A new virus takes over the world: Talking to POKEMONGO players

A new game is taking over social media and the gamer world. POKEMONGO. Our friends from DRECK Magazine are talking to POKEMONGO players to find out how dangerous the virus is: PokemonGo. You surely noticed your feed and entire life has been literally taken over by Pokemon for a couple of days now. It seems after the release of PokemonGo  the world will never be the same again.  People hunting around at night, traffic accidents, couch potatoes walking forever to hatch an egg. With some countries in Pokemon fever and others anticipating just as eagerly, we asked a few PokemonGo players to answers to 3 questions.

GEORGOS:

Pokemon Go is a pretty new type of game, how difficult is it to play?

Pokemon Go is not too hard to play but it is broadly explained and many features of the game you have to find out on your own when you are actually playing it out in the real world.

There s been some incidents/ accidents reported, have you experienced anything of that type while playing?

Well I was actually walking near a lake near my house here in Florida and I saw an alligator swimming near by. If I wasn’t paying attention that could definitely be a dangerous situation.  Also while driving I once saw a Pokemon I wanted so I tried to catch it while driving ( bulbasaur ) haha never doing that again.

Have you always been a pokemon fan and whats your favourite pokemon?

ive been a fan of Pokemon since I was a kid but stopped keeping up with the games  after the first 251 Pokemon. So being able to play a game that includes so far only the original ones is really cool and nostalgic for me and everyone born in the 90s also. It’s very strange to see so many people in the real world playing this game everywhere I go.  My favorite Pokemon is Suicune.

Pokemon go is not a difficult game to play, I would say anyone that can flick a finger can play it.

There s been some incidents/ accidents reported, have you experienced anything of that type while playing?

I have not experienced any accidents while playing this new game, but I have been aware of my surroundings but it can be distracting in high foot traffic areas because people want you to move and not be catching Pokemon.

Have you always been a pokemon fan and whats your favourite pokemon?

I started playing Pokemon at a young age and I always liked the style of the game and graphics, the designs and story I thought were cool, now that I’m older (23) it’s just like revisiting my childhood ha

But it’s interesting concept that cards are irreverent and you catch virtual things, much less reading. My favorite is Squirtle.

MARIA

Pokemon Go is a pretty new type of game, how difficult is it to play?

it’s pretty easy. All u have to do is walk around and wait for a Pokemon to appear.

There s been some incidents/ accidents reported, have you experienced anything of that type while playing?

No. I’m not so fanatic to risk my life so as to catch a Pokemon.
