I’ve never played Pokemon GO. I downloaded it the day it came out and the servers were so overloaded that I was never able to create an account. Deleted it and never went back to it.
This has nothing to do with anything but I just figured I’d share.

Every time I see a new story about Go being a success, I always remember my marketing class where my professor argued it was not gonna last and I argued it would last years. It not much, but it makes me happy Smile

Go doing well, does it even matter if the main games show up at this point?

I have probably played this game more than any other game ever. I play it every time I go for a walk or go to a new place. It has even introduced me to new places because I used to look up where the Pokemon Nests were and travel to them. Ton of fun with this simple game, even with the server issues in the beginning back when it had more daily active users than Snapchat. I'm finally very very close to level 40 after these years of playing. lol
