Landmark Art: Shadow of the Colossus

Shadow of the Colossus is well-known in the gaming industry for its revolutionary artistic style and ability to pull players to put forth a lot of emotional investment into the game.

Fumito Ueda was directly inspired by Giorgio de Chirio and his piece Melancholy and Mystery of a Street down to the color scheme, looming buildings (direct analogy to the looming figures in Shadow of the Colossus), and one or two long characters (interestingly enough, there is usually only one or two characters in either game at any time.)
