I told it to my friends but they saw only the official pictures, and when they saw the willosaurus city, and the willosaurs in the tribal age, they didn't get interested. I tried it on the internet, I opened Spore topics on the biggest Hungarian sites(I'm Hungarian). It was better, because i can give a link to the GDC   and if they saw it, they can understand the game.
 But I can't make my friends to sit down and watch  1 hour long presentation!

Yes, but still, the pics should be about a more serious gameplay. hardcore gamers doesn't like this cartoonist style.

I had been discussing the future of games development with a friend and I suggested that it would make more sense to generate environments automatically rather than having desginers create every item in a next gen game. he said it would never work. then 2 months later I found the Gamespy review of Spore and got all excited about it. I sent it to my friend and he finally understood my point and he got all excited then complained that I was getting him interested in a game a year and a half before it was due to be released. So now I've corrupted all my NWN friends and fascinated pretty much anyone who will listen with talk of Spore and it's implications. but I reckon I've convinced 10 other people to actually buy it as soon as it comes out.

My biology teacher was also very interested in Spore. I have had much success with getting people interested, even people that I doubted would like it.  :)

Its funny, i got so super overexited about this game, the very first time i saw the 30min video and had a total mental-meltdown combined with several brain-orgasms... since then i have try-ed to show this excellent game to many of my friends, some of them know about it already and some of them got very excited and joined the exited community.

i also sent a link to my mothers husband ho normally who'd jump on new-hitec game engines things like this, he is also ranked as one of the worlds greatest fly-sim modelers and also are in to astronomy ... so i tough that he who'd Love Spore! not only to play with an 3d editor, but also implement and try stuff in world, And visit space ... and so on.

but he seems to reject the hole thing also, apparently he thinks every thing looks silly(?), and he is also very sceptically to how things will work... if at all.

to be honest i dint think he get the game... i mean, he refused to explain what he did not liked... just that it was 'silly looking' .. but if he is complaining about how silly those 1-legged-jumping-frog or those other spider-claw creatures are constructed in the video, that is all about players free-will and nothing about the game nor its engine ...
the only thing other than that... i can Imagen is the shape of the planets, but this is not much one can do about it, sense the alternative who'd be ether VERY LARGE planets, or very plain and booring planates if done in the right scale. (meaning No mountens whatsoever unless of course thy get all magical faded in on zoom)

well, anyway... i don't have any doubt in my mind that this game is going to change the way we look at games and game development. my only dislike is that i found this game when their is several month left(if no delays popups) until release, and i now spend every awaken time in my life thinking on this lovely game is going to be! :P

If I may be so blunt, that's bs.  I will bet money I have more play time logged on my comp than 90% of this forum and I LOVE the cartoony style.  A true gamer knows graphics don't make a game.

I also got quite a few people interested, but only the ones I knew would be patient enough to watch the whole video.

Have you tried to get people interested in Spore? If so, how did that fare?

I made a post on a forum dedicated to the popular web-cartoon Homestar Runner, and I got some more people into it.
