Look, dude, I'm gonna be the last person you'll ever see criticize Okami, but... you really can't compare its physics to Breath of the Wild. Like, just, don't.
I did, because they're similar. One just has the advantage of being ten years newer. I wasn't comparing them as a way to say Okami is on BotW's level, only that similar physics have been explored in the past (and hell, it happened in a very Zelda-esque game, too).
