I remember seeing initial coverage for Skylanders Spyro's Adventure and thinking that it was a very unique idea for a game. If you have not seen the idea behind the game, the video below will give a decent idea:
Basically, now you can literally "play" with toys in a video game. I honestly can see this continuing to be a success with proper marketing, and perhaps expanding to other toys.
Seeing Skylanders Spyro's Adventure average hours "Per person" being more than 20 hours on its debut is extremely impressive, and shows the audience playing this "game" seems to really be enjoying it, as I believe the Amazon.com customer reviews testify as well.
I have never played a Spyro game, but I am definitely interested to see how this game continues to do. Mrs. Coffee watched the trailer as I was downloading it, and when she realized what it was she said, "Oh no, that game used to make me sick!" Now, I don't know which older Spyro game she played, but the flying/gliding/free camera movement aspect is what made her sick. Hopefully though, that would not be such an issue with this game, as she could choose which character(s) to play with.
