Pokemon Go. What's the point?

Ok, I can see why kids might want to play this, but the number of (so-called) grown adults playing it baffles the hell out of me. Some of the shit I've seen on Facebook and Twitter from otherwise perfectly rational people going batshit crazy because they've just found some rare creature outside the local supermarket is absolutely mental.

For me personally, nostalgia, and it's fun getting together with my cousins to go on random walks.

If you are an adult, seriously, can you not find something else to do?

It does not happen often, and actually makes me question my own judgement, but you might have a bloody good point.

This entire phenomenon is beyond bizarre really and almost like a form of mass hysteria.

It's good for getting the kids active. If adults want to play along as well I don't see the problem personally. Stop being a whiny whinging bastard

Fair enough I suppose, people with kids may want to join in, but what's the excuse for those playing who haven't got kids?

A valid point. And it is perhaps more than a little churlish to question peoples motives.

But still.......its bloody daft when you think about it.

Pokemon Go has just led to more morons standing in the middle of the footpath without a care in the world about the people that are trying to walk past. I hope they all find a Pikachu at the bottom of a deep, deep pit and can't get back out.

As long as they manage to hook a rope round your ankle it's all good.

Someone posted on YouTube the other day that there were about 300 people in a park trying to catch a charizard. Surely that's the point, no?

People wandering about like zombies, all staring at their phones whilst trying to catch a cartoon creature? Not sure where the good is.

Brilliant. No xenophobia there, just people having fun together (sort of, in a modern, socially backward way).

Nostalgia.

Not to mention it gets people going outside more. But I guess people can't enjoy themselves these days.
