For all the talk about video games supposedly only playing with friends over the internet in multiplayer, the mobile game Pokémon Go is planning to convince fans to play together in person via a series of meetup events with special items. The goal is for players to explore together and find new event-exclusive Pokémon and items. First the game gets players out of the house and exploring (which has been a good thing depending on where players roamed) and now they get them playing together. It’s like video games aren’t such a bad thing after all.
