What is actually wrong with people. Have fun and all but is it really that important you have to clog up the streets in the thousands, when and where other people need to go about their day-to-day?

Pokemon Go is not even that good. Fun casual distraction, but not life-absorbing. Baffling.

So the Internet was right, this game is truly dead. I mean have you ever seen a deadder game than this?

Watch Marvel Studios get Niniac to put a Mewtwo in a strategic location to motivate the Avengers: Infinity War extras.

But seriously, this is insane.

1 Snorlax? So a monumental waste of time for everyone else? Or is that not now Pokémon Go works?

That is right outside of the beitou subway station, near the end of the red line.

It is not uncommon to see large crowds in beitou during the weekends/holidays. However, on a regular workday...that is extra sad.

I love how people keep slating pokemon go players on here.

Your on neogaf ffs.
...and? You are on NeoGAF as well?

Feeling a bit insecure at the moment about your precious Go? :(

It's just varying opinions to what is an objectively crazy event.

All these people happy, chasing imagination. Not hurting each or anyone else but no, that ain't allowed. People have days off work, is that ok? Is that possible? People have life schedules different to you, is that ok? Why is it sad?

And with that I'm not willing to slam and ridicule people for playing and enjoying a video game.
Can't speak for others but my expressed "ridicule" was of the behaviour these people displayed, i.e. blocking public roads and places, disrupting traffic and public transport and people needing to get to place, in crowds of thousands - all to catch a virtual Pokemon. My opinion is that their priorities/thought for others is pretty shit. Playing a video game is one thing, but playing it and doing... this, is a whole other ball game.

If you get sensitive because people on NeoGaf think Pokemon Go players blocking roads is stupid, too bad for you.

No ridicule here for playing the actual game itself, so long as, you know, you do the bare minimum required to not disrupt other people's lives (though I do personally think it's overrated) - unless you count my comment for Pokemon Go being a "Fun casual distraction, but not life-absorbing. Baffling" as somehow offensive.

Now - sensitive gamers who take differing opinions against the games they like to heart - those are who I like to slam. ;)
