Disney Epic Mickey has been at the top of my most wanted list for a good long while now, so the fact that it’s finally hitting shelves today and gamers everywhere are finally going to be able to experience it is supremely exciting. However, I have a terrible feeling that despite Warren Spector's brilliance and the backing of Disney and Nintendo the game isn’t going to sell nearly as well as it deserves to, and that’s upsetting. I hope I'm wrong, but that's just how I feel.
This has been the case for a number of great games this year (the first that comes to mind is Enslaved: Odyssey to the West), and it’s something you just don’t want to see, especially if you’re someone who loves having new and exciting IPs to experience, as opposed to having to chose between nothing but sequels.
So what I want to know this morning is: how many of you honestly plan to pick up Disney Epic Mickey (or ask for it as a gift this holiday)? If you own a Wii, there’s really no excuse for not buying the game, but if you aren’t planning to buy it, what’s your excuse, and what games are you buying instead?
