I hate taking photos. Unless, apparently, they’re in a video game. While I may shy away from snapping my everyday life and rarely ever take photos of food, I love to play pretend at photographer while exploring a gorgeous landscape or travelling through fantasy worlds.
Shadow of the Colossus is my most recent enabler. As well as cranking up the fidelity, smoothing out the controls, and adding in a little extra content, Bluepoint decided to introduce a photo mode into a game that seems made especially for handing out desktop wallpapers with almost every frame.
While the options may not be as deep as something like Horizon Zero Dawn, they don’t really need to be. Just look to your left or right and you will probably find something stunning. Tilt the camera, apply a filter, and you can have your GCSE art teacher eating their words.
The below are just some of my favourite screenshots from my time with Shadow of the Colossus. Considering they have been significantly pared down by Facebook (because I am too lazy to find a USB) and the compressed even further when uploaded to this site, they’re still some mighty fine images, if the auteur in me may say so.
“While it may lack the initial wow factor by way of being a remake, Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 does the original justice, and then some. It cements the legacy of Team Ico’s classic while bringing a few new things to the table, creating the perfect introduction to a masterpiece in design and understated storytelling in the process.”
