    Default Pokemon Go

There are always going to be people who love it and people who hate it. Neither one has the right to judge the other for their views. And at the end of the day, it's a game.
    No, I understand. I think my concern is, once one people instigate a common thread of hatred (not as in BH thread) it incites the people willing to act on hated justification to do so.

    I don't think there is a certain demographic. I have played it a couple of times while going on drives with my family, DH driving me navigating the phone and my children in the back seats.

    It's definitely not just for people without jobs and just the young. I work 2 days a week mainly we play it after school pick up or at weekends.

    I have enjoyed it and find it quite addictive. I'd compare it to geocatching but eaiser and more popular on a wider audience.

    It's not for me but I can see it'd be fun if you had school age kids, to play it with them. I just don't have time to get out and catch Pokemon as an adult though.

    Im wondering if it's going to result in injuries soon though, I saw two grown men crossing a road on the weekend who nearly got hit by two cars, as they had their phones out and weren't watching where they were going.

    A whole group of people playing alongside each other...isn't that called "parallel play", like 3-year-olds do?
    It's a game for geeks. Don't care if they are head of the UN. Still geeks!

    Actually, I don't really care.

    Yeah because adults don't have fun hobbies...

    I'm pretty sure a kid was hit by a car last week somewhere

    I just read this, and as a non-player, I have to say that if this happened in my neighbourhood and at my local park where I take my kids, it would cause me a lot of anxiety.
    I'm curious how Pokemon go players on here would feel about it?

    I think it's just stupid and it blows my mind. I mean honestly playing a game does not give anyone a free pass to no longer act responsibly and with respect.

    I also think it's a bit strange. I've been playing since it was released and never felt the need to run out across the road. Or to run anywhere for that matter 😊

    I think you will find sooner than later the councils will have to ban it in public places as someone is bound to get hurt if it's causing this much distraction , accidents are bound to happen and no game is worth that
