Two games concluded the run of Capcom's golden age of IP development with their semi-independent Clover Studio: God Hand and Okami. There are few games with the pedigree of Okami; directed by Hideki Kamiya (the creator of Viewtiful Joe, Devil May Cry, and future creator of Bayonetta) and produced by Atsushi Inaba (one of the most successful game producers of all time). Released in 2006 for the PlayStation 2, Okami holds the world record as being one of the least commercially successful game to garner multiple game of the year awards. Does it stand as one of the best games period a decade later?
