I have never been a gamer because video games make me dizzy. However, I have gotten hooked playing Pokémon GO on the iPhone. I like several things about the game. The technology is impressive. Thinking about millions of people playing the game at the same time with all the results and triggers happening in the cloud is really amazing. The graphics and animations are very professional and entertaining. Lastly, Pokémon Go fits nicely with my habit of daily walks. So far, while playing the game since July 2016, I have walked more than 375 miles. You do have to be careful you don’t walk into a tree or a moving car. See the table below for the current statistics.
|Level achieved out of 40 possible||36|
|Number of PokéStops visited in U.S.||43|
|Number of PokéStops visited in Europe||13|
|Number of Pokémon caught out of 720||297|
|Total Experience Points earned||7,507,910|
Not bad for somebody 3-6 times older than the average Pokémon Go player.
