Lethal Mobile Game

Nintendo's new game Pokemon Go has become a hit this summer. I do not know why. It turns some humans insane. They focus on the game and its virtual additions to reality, rather than reality itself. If it has not gone too far before, it must have gone too far in Japan now. A man was driving his car while playing, and hit two woman pedestrians, killing one and seriously hurting the other. He has told the police he did not watch the road carefully.

Not everything from Japan is great. A mobile game making a man to cause an accident where another human is killed cannot be great. It is bad. I hope the Pokemon Go frenzy will soon come to an end. It would not be a good solution to ban the game. Bans must be a last resort.
