I'm absolutely horrified that Nintendo is spending so much time and resources developing this whole Amiibo functionality.

The idea of figurines interacting with the GamePad to alter gameplay is just too gimmicky for me to be excited about. While the concept is new and quirky, this just isn't something I see myself using at all. It's one of those features that sounds cool at first mention, then quickly turns into 'wtf were they thinking.'

This could be big with a game like Pokemon though.

Your opinions please?

1/10? I don't have any interest in it. I don't like the idea of the figures in general, but at least Skylanders and Infinity have better selling points to them.

It's basically Nintendo offering players the ability to cheat against other players who don't have access to amiibos if they either can't afford them or don't have interest in buying them. It will cause unbalance, especially in a game like Smash Bros.

If 1 is hate and 10 is love, I assume 5 is neutral and below is negative, so mine would be a 7.
I'm interested in the gameplay potential and I like the idea of having figurines of some of my favorite Nintendo characters/creatures. There are some characters that I'd be quite happy to have figurines of, and being able to bring added functionality with those characters in games would be a nice bonus.

0/10. Refuse to spend money on them and I don't like the implications.

Do you know how it even works? On the character select screen if you put the Amiibo on the Gamepad it just sets up a slot as a customized CPU of the character.

It doesn't give a player an advantage over another player. The standard format is free for all so the Amiibo wouldn't even be on your side even if you were using one(Unless your opponent is accepting a 2 vs 1 team match which is already unbalanced).

I think it will be a neat toy.
Perhaps had to my enjoyment.
I'll probably get some of my most favorite characters.

I just don't really get it, maybe I'm a bit too old (although that shouldn't really be an excuse) or maybe I can see that they actually offer quite little to people like me.
