Wait -- the article's author wasn't accusing anyone of looking down on the Katamari-and-caviar people. He was accusing the Katamari-and-caviar people of frowning on Halo 2 and its swollen horde of players.

Personally, I can find both the appeal and the drawbacks of both of those games (and both of thoe gamer cultures).

What puzzles me -- and what the article's author seems not to touch on (okay, okay, I skimmed it) -- is that I think a significant number of Marathon fans would call Halo's storytelling a significant step backwards from that of Marathon.
