Eta:what am I missing with the ico games?
I love it but I think Ico is one of those games that most people who play it today for the first time might think, "What's the big deal?"
It's essentially a 3rd person puzzle/platformer with a beautiful art style, music, and story which is mostly told through subtext.
If I had to compare it to one thing, I'd say it's similar to one of the 3d Prince of Persia games, but with more simplified combat and puzzles.
Shadow of the Colossus shares the same art style, also has beautiful music, and a really interesting story. It's more centered around finding and fighting giant, well...colossi in a big, mostly desolate, open world.
Ico is a good game and Shadow is GREAT but I think what I like most about them both are their atmosphere and mood.
ETA: You probably have it on your wishlist, but you should pick this up: LINK
