Seconded. I tried the demo the day it came out. I didnt even bother finishing it. I normally like some over the top combat (Just Cause 2, SR3) but KOAR bored me. Games in the first 15min should not be boring.

Except almost all games *are* boring in the first 15 minutes. It's called pacing and tutorials. A game as simple as Amalur in no way needs a tutorial, though.

I disagree. While most may get better as you get out of the introduction area, I wouldnt say most are boring in the first 15min of the game, tutorial or not.

If you can't make the introduction to a game interesting, then the designer has failed at his job. When you put that introduction in your demo, then it better be good enough to make me want to keep playing. As far as I'm concerned, based on what I played, this is a $10 game, and even people that have played beyond the demo are saying the same thing. So clearly playing beyond where I played not much changes.
