Now, we know what you are going to say. A blog post dedicated to a kid’s computer game? And the answer would be yes, it is. But to us, the Skylanders game series is one that is definitely not just for kids. So, with this in mind, we have put together the reasons why we love nothing more than grabbing our portals and playing Skylanders of a Friday night.
This series of games incorporates the normal approach to gaming with toys that you place on a portal. These toys then activate a character within the game that you can then play as. With bright, bold graphics it is a worldwide popular game.
It is great fun
Gaming can be a serious task, particularly when you are playing one of the older grown-up games. Sometimes you can think back to those fun days when you were child and you would play games simply because you loved them. Skylanders takes you back to those days when you would turn on a game and spend a few hours just playing away with a smile on your face.
There are several games you can choose from
Seeing as Skylanders proved so popular from the original game, it wasn’t long before more and more were introduced. There are now 6 games that you can play, and with each game that you work through in the series, you can use the figures from the previous games. Ideal if you have a favourite that you love to play as.

The Skylanders figures are awesome
Even if you are grown-up, there is a good chance that you are going to be impressed by the Skylanders figures. Not only are they really well made, but they are fun too. Bright colours, funny positioning, all things that mean that not only can you pop them on your portal, but you can have them on display too.

It is something all the family can play together
Being able to spend some quality time together is something that all families want. But sometimes it can be hard to think of things to do. Particularly during the wet weather. Having Skylanders in your home, no matter the platform you have it on, means that you have something that you can do together. All you need is a controller each and your favourite character and you will be ready to go.
As you can see, there are a number of reasons why we love Skylanders. Why not try it out for yourself and see if you fall in love with this fun game as much as we have!
