At its core, Pokémon GO is one of the first popular AR games and another Wii-like success for Nintendo, but it’s riddled with bugs and comes up short on some of the biggest tenants of the Pokémon franchise. Pokémon GO pushes people to go outside, explore their town and interact with others, and that’s what gives it its potential.
Features can be added, bugs can be squashed, and eventually, everyone is going to be able to play Pokemon GO without any trouble. The things it already does well, like mashing up the world of pocket monsters with the more mundane reality we occupy, and not so subtly telling us to get out there and walk around, it already has down pat.
So we've got a game that I don't enjoy from any angle (which sucks), but it's also dominating the cultural conversation right now (which is great). I'm torn on this one, honestly! See, I don't recommend Pokémon Go the video game. But I can't get enough of Pokémon Go the cultural artifact. It's a Videodrome-esque obsession, and I'm very disappointed in how excited I am to play my part. Long live the new flesh.
