I drink a lot of coffee, and often drink it while playing games. I enjoy FPS games and platforming games a great deal. GoldenEye 007 from the N64 is probably my favorite game ever. I enjoyed the first Red Steel on the Wii, a good bit.
I am married, a father of two (three, counting the dog), and extremely fortunate to have a wife that not only doesn't mind me gaming, but enjoys gaming herself as well.
I started a blog just over 3 years ago, CoffeeWithGames, covering a lot of Nintendo Wii titles, and how much those games are played. I broke the news about Nintendo stopping the shipping/printing of Metroid Prime Trilogy on the Wii, as well as a few other Wii titles.
We own a Wii and PS3 as "current" generation consoles go. I just started gaming (a little) again on my PC in the last year, and am enjoying it as well.
I have a Wii U Deluxe Set pre-ordered, and I am hoping Nintendo addresses a few remaining questions I have about the system, in the very near future.
Coffee Beans Alice in Wonderland was released for the Nintendo Wii on March 2, 2010. The game was developed by Étranges Libellules (now closed) and published by Disney Interactive Studios, and it received an ESRB rating of "EVERYONE 10+" with "Fantasy Violence" listed as content for parents and gamers to be aware of. The game's development was "inspired by Tim Burton's" movie, Alice in Wonderland, which released in theaters on March 5, 2010.
How many hours have U.S. Wii owners reported playing Alice in Wonderland, since it released just over 3 years ago? Brew yourself some coffee, and let's take a look!
The Brew Alice in Wonderland has approximately 28,301 U.S. Wii owners that have reported gameplay hours through the Nintendo Channel. U.S. Wii owners have reported playing close to 300,000 hours, as the image above shows, with 1,105 days possibly reported.
The game's average reported play-time is 10 hours 13 minutes "Per person", as the image above shows, which averages to be about 1 hours 19 minutes played per time/day reported. The movie has a runtime of 1 hour 49 minutes.
Caffeinated Thoughts While I have not played the game, Alice in Wonderland, I did see the movie when it was in theaters. I enjoyed the movie, but haven't purchased it on DVD or Blu-ray yet (it will probably be Blu-ray, once we decide on a player!).
If you haven't seen anything from the game, the video below contains a few clips from the game and was a promotional trailer released for it:
Seeing the game with an average time of more than 10 hours "Per person", really surprised me for a movie based game! Alice in Wonderland has a higher average play-time reported "Per person", than some Wii exclusive games like Red Steel 2 and Deadly Creatures.
If you didn't see the movie, here are two statistics I learned about it, while researching information for this post. According to Box Office Mojo:
1) Alice in Wonderland is currently ranked 13th overall, for worldwide grosses with movies.
2) It is currently ranked as having the 2nd best opening weekend, for March movie releases, only behind The Hunger Games (the newly released Oz The Great and Powerful is close behind though!).

Questions Have any of you played Alice in Wonderland (any version), and if so, what did you think about it? Even if you haven't played the game (like me), did you perhaps watch Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and enjoy it?
