So let me get this straight, a bunch of people are now obsessed with a game wherein they venture into the real world in order to catch ‘virtual’ Pokemon. People are leaving their houses to catch virtual Pokemon. Kind of like a fruitless Easter egg hunt. This is straight up foolishness.
Besides the sheer amount of data that the creators will collect (where’s Snowden when we need him? /s), this game not only seems stupid but depressingly pointless. Throw in the fact that people have died and fallen off cliffs in the name of catching nothing at all, this has to be the dumbest shit that’s infected the planet in the last month.
It’s not like we needed to increase the amount of potential muggers, sketchy characters, trespassers and idiots too busy glaring at smartphones while walking in the streets. And we definitely don’t need it to dominate the news. ‘People play video game!!!’ isn’t exactly newsworthy.
Brain cells are wasting away and there’s nobody to catch ’em all. Pity.
