Nah, have not played Ico, heard of it though. Pm away!
True enough, originality doesn't tend to do very well sales wise. :/
Nah, I haven't played any of the Yakuza series. Would give it a try but don't have a PS3
The previous games being turned into mini movies for the 3rd reminds me of Shenmue, was originally on the dreamcast, but they brought the second out on the xbox, but it had a movie version of the first game. (I never understand why they bring out the second game in a successful series on a different system - for example, Mass Effect 1 + 2 are on 360, but since ME2 did so well, it's being brought to the ps3. Why not bring both 1 + 2 to the ps3. It kinda defies the point of playing "The trilogy")
But I digest. Shenmue was an awsome game that brought so much cool gameplay, rpg-ish elements and it was, imo, a better simulation of life than say, Heavy Rain. The things you could do were immense sometimes. And you would follow leads but sometimes if you missed a chance to meet someone or lost in a battle, instead of restarting at a checkpoint, you had to find another way to deal with it, (sometimes). But that was a Japanese video game at its peak. It's just a shame they never got to finish the story.
