@SkullMan, its not more ridiculus than a grown dude wanting to play a game in the one the main character is a monkey.

I told my wife the other day that I'm looking forward to all the awesome games coming out in the next few months, and she asked which games are coming out, in which I told her "Epic Mickey". Not more than 2 seconds passed and she goes "YOU'RE BUYING A MICKEY MOUSE GAME?", and then she burst into laughter. I really had nothing to say, except that it's supposed to be really good, but she just couldn't stop laughing and repeating that a grown man is buying a Mickey Mouse game.

I figure a grown man playing a Mickey Mouse video game is no more ridiculous than a grown man playing any video game.

She's right though kind of. I'm a grown man and a gamer, and I think it would be a bit ridiculous of me playing a Mickey Mouse game aimed at children, rather than a game tailored for adults like Call of Duty of Gran Turismo. At 25 I can't be playing pokemon and I don't want to, I played the first one and that was it. That being said anyone at any age can enjoy any game they want.

But a grown dude willingly wanting to play a Mickey Mouse game does sound a bit ridiculous. Unless he is buying it to play with his child and bond.

What if he or she is a Disney fan? Is it ridiculous for Disney fans to eagerly anticipate Epic Mickey? There are just as many casual Disney fans that are excited for this as are gamers. I hope you know that this isn't the typical Disney video game, this one is for real. And I really hope that you don't think it's anywhere near kiddy, because just look at the screenshots of Wasteland and the Phantom Blot.

Spector and Junction Point will tell you that Epic Mickey is meant to appeal to everyone, not just kids. After all, isn't that what Disney's all about? It appeals to kids with Mickey Mouse and older players with its dark atmosphere and depth.

Great Statment.

I'd say so. Please don't take shots at me and my love for donkey kong country, the new one is merely a fan service of nostalgia. I'm not into starting arguments and I have no idea how old you are. I'm saying that a grown dude wanting to play a Mickey Mouse can be viewed as very childish and immature. And while gaming in general can viewed ignorantly like that, a 25 year old dude wanting to play Mickey Mouse, Kirby, is going to get a hell of a harder time than a dude playing madden, call of duty, and red dead redemption.

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

@SkullMan Donkey Kong is "merely a fan service of nostalgia," but Epic Mickey is......

Mickey Mouse appeals to everyone. Classic Disney cartoons, like the original Looney Tunes cartoons, appeal to all ages, not just kids. I don't see how playing a game about Mickey Mouse that has a lot of dark themes is any more "childish" than a playing a very cartoony game about an ape, or even playing a game about a plumber who stomps on weird brown mushrooms and turtles and collects mushrooms to make him grow bigger and rides around on a green dinosaur and.....

The way you describe this and that being childish makes you sound childish. It honestly sounds like something coming from a teenager who's going through this 'trying to be a man' stage phase in his life. Usually most adults in their 20's are open arms to stuff like this and alot of them cherished everything Disney throughout their lives especially when they were young and they know how brilliant and amazing the classic Mickey Mouse stuff is. In no way do I find any of that stuff childish....It's for the more mature if you ask me, and it has a universal and broad appeal, it's simply put timeless and magical. If we were talking about 'Barney the Dinosaure' than fine, say childsh all you want, I won't argue with that. But we're talking about one of the most well known and beloved mascots of all time, Mickey mouse is the Mario of Disney.

You shouldn't be small minded about this stuff...Like somebody said, how is playing as a monkey any different than playing a a mouse? In the end who gives a damn, Monkey's and mouses are more bad than any Gun drenched Stubble sporting soldier. If the game is great I'm all for it, and most of Nintendo's and Capcom's maskots are fantastic....Don't you be hating on Mega Man too

But hey, if bullet hell shooters, beautiful shiny fast cars, and post appocalyptic war themed games make you feel like a man and mature, than by all means go for it. If those were the types of games that I'd only let myself play, I'd quite gaming all together.

Don't let that child-like spark in you die, because it's beginning to sound like it. And seriously, if Harry Knowles from 'Aint it Cool news.com' heard you speak about Mikey Mouse like this, he would slap you with his tummy rolls.

Miyamoto is a genious and that alone is a highly creative and trippy idea. I love how Nintendo does what they wan't creatively and give people what they don't expect.

Well, I'm officially getting this game for Christmas.

So, yes, I'll wait a bit longer then some of you to play this game, but the wait will be worth it. The game is all pre-ordered and when it gets here, its going to be wrapped up for Christmas. must-resist

What makes it easier is the fact that my Wii isn't working at the moment. When I get the game for Christmas, I'll have to play it on another family member;s Wii. sigh Still, very happy to be getting this. It looks really GREAT!
