Art and Gaming In Okami

While Okami captures the visual beauty of painting and takes up the paintbrush as a tool in the game, Inaba bristles at the idea that his work could itself be considered art. "Personally, I do not like it when games are called 'art,'"says Inaba.

"Art is created by artists and artisans for people who appreciate art. Games are made to be enjoyed by gamers."

Interesting distiction. Can't gamers appreciate both?
