A Truly Timeless Art Style: Our Favorite Cel-Shaded Games

SuperPhillip Central writes, "Many games from the past generation (think PS2 era) have already become dated mostly due to their graphics and art style. However, we at SuperPhillip Central believe that one art style helps in making a game stand the test of time. That's, of course, cel-shading. While there are dozens upon dozens of games that use the artistic tactic, we have come up with a list of fourteen of our favorites. From Zelda to Dragon Quest, this list comprises the very best of the art form." (GameCube, MadWorld, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Okami HD, PC, Prince Of Persia, PS2, PS3, Punch-Out!!, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Valkyria Chronicles, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Ahh finally someone put XIII on the list man I don't know why people hate this game so much, it's a real shame

You mean VIII right? As in Dragon Quest?

I don't recall the game receiving much hate, but I could be wrong.

Im glad they didnt include borderlands, little known is that its not actually cell shaded. Its got a cartoony looking texture work, but the lighting is just standard smooth lighting.
