Bug Description

My son is 5 years old and has a computer with Ubuntu.
He should be able to browse the installed games on the computer but that's currently impossible. This would be possible with Gnome 2. The Unity dance with Dash -> the small All Applications icon -> Filter Results -> Games text-only label -> Expand additional results is just way to complicated.
So I suggest bringing back category icons that show all installed software in those categories, and making them very discoverable. For example putting them on the initial dash screen.
