Came across this analysis of Shadow of the Colossus and thought it was worth sharing. Warning if you haven't played the game it talks about the ending.

The author uses the biblical reference of Nimrod and the tower of babel as a springboard to examine other potential clues to a religious subtext in Shadow of the Colossus, similar to some film analyses that you may be familiar with. It doesn't really deal with Ico as much, or The Last Guardian, but may offer some insight.
