In their newest video, the Idea Channel attempts to explain why everyone loves Amiibo. The first eight minutes of the thirteen minute video are spent going over the many different factors behind the Amiibo mania (the last four minutes is merely comment discussion on last week’s video). Such concepts are tackled like the psychology of why we collect things, the reason Amiibo are so appealing, and how the Amiibo have turned us from average consumers into hardcore collectors. It’s a very interesting watch whether you are an Amiibo hunter or simply curious as to what all the fuss is about, so I definitely recommend taking a look.
Leave us your thoughts as to why you think the Amiibo have stirred up such a frenzy in the gaming community. It is all blatantly Nintendo’s fault? Do you think the Amiibo are even worth collecting? We want to hear from you, so leave your comments below!
