Title: Pokemon Go!
Post by: Zarniwoop on 26 July 2016, 10:43:04
Not sure how I feel about this "craze" whilst it appears to get more people outside it is turning them into phone zombies. You can't really appreciated the great outdoors by staring at it through augmented reality!

The big downside for me is that all these extra people milling about are not really paying attention to where they are going, meaning others have to avoid them, and more importantly they are dropping litter everywhere!.

Now I may not understand the "fun" element of playing this game but I do understand that there "fun" is ruining mine as I have to walk my dog through others rubbish spoiling once beautiful parks and rivers.

Come on people if you've finished with something find a bin, there are plenty around or just take it back home and dispose of it there, the floor is not a *damn* bin have some respect for others and maybe just maybe they will respect you back..

I hope these people will continue to enjoy the outside once the "craze" has died down or replaced with the next greatest thing but l just want to be able to enjoy the same space without it being spoiled.

You've got to humour them to a degree. Lot of them haven't really been outside in a while. :)

I saw someone in Nottingham on Monday walk out in front of a Tram whilst on Pokemon!
He looked very surprised when the big noisy green and silver dragon heading towards him turned out to be a real.  ;D

The funny thing was, he almost dropped his phone jumping out of the way. >:D
