I've never played a Katamari Damacy game, although I was somewhat interested in it when it first came out in North America. I didn't have a PS2, though. I know it's on Switch now, but the moment has passed.
The interesting thing about the game, though, is that it was a surprise hit when it was originally released in North America, especially since it was the kind of quirky Japanese game that would normally stay in Japan. It led to a brief trend of lots of quirky Japanese games being localized (like Odama). Of course, few, if any, repeated the success of Katamari Damacy, so niche Japanese games went back to being niche Japanese games.
