  • Katamari Damacy – A Critique: Part Three

    - Ryan Stancl
  •  Recap

    Many people claim to be video game critics. Hardly any are. They are video game reviewers.

    Over the last few weeks I have been introducing you to eight schools of criticism – Biographical, New Critical, Marxist, Structural, Jungian, Psychoanalytical, Feminist, and Post-Colonial – giving a little history behind each, and showing how they can be used to critique the video game Katamari Damacy for the PlayStation 2.

    Part One focused on Biographical and New Critical critiques, while Part Two focused on Marxist, Structural, and Jungian critiques. Here I’ll be bringing the whole thing home by talking about the Feminist, Psychoanalytical, and Post-Colonial schools of criticism.
