so are video games. I really want to play Shadow of the Colossus again!
Great story. I hope your daughter makes it.
Wonderful article, wonderful.
broke my heart , best wishes to your daughter
Wow. Very moving. Hope she's going to be OK.
my most anticipated game this year. i really need to play this one
They just made 2 Games that has defined and changed the way how Gaming is to be Played. Btw, Its truly Touching. Hats Off to Team ICO & this Father. She will be Fine, God is with U. & we all wish her the Best. Don't loose Hopes and conquer everything no matter wat comes in ur way like the Collossi.
Thats what people needs, hope in some kind of form. Its really touching story and I send best wishes to his daughter. I have less tragic story, but I have rare psychical disease Manic depressive psychosis. This illnes doesn't threatens me on life, but I¨ve gotta tell ya. life isn't easy with it. I have to say, that games is one of the best cure in my depressive periodes and thats probably why I love this "art/emotional" games so much. I fell in love with Limbo, because kind of remides me my state of mind in this depressive moments. Stay healthy people...
This story needs to be bookmarked for the next time someone claims games can't offer deep emotional experiences. Amazing article.
My prayers to your daughter and your family. Pray to God. John 16:22 Therefore you now have sorrow but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice and your joy no one will take from you. And in that day you will ask me nothing. Most assuredly I say to you whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. Ask and you shall receive that your joy may be full.
Heartbreaking but hopeful - thanks so much for sharing.
Nice to see a lack of trolls or haters as well, just nice users wishing goodwill to father and daughter and appreciating a masterpiece game. I don't think I've ever seen an article here with no disagrees at all! My faith in this site is restored.
Thank you all for taking the time to read and comment. Your well wishes are greatly appreciated.
