In the past, video games were seen by most as something that wasn't quite healthy for society. Some saw them as a strange cult-like practice that presumably no "normal" person would want to be a part of, others have come to believe that they encourage some of the violent tendencies that we see in people today, and still others only see it as a cause for introverted behavior.
10 years later, the gaming community has not only grown, but has pulled a few surprises out of its hat, one of those surprises being a mobile app by the name of Pokemon GO. Reaching up to 40+ million downloads worldwide, the app has been making its way into the hearts of many a player who hold the little critters from the games in a special place in their hearts. Even non-gamers have begun to pick it up! But the app isn't just entertaining those who enjoy it, it's also building a healthy community of individuals that, under normal circumstances, wouldn't have been possible.
