I recently cheated from my normal day and found free time to play a video game. (I felt guilty.) The game I played was Shadows Of The Colossus, it was fun and quite deep. Come to find out Shadows Of The Colossus has so many layers to it. Unfortunately I didn’t finish the game and went to youtube to see the ending. (More guilt.) The ending is beautiful and continues to the next game which is Ico. After finishing the game, technically I did finish it, I looked videos about the game and I ran into those one called Games as Lit 101. This video is so good. Breaks down the game to a book research level. You have to see it.

If you haven’t played Shadows Of The Colossus you need to. If this video hasn’t pushed you to play it then I don’t know what will.

Just came across this. I’m glad you enjoyed the video! My goal with the whole series is to help people understand video games better, so I’m glad to hear that was accomplished for you regarding this classic.

    You nailed it. I’m looking forward to you doing Ico. You do a good job of talking about the game in a way that I felt that I have played the game right along with you.

      I’m looking forward to that too, whenever it happens! I have entirely too many sequels people keep asking me for, but it’ll happen eventually. The Last Guardian someday as well.
