Rumours of Gaming's Creative Demise= Very Much Exaggerated

The brilliant PS2 action-adventure game Shadow of the Colossus has debuted at the number 1 position (oh by the way, that's my regular non-school blog) on UK's weekly all-format games sales charts, taking out EA's NFS: Most Wanted in the process. Oh sweet irony! It's heartening to see that Sony pushed the game with a massive marketing campaign, especially given how little attention they gave to it's predecessor, the equally-brilliant ICO. This, I think, proves what I've always suspected- that gamers will play unconventional, artistic games of high quality if they're made aware of it. Oh and if you're reading this, scratching your head and wondering, "Shadow of the who?", then wander along to this meandering but frequently eloquent review of the game by the Hunter S. Thompson of gaming, Tim Rogers.
