**SPOILERS (kind of)** After my last play session with Shadow of the Colossus, I was convinced that the world that we are playing in is a metaphorical one. The initial tone set with death and loss then our character choosing to act instead of accepting someone else’s fate. So my question is, are we in a world of grief, sacrifice, or resurrection from damnation? Also, at what cost is our character’s objective achieved?
I’ve only ever tried playing Shadow of the Colossus, and never had a chance to sit down and beat it. So when it was remastered for the PlayStation 4, I was super excited. Even though all that I know is that I have to go around and climb giants to kill them. I can’t help but to wonder, without any context, why can’t we be friends? I guess we’ll find out.
