Pokemon GO is all the rage right now, and for good reason. After years of playing on Game Boy and Nintendo 3DS, fans of the monster capturing series can finally become adventurers themselves. Pokemon GO uses the power of augmented reality to let players find Pokemon right in their own neighborhoods. All they have to do is walk around, and once they get an alert, they can try to catch one of these powerful little critters all for themselves. There’s even Gyms for you to challenge and take over, adding in just the right amount of competitive fuel to everyone’s dream journey.
Needless to say, that all of these mechanics, along with the fact that just about everyone who’s ever played a Pokemon game has wanted this for ages, Pokemon GO is becoming quite addictive. Of course, there are those who will deny falling victim to such a simple, yet satisfying game. But chances are that it has sunk its claws deep into you, and that’s okay, you’re not alone.
