Mentioned in every "video games as art" argument, Shadow of the Colossus is a stunning experience no matter what your opinion is on the debate. After ICO, we knew game developer Team ICO was one to watch, and thankfully Sony threw a ton of marketing might behind this title, making it successful both critically and commercially.

Shadow of the Colossus is fairly simple -- you'll have to hunt down and kill these enormous colossi that are roaming the land. Each offers unique challenges in both getting to and fighting them, and each has a glowing weak spot you can find and attack as you climb up these giants. But since there's only 16 enemies to find and nothing really else to do, you wouldn't think that there's much to the game. You'd be wrong.

It's a remarkable experience, dream-like and contemplative and quite unlike any other game out there.
