Keita Takahashi on Game Design

Since we're talking about Katamari Damacy, you might want to check out this synopsis of Keita Takahashi's speech at the Game Developer's Conference. (Keita Takahashi is the person who came up with Katamari Damacy.)

In his speech, he expressed skepticism about the necessity of games, concern that video games rob children of their childhood, and hope that if, indeed, the violent videogames have a negative impact on people, then perhaps pleasant, peaceful games like his own masterpiece can have a positive impact. In the end, he got a standing ovation.
