Can a company like [Nintendo] really be held liable for the injuries or loss by any person playing their game? I do not think so. In that case we might as well close down all tobacco and alcohol companies because it is their fault so many people die because of alcohol of smoking related incidents. Heck, close down casinos and car companies, they are also the cause for much grief in this world…

See how silly it becomes and the dark place it takes us too? I think people, and the media, should stop looking for external sources as the source of their own shortcoming. If I fail my exams, because I played video game too late, I cannot blame the game and say that it was too addictive. I am the one with the problem and I am the one who will have to own up to it.

Same for [Pokemon Go]. If I enter a dangerous area, knowing it is dangerous, in pursuit of something that is not even real, then there is another underlying issue there. In my own word, natural culling, but that seems a bit too insensitive. I do not play the game, but my spouse does. She will be the first to say that she will not go to extreme lengths that might put herself in danger, but the game has helped get to be a bit more active during lunch time at work just to get up and moving about.

This was the original intention of the game (And of course to make money), but I do not think we should be so quick to blame the platform or the company for the shortcomings of a few individuals.

As suspected and mentioned by some in this Thread the suits against Pokemon Go have begun. People who do not play the game, the majority of people by the way, are not pleased with Pokemon Go's intrusion in their lives / space.

I will have to admit that on this are sadly I do not have much knowledge. That is, the invasion of privacy. I am assuming the rest of the world looks a bit different, but here in South Africa, all houses have high fences/walls and angry dogs. Sad as it is, people are more likely to be shot or bitten as mistaken intruders. I am guessing this has created a more wary player in our country as people are constantly aware of the dangers lurking in any area… even the good neighborhoods.

It was bound to happen and I expect to see more. While the game might be 'innocent' the kinds of people behind of the phone do not understand when to stop! Its an addiction that truly affects other people.
