I was 1 of the about 30 people who have bought Ico when it first came out. I was drawn into its atmosphere, the strange world and the two (lost) main characters. I feel so nostalgic when I remember the time I played Ico. This game felt so sad and so satisfying at the same time. Very beautiful.
the problem is that Shadow of the Colossus really raised the standard for me, therfore I couldn't enjoy the relatively slow paced sluggish controls of Ico, dragging a girl and running away from the shadows didn't seem very appealing to me
have you played SotC?
The ending of FF10 is the saddest I have ever seen. I knew something was wrong with Tidus but never guessed what exactly and when Yuna run to him and he opened his arms to embrace her ...
I have never cried like that on a video game before or after that one.
As for FF7 yes, it is very good one extraordinary storyline.
yes such a sad ending, and that embrace
also that teary kiss underwater was one of the most romantic scenes I saw in a video game, really moving.
FF8 had such a well done story too, very romantic and loved the characters there
