    2017 was a great year for video games, especially when it comes to original art styles. Cuphead, Bendy and the Ink Machine, and Night in the Woods are just a few of the gorgeous games released last year, but this is not the first time innovative animation has played a major role in gaming. In fact there's actually a game from 2006 that goes as far as implementing its art style into its gameplay mechanics! In this episode, GG will reveal the history behind the under-appreciated game, OKAMI!

    Okami is one of the best-looking games ever made. Even the ps2 version still blows me away.

    Excellent analysis, GG. The art style in Okami is truly brilliant and unique among games -- I wish more games would commit to a unique aesthetic like it does.However, one important piece of the puzzle: I believe the soundtrack is underplayed in this video as an element of the immersion."Descent of The Great Goddess," the song that plays whenever a Guardian Sapling is revived, is just one of the most empowering, thrilling pieces of music I have ever heard for how short it is. For an orches...

    Coming from a western perspective, the music from the Medal of Honor games (excluding War Fighter) does an exceptional job of immersing the player into the emotion of that particular aspect or battle of WW2. Take for example the level Knights of Arnhem in Frontline and the song played during it. It makes the player feel how valiantly yet tragically the British 1st Airborne fought to hold out after being cut off by the Germans.

    Okami will always be a huge part of my life. From the music and art to the wonderful story it has made such a wonderful impact on my life.

    Visual style holds more strength than graphical prowess. Something can have the most high-end graphics card burning detail, but if it's boring, it doesn't matter.
