What’s your favourite PlayS­ta­tion game of all time, on any sys­tem?

It’s a toss up be­tween Kata­mari Da­macy and PaRappa The Rap­per. I loved how off-the-wall and silly th­ese two games seemed at the time. I’m a real sucker for nov­elty!

What PlayS­ta­tion series most af­fected you?

The hon­est an­swer has to be Lit­tleBigPlanet. I spent a large pro­por­tion of my life mak­ing it, then even more time en­joy­ing see­ing the com­mu­nity do won­der­ful things with it!

What game or series most in­flu­ences you?

Sorry to be bor­ing, but I’m go­ing to say Lit­tleBigPlanet again! See­ing how that was em­braced by the com­mu­nity is the big­gest driver for me at the mo­ment in mak­ing Dreams, and want­ing to give more power to the com­mu­nity to see what they will do with it.

Which PlayS­ta­tion game or series or de­vel­oper changed the in­dus­try?

For some rea­son, WipE­out sticks out in my head; for me it marks a time when games started be­ing viewed as ‘cul­tur­ally cool’.
