Pokeman Go fever in Santo Domingo
The media is following the effects of the Pokeman Go game as apparently Santo Domingo gamesters are not spared from the global frenzy. Listin Diario reports that children, youths, adults and seniors have been taken by the game. Players were seen at the Plaza de la Cultura, named “Pokepark” by the players in their quest to trap the largest possible number of pokemons. Another popular spot to play the game is the Mirador del Sur Park.
Local psychiatrist Jose Miguel Gomez warned that the game can be addictive and may provoke abnormal social behavior similar to drug dependency. He said he has been treating gamers for addiction like symptoms – with many of his affected patients after admitting to being glued their screens 8 to 12 hours playing Pokeman Go.
