Awesome / ICO

  • The boss fight against the Queen qualifies. It's not (just) awesome because she appears to be effective immortal, or because it's basically a Roaring Rampage of Revenge, or because it's the only actual fight in the game. No, what makes the battle awesome is that, just before it begins, Ico breaks a horn. You can see the damn thing bleeding at the fracture. Given his age, Ico is in horrible violent pain and defiance of certain elements of biology. And he still fights. With a sword that is almost as long as he is.
