ICO Creator Keen To Make FPS

Team ICO head Fumito Ueda is best known for moody, emotional titles like ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. That doesn't mean Ueda isn't itchy to bust a cap in your arse.

The game designer told G4 that he is interested in making first-person shooters. Just listen to him say it: "I have an interest in making first-person game." Ueda cites Valve's Half-Life series as FPS games he enjoy, remarking that, "Usually, you have to incorporate storytelling with constraints, but the way...[Valve]implemented constraints was something different that I enjoyed, compared to other games."

But what kind of FPS would Ueda make?

"[If]...you're in the middle of play, in the middle of the game, then all of a sudden you're in a cut-scene [and]you're not supposed to operate at all - that's not the kind of game I want to do. If there is some other techniques that will not give them that kind of feeling, that's something I want to implement."

Hey man, do it, do it, do it.

Currently Ueda and his time are hard at work on the upcoming PS3 exclusive The Last Guardian.

    I still hold Shadow of the Colossus as one of the greatest games of all time.

    If ever there was a reason to buy an early expensive PS3, that was it.. so i could still play this master piece!

    Man... the mind boggles at what they could create...

    nice work on the MS paint lol

    I can play SOTC and I have a 40Gb PS3. I just happen to have a PS2 as well... Backwards compatibility is overrated.

    A First Person ICO game would be insane. Is it possible to be moved to tears in an FP game? Can you really fall in love with an NPC? Can I preorder this now?

      Why i like playing it on my PS3 is for the 1080P up-scaling, and this game supports progressive output... so it looks really nice on my 50" screen. =)

      MMmmmm!

      So yes... I do like my BC hehe! =P
