The following information comes from Issue 1 of Backlog and Bucket List Gaming:


THE POKEMON GO BRILLIANCE:

The idea of completing a collection of pocket sized animals, that are all around us, by using a device that most already have while doing things we have to do anyway (a long commute, train ride, etc.) is brilliant.

Why not make that hour-long trek to work fun by catching yet another Pidgey or that uncommon pocket monster? You might as well, because you’ll need as much Pokemon to transfer to the Professor in order to accumulate as many Pokemon candy as you can get.

THE POKEMON GO CRAZE:

If you are wondering what the craze is all about, wonder no more. People like Pokemon. For twenty years, kids who have since grown into adults have always wanted to catch Pokemon in the real world. It is exactly this contagious excitement that has spread from Pokemon fans to non-Pokemon fans and curious coworkers and family members alike.

WHY POKEMON GO IS A BUCKET LIST GAME:

The nature of the app has also helped this global phenomena to happen—Pokemon GO is free-to-play and to keep on playing, it is on both the Apple and Google stores, and a large number of mobile devices can run the game.

A fun free game with low barrier to entry that delivers an experience millions of people around the world have been waiting for? Pokemon GO didn’t have a chance of not being popular.

POKEMON GO IS NEW:

I’ve taken walks that lasted for hours, along with my spouse, around a nearby marina nearly every night since the game has launched, simply to catch Pokemon, only to find groups of three or more people buzzing around doing the exact same thing.

It feels like everyone is sharing the same experience, a radically different feeling than when I’m playing—say—a game on Steam or new game that only those tuned into the gaming industry would care about.

POKEMON GO IS FUN:

I actually saw a girl pump her arm in the air in excitement from catching a Pokemon; a mother with her children perplexed at how many poke balls it took to catch a critter; a group of teens in a van stopped me to ask me what team I was on after battling at a Pokemon Gym, then the driver proceeded to compliment the Pidgey I left at the Pokemon Gym.

POKEMON GO IS LIKE HALLOWEEN:

With so many people on the streets, I have come to call this experience “Trick-Or-Treating for Grown Ups” . . . and kids, and parents, and for everyone. No one is left out even if not everyone is playing.

The closest I’ve felt to this experience is on Halloween, and I don’t want it to end. One day, it will for “all good things must end”. But for now, Pokemon GO is an unforgettable social experience that is easy to play . . . CONTINUE READING NEXT WEEK

The following information comes from Issue 1 of Backlog and Bucket List Gaming:


THE POKEMON GO EXPERIENCE:

Pokemon GO deserves to be on every gamers bucket list simply for the experience one gets by playing it.

It’s an experience the mobile app may not hold onto in the years to come when the player base normalizes, but at the game’s launch is a different story.

POKEMON GO IS SOCIAL:

What experience would that be? It’s hard to explain, but I’ll try my best. It is a social experience like no other and that’s not hyperbole. Before July, seeing someone with a phone meant that person was texting, checking Facebook, or using some other app independent of everyone else; a singular experience others were not privy.

After Pokemon GO, however, almost every person walking around with a phone in-hand is playing the game. And there are dozens upon dozens of players outside at almost all hours of the day . . . CONTINUE READING NEXT WEEK
