I need to have a kid so I can have a legitimate excuse to play these kinds of games.

Like oh, the son wanted it, or it's a great bonding experience for us. Not oh yeah, I willing want to be playing a Mickey Mouse game.

Reliving childhood experiences is not an excuse?

Ha, it only works so often and so much. I've been a gamer all my life, and sometimes I like those fun and light hearted games to take a break from heavy and mature stuff like Call of Duty and the likes.

Send me the best you've got. Send me your strongest machines. The fight my brother fought, here, now, will end with me.

You know, I found that of "Mickey Mouse is for kids" stupid. Mickey Mouse is for everyone, from babys to grandfathers, including teenages, adults and hard core gamers. Mickey mouse is not kind of Barnie, it is more kind of donkeykong, sonic and bug bunny.

There is no differece, a mouse, a bunny, a hedgedog and a monkey, all of them are animals, and all of them are great, it doesn't mater how old you are.

Man's worst enemy is laziness.

Not sure why I feel a little funny to be playing a Mickey Mouse game at 25. I should be married and having kids now in my life.

You feel alittle funny about playing a mickey mouse game at 25?.....lol Why? That's pretty immature and being close minded if you ask me. And is Kirby's Epic Yarn too pink, colorful and whimsical for you? C'mon man. What you just said is what alot of young teenagers say when they're going through their typical stupid little phazes, well many of them at least. Yet when they hit college, total nostalgia sets in and they love everything that they used to have when they were a kid, weather it be TMNT toys, disney movies, ghostbusters you name it.

I Love disney(before they turned to crap), and mickey mouse makes me feel like a kid again. I could go on and on. And by the way I'm 26 and I'll never grow up hehe. Cartoons, videogames, disney, what have you are all amazing. I find it a tad' immature that you feel like you're too grown up to play a mickey mouse game....C'mon, be a little more open minded, just because there is no blood, guns and guts doesn't make it any less mature.

Mickey Mouse is the Mario of Disney ;)

i'm 24 and i play mario games, how is that any better? games are nerdy no matter what. modern warfare is no less nerdy than shantae's revenge. in fact, it's probably more nerdy. going thru prestige mode 10 times is actually more nerdy. way more nerdy.

What do you mean by nerdy? The games/franchises you just mentioned are amazing and highly creative. Playing videogames is in no way nerdy to me....Collecting stamps IS nerdy. Videogames are like movies, they're a form of entertainment 'instead' with videogames you're obviously in control and like many movies, these are things that you could never experience in real life ect ect. The closest you'd ever get would be in your dreams.

BUt ya you wanna know what's nerdy? Baseball and Football.lol I can't enjoy that crap even when I'm stoned. Yep, I'm anti-Sports....Yet I love cardio hehe. But i just don't get off on a bunch of retards whacking their sticks around and trying to hit alittle hockey puck into a net, it's extremely boring. But i gotta admit, i used to like the end of the play offs in hockey since it got pretty intense....But the crap depresses me now. As far as entertainment goes, I want something surreal, imaginitive and trippy ect ect.

I was just responding to the idea that playing a Mickey game at 25 yrs old is funny. The point is, if that's true, then playing virtually any video game at 25 is funny.

lol well one thing is for sure, a guy watching Twilight is what I consider funny.
Someone playing a Disney based video game to me is considered awesome muhaha. I mean seriously, remember Ducktales on the Nes? That game is a total classic, and so is Chip n' Dale.

And you know, Epic Mickey kind of looks and feels like a spirit successor to Castle and World of Illusion. I LOVED Castle of Illusion back on the Genesis. :D And while we're on the subject everything disney and Mickey, I'd love to get those Black and White retro Mickey cartoons on DVD. They reak of magic, classic animation, loveeeee it :p.

@Skullman: Playing Mickey Mouse games shouldn't be a shame at all. I can proudly play Kirby games and what makes Mario less cartoony than Mickey? It's perfectly fine to be light-hearted you know.

For those interested in Disney's Epic Mickey there are a couple of deals going on.

The online shop for Toysrus.com is selling both the Epic Mickey Collector's Edition and
regular edition and includes a $5 discount. Amazon.com is also selling the Collector's Edition
of the game at the same price as Toys r Us.

I realize some people will find it stupid that I feel that way. And that games are for all ages and aren't just for kids...but the older I get the more ridiculous I feel playing them all the time. The past few months my interest in gaming has been waning...I played every night, when COD was big I would play 4,5, some times hours a night...now it's a few nights a week at the most, a few hours here or there.

