You've played Pokemon Go, amirite?
As a person who grew up watching it and playing it on Gameboy, I had to give it a shot. I suppose you can consider me to be a passive player. I don't do all the mindless walking into traffic but it's pretty entertaining. My only complaint is that you don't battle the pokemon that you catch when that's always been how you get them in the show and in other games. It also seems like a better way to increase your experience rather than have to give them candies and such.
