FHM’s 100 Greatest Games of All Time

Posted by , 15 June 2009

Shadow of the Colossus

Year: 2006
Platform: PS2

Why it’s a classic: At last – a Japanese adventure game for everyone that doesn’t have a Hello Kitty pendant hanging off their mobile phone. No androgynous heroes with spiky hair. No swords the size of snow ploughs. Just an immersive story, rousing music and – crucially – bosses bigger than dinosaurs. The really big ones.

Best bit: Finding the first towering Colossus beast, scaling its furry back, then stabbing it hard in the head. Repeatedly. Until it dies.
