Pokemon Go Craze Sweeps U.S.
The company Nintendo and Niantic created an extremely popular game called Pokemon Go.
In this game, the cute monsters can be collected outdoors using our phone’s camera, map and location tracker. As players, walk around our city or neighborhood, they can encounter and capture colorful characters. The characters are captured by throwing virtual balls into hoops near the character.
This game has both strong and weak points.In some cases,it is said that those people who are mostly spending their time inside are now more exposed outside looking for the characters. The latter is that this app requests access to private information, like emails and players locations but the issue is already addressed .
I am against on this game for two reasons
Firstly, this game causes traffic accidents. In fact, in Japan, drivers play it even when driving a car so some people were killed and involved into accidents. Furthermore, some people who are playing while walking can cause danger to them as well because they put their concentration on the screen instead of the road.
Secondly, people are gathering around one place to catch the character that they needed to continue the game. If the hotspot is near my place , i dont really feel good about it. When a large number of the general public gather, the probability of causing accidents will increase. It’s difficult to keep the place safe.
Therefore, I am against on this game for two reasons. When we play it, we have to follow some rules and play with sense of morality.
