If you liked ICO and Shadow of Colossus by Fumito Ueda, The Last Guardian will be right up your street that tells the story of an unforgettable relationship between a boy and a giant cat-bird-dog called Trico. Over the course of their adventure you will learn of their trust, communication and care for each other against a highly stacked story against them.
Much like the previous two spiritual predecessors, The Last Guardian touches on the same isolation, connection and loss that made those games a beautiful masterpiece of gaming. The entire story is told through the inner monologue of a nameless boy, subtle cues and experiences between boy and beast during their adventure together through a phenomenal landscape.
The adventure begins with you awakening from a dream, trapped inside a cave with Trico nearby, tied down by a metal collar, spears in his back and armour on him. Without much need for explanation you know it all needs to be removed to leave the cave. After being knocked out from the first spear removal, the journey of your escape together starts.
