Mysterious mysteries, kids with bull horns (and not the type you shout into), spoopy shadow monsters, and glowing elf girls...ICO looks like a really cool game and an excellent choice for a Group Playthrough!

Anyone interested in running through ICO and discussing the game with us is welcome to join. The game will be split into sections which will be posted on this board. Participants need only complete each section and talk about their thoughts and experiences with ICO.

If are new to these playthroughs and enjoyed running through ICO with us, check out our board at:

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/1145-retro-revival

Everyone is welcome to post at Retro Revival and even run their own Group Play throughs.

Please reply to this post if you have any questions or wish to participate. See you September 5th!

Hey @funkadelius, Welcome to the board! An ICO group playthrough would be awesome as a retro game. As one of the old-timers here, I'd love to participate but am not available on the proposed Sept 5 date. I'm also happy to get my ps3 streaming setup up and running to do some playthroughs.

Likely to play through this with you guys, but in PS3. Will try to keep up.

Long time I haven't played this, barely remember something about it... lol

@rafamaximo welcome aboard!

So it looks like we have a pretty good size group for this game. I played through the first 40 mins of the game to get a feel for it and looked at some FAQs. The group playthrough will likely get split into the six chapters, each about an hour long:

Tombs
Fear of Falling
Symmetry
Water and Wood
The Sea
The Queen

We'll cover 1-2 chapters each week depending on how quickly we move through each portion of the game as a group. However, the first two chapters will be posted a week apart in order to give everyone time to join up.

I'm also going to take an idea from Risktaker's Illusion of Gaia GP and ask a question or two with each chapter, but they'll be totally optional.

Thanks! Let’s see how this goes. Hope I don’t get carried away and get too far in game

I just randomly found out about Retro Revival and wanted to say the idea is fantastic.

As for ICO, I remember trying it long ago and having far less fun than with Shadow of the Colossus, but since it's so short I might join and see how it goes.
I'm particularly interested in PS2 games right now but actual participation depends on many factors.

Anyway, I'll definitely keep an eye on the group!

Re. splitting up the chapters (which aren't clearly separate sections in the game), "The Sea" and "The Queen" definitely need to be done together. There isn't a break point between them.

Also you may want to post an ad on the ICO/SotC PS3 collection board, in case anyone is watching that board and not the individual games.