Not sure if I'm afraid of waking up one day and wondering why I wasted so much time on trivial games, or if I'm growing up and growing out of them. Not sure the idea still interests me, but I can only see the developers pushing the "Mickey is for everyone not just kids" to help sell more units. I want it to be good but I'm not sure.

And Waveboy, yes...Kirby's Epic Yarn does feel a bit removed from me. I want my games to really reflect where I am in life, and even though I grew up playing some Kirby game...I can't say at 25 that Nintendo is aiming this at me, and they shouldn't be...it's a child's game.

Send me the best you've got. Send me your strongest machines. The fight my brother fought, here, now, will end with me.

A child's game or not, Kirby's Epic yarn is graphically incredibly unique, how could you 'not' want to try it out? It's a breath of fresh air as far as art direction goes, and it looks insanely fun. I'm a kid at heart and will always be muhaha.
Anyways as for your interest in gaming, which has been waning I can slightly say the same for me, but it depends. I don't spend 4-5 hours on a game though. Usually up to 2-3 depending, it's all about balance. I don't know how people can sit around and playing videogames ALL day, THAT feels like a complete waste, too much of anything is a bad thing.

Anyways, I'm in a sticky position though. I'm passionate about the videogame and film industry but I'm ill at the moment and in and out of the doctors, so I've got a major road block going on due to some crazy mercury poisining which has been eating up alot of my time. I've been sick for 4 years now which nailed me out of college, so I'm pretty frusturated right now since everything before was going great. When you don't have your health and when it effects you physically and maybe even mentaly nothing else really matters but getting your health back. But i try to shake out of it and still take interest in what I love, it's just totaly frusturating.lol Especially when you take so much pride in your looks like I do. I know I know, that sounded like a total buzz kill haha.

Anyways to each their own. Personally I prefer videogames that are imaginitive, colorful, surreal and dream-like. I'm not a fan of SCFI or War themed games, or SandBox, Sims andShooters. I LOVE horror on the other hand ;)

I truly believe at being a kid at heart, But I guess I see the difference of being young and childlike at heart and being fully childlike. I think I can retain that view on life without doing childish things.

Mercury poisoning?! How does one get that? Too much Kirby? ;)

Outside of the occasional actually well written game story, I don't care about gaming being relevent to me or my age. The less relevent the better. It's been said way too much but gaming really is about escaping real life instead of having it remind me of real life.

Besides if you want something that reflects "where you are in life" I'd suggest books, movies or even anime before video games.

And really I'm glad to see that even after it being the first video game I ever beat (Kirby's Adventure) that Kirby is still around and being cute yet awesome 15 years later.

when I was 21, and as a source of protein I was eating wayyyyy to much Tuna, I'm talking around 10 cans a week. My Naturo Path said my mercury levels were off the charts. And when that happens it can disrupt your entire body, like your glands, auto immune system ect ect. It can even cause nerve and brain damage over a long period of time, even cancer depending. So yep, It sucks!

I used to be pretty fit, but now I've lost probably around 25-30 pounds of muscle, have skin problems, insomnia, heart paluputations, crazy head pressure, the works! :p But i'm actually on treatment now, but it's a very slow process. I just want my health back so I can get back into the game, it's been a while since I've had some action :p And then there's college and blah blah, I gotta do what i love and what I'm passionate about, and being an artist that I have is a huge part of it.

My advice, don't eat too much fish.lol

^^ This times infinity. Life is often pretty sucktacular. I like playing pretty, colorful things so I can forget about just how sucktacular it is.

Life can be pretty sucktacular, but life is what you make it. You create your own life style, the way you look, What you eat, What you do, the people you hang out with, what you love, your intersts ect ect.. It can be fantastic, but it can also be the complete opposite...And most of that has to do with having to pull yourself out of bed to go to school or work, having to live with the fact that morons, bums, murderers and gangsters walk the earth.lol If only we lived in a fantasy world, oh well Disney Land is close enough. :p

For the time being only movies, videogames. Dreams and Acid(lol hehe jk) will take you to that place where you can escape. Just imagine what will come next in the videogame industry.....True Virtual Reality, to smell and feel? Oh it will happen and you can bet your sweet buns Nintendo will be the first to blow everybody away. Aside from 3D for the Wii2 which will no doubt be amazing, I wonder what else in store Nintendo has for us aside from Advanced motion controls, 1080p HD Graphics, Dolby Digital/DTS Master sound and next gen graphics....hmmm :D
