My mom bought me this game unprompted one day. Said she got suggested this by the store clerk.

Whoever you are, you managed to make a kid very happy.

Katamari Damacy is such a unique game. Uniqueness is Keita's middle name but this game goes beyond it all: Unique controls, unique artstyle, unique story, unique music, everything about this screams creativity and, to this day, no game has been as positively quirky as this one.

A gameloop as simple as "roll over objects, become bigger" becomes this journey to find all the funny gags around the world as you make your next stellar object. Everything about the direction of this game just blends so well with its core, that I might as well call it a miracle that it works so well. A few little problems here and there (controls are great, but not the tightest) thankfully do not hamper the experience at all. If you want to check it out, there's also the steam version that works very well.

It's never too late to play Katamari Damacy.
