I've never played the game but I've been enthralled with it ever since I saw Matthewmatosis's video explaining why it's so great. For me I think the reason I've really been interested in it for so long is the meta-narrative(I don't know if it technically counts as one?) behind playing the game. The small details, such as the ability to fly using a bird or climb up to eat devil fruit, as well as the different theories about the game really accentuate the game world. I've tried looking for narrate Shadow of the Colossus fan theories just because i'm so entertained by the concept of the game, but unfortunately there isn't much narrated ones. I can't wait to play it for the first time!
Can you link me that video?
So there are mechanics i didnt know about.
Is there hidden lore or is a lot vague and unexplained so you can put up theories?
I'm pretty sure the bird mechanic is just a novelty to be honest but I think that's part of why it's so cool - so much miniscule things are added to the world to make it feel alive.
If you can't stand analysis from a very sleepy narrator you might not like the video but anyway's here it is : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOXFEBC509w
Yes, there is. The main narrative kind of obscures itself through symbolism.
