I didn't even remember you played candy crush! It has been what, almost 2 years since it probably came up in conversation? A lot has happened in two years for that little detail to stay at the forefront of my mind.
I was actually referring to a meme I've seen on Facebook which made that comparison, it could apply to anything including the games I play on my phone.
I wasn't making anything personal.
Obviously there's a difference between playing/using something constantly to the point it affects your life and just playing a game when you've got spare time.
I'm hardly one to judge since I certainly don't use my phone to only make phone calls.

I was smiling reading this read.....
In my opinion this game has its pros and cons
However getting locked in a cemetery and having a car accident is not good. (Actual events happened) people walk in the water etc. and they're just the things I happened to see on the news and I don't watch the news.
I have mixed feelings on Pokemon Go, but I do think the positives outweigh the negatives.
It's making a tonne of people happy. Families are bonding and being active. I've heard a lot of positive feedback from parents of children on the Autism spectrum. I was also really chuffed to hear the creator of the app is a fellow with ASD - high fives to this guy!
The negatives are obvious - it can lead to potentially dangerous situations. I cringe at the thought of someone playing this game whilst they are driving - though I expect that someone who does this would be the type to text and drive anyway, so it's not exactly a Pokemon Go issue but a careless driver issue. People walking around not looking where they are going is a recipe for potential disaster too.
I haven't played Pokemon Go and don't plan to, however I'd maybe consider it if my DS was a bit older and more safety conscious.
My brother and I both grew up with Pokemon.
We have the nostalgic factor, but also once my brother (a video game wiz) declares he is doing something, my competitive instinct kicks in and I have to be better than him.

You know what I do? Scroll past it. Don't bother reading articles about it. You don't actually have to let something be in your face if you don't want to. I can't for the life of me fathom why anyone would get so upset about someone else's hobby.
DH and I usually sit on the lounge in our PJ's almost every Sunday. Last Sunday we decided to go on a Pokemon hunt instead. Walked 10kms and discovered 5 beautiful parks nearby we'd never even noticed before. We had such a fun day. We came across so many people doing the same thing, and they all give you a little smile, because we're sharing the same type of fun.
We both go for a walk at lunchtime at our respective work areas and show each other what we collected when we get home. Fun and something to talk about. I'm hopeless at exercising, hate gyms etc. my OB wanted me to get 30 mins of walking in a day. I was failing miserably, until now..
The dog has also lost the 5kgs he needed to lose.
