"The worst thing that can be said about Ōkami is that many gamers thought it marked a new era of games, a watershed moment, after which games would be filled with incredible beauty, wonderful adventures that stirred the soul and controls that would pull you into sublime fantasy realms but it wasn’t. It was an anomaly. No game has surpassed its beauty. This was a game that could make you weep with joy at its exquisite aesthetic. How do we know it’s never been surpassed as a gaming experience? Just look at it in high definition. The only thing that blurred Ōkami in our minds was it’s blurriness. As a game bound by the technical limitation of the last generation it had begun to fade away in our minds. Now there’s no question. It’s perfect."
