The mum of a 5-Year old girl writes to Official PlayStation 2 Mag. and lets them how know much of a video game fan her daughter is; among other things she sings "Incy wincy spider climbed up the colossus' snout!" to her teachers.
Come on Team ICO, give us info on the next game already. if not for us, but for the children. Think about the Children and that five year old girl.
for gods sake will someone think about the children LOL
ohhhhhh the humanity, where is chuck norris when you need em?
we really need to hear something soon
A 5-Year old girl being fan of Shadow Of... means one thing. Girls are gamers too and love the great games as much as boy do. Not all girls are Wii fans. If at 5 she is fan of SOTC, I can't imagine what a great gamer she could become later. Superb post and news.
My ideal game from this team would be: SOTC2 with about 50 diffrent monsters. Full HD nd more interaction with them. Say for example there are 3 monsters in one area and your climbing up one, One with the big mallet sees you then swings, and u jump off right befor it hits smashing the monster to bits.!
will be a dream game come true. Just imagine how deep you could get into that game with all of the *right resources.
Great little girl knows what games are the best games.
a Zelda killer? Just asking. I heard a lot people calling it Zelda killer.
why must one good game be a killer of another there both great games leave it at that
that's what people called it. Google Shadow of the Colosuss Zelda Killer.
Hah no it was never supposed to be in competition with Zelda in any way whatsoever. Now if you said Okami then I'd say yeah, then again I absolutely love that game.
It pretty much is. I cried at the end of Shadow of the Colossus. Zelda:TW and OOT were both good games...but...not tear-worthy. The storylines lacked and the action paled in comparison to SotC. No game has the imagination and sheer scale of this game. If you've never played it, you're missing out. The true next-generation of gaming already happened on the PS2, guys...
The two games are completely different in terms of gameplay and visual style, so how can u compare the two? Anyways, a 5 year old girl..I doubt she can beat the first colossus lol..
God bless her heart...and Playstation of course:) Fingers crossed for SOTC2 on PS3!
Shoot the parents ! Id never let my 5 year old seed play any videogames. That's f*cked up. Go buy some Lego for this kid and develop her creativity/fantasy. I bet the mother just bought a console "to take care of" her daughter, so she can place her lazy, fat ass in front of a TV, make out with some random dude and smoke crack. Just look at how stupid the mother is: She wrote to a PS2 mag that her 5 year old daughter is addicted to a videogame which is rated +12 and she's proud of that (just wait for Jack Thompson to step on the scene)! Ridiculous... Disagreeing with my post doesn't mean this is right ! Fact: A 5 year old playing a +12 videogame is WRONG ! Fact: Her mother buying it and let her daughter play it is WRONG ! Fact: Signs of the 5 year old's addiction are clearly obvious (singing every theme song,mother says how much of a videogame fan she is,etc.) ! Fact: Officially reporting her illegal actions to a PS Mag is STUPID ! Everyone who disagrees or says this is 'cute/cool/whatsoever' is way below the average IQ level. Ever heard of something called "Law" ? Look it up in a dictionairy if you ain't familiar with it.
What's wrong with games? Fantasy games/RPGs can spark much more creativity and inspiration that dolls can. There's nothing wrong with it. The girl is not a psychopath and not a murdered so obviously it hasn't had much of a negative effect on her. I think it's great that even one young such as she can enjoy video games.
although its a nice story kids will have plenty of time to play games but reading n writing practices should be ingrained from early in a childs life. good habits die hard and nothing shapes your future like grades do (unfair but thats the truth). I remember people effin up their scores and marks when certain games were released. championship manager killed a lot of my college friends grades through constant late nights amongst other things. lets hope she doesn't grow up to be the biggest fanboy/girl the world has ever seen. nice story al the same
At least one who thinks parents should act responsible. I don't know if I should be shocked that a mother is so stupid to send a letter to a mag about her 5 year old or some people in here simply ignore the fact, that this story is about a 5 year old playing a "action fighting" game (its not about the game, great or not), its about the kid (and her mother). I am not that radical, though. I have a 6 and a 9 year old. They are allowed to play games. But the time is limited, also which games they can play is limited. Sometimes I have to admit, that the smaller one gets drawn into the games the bigger one is playing. And sometimes I allow him to play T games. But no shooters! (well, except Ratchet, maybe). Shaking my head...but, well, my kids come home telling me their friends (6 or so) are great at Halo...people simply don't care.
Says the mom bought the game used at Gamestop... Such a pity, if you ask me.
now there's a girl with taste. and it truly is easy for anybody to realize the greatness that is sotc, even a 5 year old.
I don't want to see Shadow 2 until at least mid 09, Uncharted is already achieving photo-realism with it's graphics so by that time NOTHING will touch the PS3 and we will get a Colossus game worthy of Hollywood oscars for cinematography,effects,story,a rt direction, you name it. not that a video game would ever be in the running for that stuff but that is the level of quality the PS3 can achieve further into it's development cycle.
moms trying to get free crap...........
looks like on the PS3.
A SotC sequel
I just hope the girl didn't mentioned the part were you stab the Colossus to death at school...or we will see here in counseling for a LONG time O.o :P
5 year old girld cant even hold controllers because their fingers arnt long enough. I know this because ive seen it.
I guess that's true, but...maybe she's a freak??? At five, she conquered 16 colossi. This Summer... Witness the start of something extraordinary... Mask 2: A New Beginning This time, it's for real!
game is it really that good
ICO is also a masterpiece
it was an amazing game. It's one of those games that you will never forget after you've played it. The gameplay was completely original. The satisfaction of finally taking down one of the colossus was unlike any other boss battle to me. There are alot of great games out there, but alot of them seem to be similar to eachother. There aren't alot of games very similar to Shadow of the Colossus in my opinion. You can tell that Shadow of the Colussus drew inspiration from some games like all games do, but the execution of the game was unlike any other.
At about the same age she became a big fan of Godzilla. We bought Godzilla Monster Melee for the GC and she knew all of the monster's names. She's spout off about Rodan or some other monster, and none of the other kids her age knew what the heck she was talking about. It was amusing because she was really into the Disney Princesses and Godzilla.
i cant wait for the next team ico project!!! P L A Y B 3 Y O N D
i like the little girls song but i made it up three years ago!! i even posted it her at N4G!!
