ending didnt explain why shadow people attack you in beginning of game.
didnt explain why shadow person stands over you after killing a colossus.
didnt explain why i die or tentacle things stab me after killing a colossus.
didnt explain what the noise was (girl moaning or something) after killing colossus.
and what is up with the deer? i dont get what was significant about that.
eh, if it did answer some of those, could some one answer them pls?
I always thought the girl moaning was Dormin. If you listen when he talks, there is a girls voice echoing his.,
And I saw the deer as a sign that it is possible to survive there. I mean all you see in that land besides Colossi are lizards and birds. Birds can fly out of the land, and lizards don't need much. But seeing another mammal alive gives you the sense of hope. That they'll be able to somehow survive. Because thats what I was thinking the whole time. "How the hell are they going to live there?"

I agree with a lot of what's been said above, even though I don't get the ICO stuff since I didn't play that game. The underlying message I think the developers were trying to communicate is that it's always better to live a difficult, or cursed life than to die. This is what the Wanderer believes when he tries to resurrect his love after she had been sacrificed for having a "cursed fate" (which I believe is exactly the fate she ends up with). It's also what happens to the Wanderer when he is turned into a cursed baby and has to try and atone for his sins while living an entire lifetime in an isolated cursed land. Then the makers really beat us over the head with it when they show the girl keeping Argo, even though he has a broken leg and will live in agony before inescapably dying from his injury. The reason these lives are worth living is illustrated by the final garden scenes of the game. These portray a message of hope and some small happiness in a life lived under any circumstances.,
