    Not that I've ever played Magic: The Gathering, but there wasn't a "I know what it is but am completely uninterested" option, so I picked 3.

    It's an interesting development in gaming. I've read about some rough areas, like people getting injured or worse by playing like an idiot. I've also read about some cool results, like the dog adoption facility that rented out dogs to walk while playing and ended up raising enough money to waive adoption fees for a while, then losing the income stream because they were able to adopt out all of their dogs.

    I've never seen anyone playing, but I probably can't disinguish between someone playing and someone who simply has their nose buried in their phone.

        Those idiots are idiots no matter what. And as for the kids. Growing up we played out side. I crashed my bike in to a side walk flew over it in to a thorn bush. Out side play is dangouris but i think it is good. So what if the soccer ball iz replaced with a phone. Kids are out side socializing.

          I know what Pokémon is / was since the original was very popular when my son was growing up.

          But, the current version is for people who are physically in their late teens and adults, but are still about eight years old intellectually.

          That is the assinity of the current version...

              Remember crashing my bike and ending up with a badly grazed knee. A householder came out and brought me inside where his wife washed the blood off, applied elastoplast and gave me a cup of tea and a bun. He was a German who kept goal for Manchester City. In those days even first Division soccer players were not millionaire megastars - if that happened today the kid involved would be able to sell the story to the press or have it trending on facebook or twitter. Things have certainly changed and you don't get as much exercise with a phone

                  ARGH! Pokemon Go!

                  The rise in 'suspicious activity' calls because carloads of college students are driving around to people's yards at 1am chasing pokemon. The one moron that tried to combine Pokemon Go with his dope buying.....I guess there were some good ones in that part of town.....yep....he got stabbed by a drug dealer.

                    But yes kids are meant to play outside or at least play socially. So I support Pokémon Go even if I wont play it.

                        Iran has just banned Pokémon Go "on grounds of security" and a Saudi cleric has issued a fatwa against it for containing unholy images - mind you Saudi clerics seem to work on the principle that if anything is proving enjoyable it must ipso facto be sinful. Not unlike some wee frees in that respect!

                          Yea, I guess they don't want anything to rival the good, time honored stoning and beheading contests.

                            It's pretty crazy how many adults are addicted to this pointless game. It's another example of people getting into things just because it's trendy. Eventually it'll be replaced by something else.

                            I guess the bright side is it's at least getting kids, who may otherwise be glued to their Xbox, out of the house.

                              I am 28 and amazed by the number of friends I have that are my age and older who play this absurdly stupid game. It's truly depressing. What's next? 30 year olds playing with Barbie dolls? Pokemon was something that was cool when I was back in middle school, I don't see why grown adults are playing this game

                              Should I regress and go back to playing with legos and toy soldiers? Am I doing something wrong with my life? I don't get it
