There are the people who love Skylanders, and there are the teen boys so concerned with image that playing a "kids game" is out of the question.
BTW... Im 32, married, college educated, with a six figure household income. I have no kids and I love the game across all the platforms. I'd love to have some 17 year old try to tell the adult with full tattoo sleeves (me) that I was playing a kids game. Ha!
Like synth said, you are playing a kids game. Just like you are watching a kids movie if you watch a Pixar flick. No matter how it trancends the generational gap, you're still engaging in something that was primarily designed for kids.
And like eAdvisory said, even though I agree with your point, you sound like a bit of a dolt commenting on your income. It's irrelevant and it makes you seem like you're trying to prove you are cooler than you are. Full tat sleeves? Oh yeah, you're cool. Uh huh. Sorry man, seems like you're over compensating and although I do agree that this is a game that is a hell of a lot of fun to play, you're doing nothing for that argument
THAT said, the point of my issue has nothing to do with the age of players. I collect comic book figures, less now unfortunately, and the Skylanders toys are very well designed. That said, they are targeted to kids. Just like Monster High dolls are targeted to kids. Doesn't mean there aren't adults who collect them and who have created websites dedicated to the collection. Same with Beanie Babies. Adults do collect them, but they, with Skylanders, were aimed for a kids market.
Just to note, however, the wording alone in the app description makes the target audience clear. It's designed for kids. It's rated 9+. I've decided I'm going to pick it up, because I do enjoy Skylanders and, hell, it's a buck, but the consumable IAP situation is still a thorn in my side for this game, which IS a kids game.
