Calling something the greatest whatever of all time is always a bit hyperbolic. While GOAT is thrown around alot these days, it seems to quickly be losing all meaning. Before this happens, we just had to posit that there exists a videogame so good, so fun and uniquely inventive, that it actually deserves to be called the greatest video game of all time. We’re talking about… Drum-roll, please… “Shadow of the Colossus.” We’re here to show you some sick “Shadow of the Colossus” tattoos and dive into details as to why this particular title truly is GOAT.
The brilliance of the game lies in its unconventional structure and amazing narrative. The game consists of nothing but boss fights, broken up by traveling the beautiful forbidden realm on horseback. These colossi are so massive that they are practically levels in and of themselves. Their design is incredibly gorgeous and intricate. It’s really a shame you have to kill all of these beautiful creatures, but doing so is just too much fun.
There’s nothing like a solid “Shadow of the Colossus” tattoo to make you want to play through the game again for the twentieth time. It really should only take a handful of hours if you’re familiar with it, so why not get cracking? I’m about to.
