Approved By: The FanlistingsI was a latecomer to Shadow of the Colossus. I first discovered the game after watching a playthrough of it on YouTube, and, a few years later, decided to buy the game myself. As a Playstation 2 game, it was a bit dated, but after about five minutes in, I hardly noticed.

The game is breathtaking. Although the story is simple, the way it is told is epic. From the monstrous colossi to the wistful, peaceful landscapes to its glorious soundtrack—this game is always a breath of fresh air when I return to it. I'm glad that I ignored the questioning look a friend gave me when he saw me take the box to the cashier, and I'm glad that my Playstation 2 continues to be in functional condition so that I can replay it over and over again. Shadow of the Colossus is definitely one of—if not, is—my favorite games of all time.
In this land, there exist colossi that are the incarnations of those idols. If thou defeat those colossi the idols shall fall.
