Pokémon Go, the new smartphone game has made headlines about the crashes just within an hour the game launched. Though, the game has not been released in Canada yet, but it has made its way where the boundaries are nothing for the tech-savvy to find a way. The video game was first released in 1996 The original Pokémon games were role-playing games (RPGs) that had an element of strategy, created by Satoshi Tajiri for the Game Boy.
Within its first two days of release, the game raised safety concerns among players. In fact multiple people also suffered minor injuries from falling while playing the game due to being distracted. Earlier, Pokémon was a staple around the neighbourhood, with kids at the doorstep playing “I got it, “I got it, I want that”, just like a never ending game. And now, Nintendo in conjunction with Niantic has done the near-impossible job by firing up this imagination of the grown ups, where they are chasing Pikachu, setting their sights on an even bigger demographic.
All you need is a phone and data plan or Wifi connection, but this has become too dangerous, as people have started chasing Pikachu at home, offices, going on the streets and moreover catching while driving. And as a matter of safety concern, we suggest you all “it is just a game, but life is not”, keep yourself out of such incidence and be aware of their surroundings while trying to catch them all. However, critics warn that the game could become a nightmare if children play without exercising caution.
The game has caused crashes in the U.S but be cautious to repeat this scenario in India.
