PokÃ©mon Go had a week unlike any video game Iâ€™ve covered in my career. Hereâ€™s a collection of the posts we penned last week, ranging from players finding dead bodies to Craigslist entrepreneurs selling pre-played accounts.
My friend and former boss Chris Grant wrote about the staggering demand for coverage at our sister-site Polygon. In "Some thoughts on Nintendoâ€™s big week," Grant contextualized the game within Nintendoâ€™s unusual year. And he noted how PokÃ©mon Go inspired the most popular posts not simply on the video game outlet, but across Vox Media, from The Verge to Racked to Vox.com.
But why? And how? And when will this moment pass, or has it already? I invited our Games Editor and PokÃ©mon expert Andrew Webster onto the show to provide background on the phenomenon, and speculate as to what its future might look like.
