Ueda Is God

I recently completed Ico, Fumita Ueda's adventure game for the PS2.

Many people see this title and its spiritual successor Shadow of the Colossus as examples of art, rather than video games. I would argue that all video games contain elements of art within them, regardless of genre, design and acclaim. 

I think what makes these games so great is that Ueda is able to achieve a high level of heart, emotion, and soul with very simple gameplay mechanics.

Both of these games come with my highest recommendation.
