i recently finished ico a couple of weeks ago. ico was developed by team ico, who have recently made shadow of the colossus (which i still have yet to try!). it’s a wonderful ps2 game with brilliant graphics and original ideas. The many game designers who admire ico, deemed me responsible to try it out. although the gameplay can get a bit repetitive at times, the story (although simple) is emotionally engaging and helped me play ico right to the end.
here’s a fan-made video of ico (warning: contains spoilers! Don’t watch if you are going to play ico later on)
If you’ve got a ps2, you are hereby decreed to hire out (or buy) ico
