"Hey, at least Pokemon Go gets gamers out of their houses and getting exercise walking around"... to McDonald's.

I don't play these games and I don't eat McDonald.

Already had three kids on bicycles doing Pokemon Go almost run over my dog!!! Dumbest and most dangerous game ever invented!! Who will be liable for accidents?

Seems this whole "getting out of the house" meme is a consequence of the PlayStation and Xbox generation. Never had the urge to stay in the house when was a kid. Street football, basketball, long bike trips, local fishing hole, etc. give it some time, it won't last long IMO. That's why they're hyping it, kind of like the Pets.com IPO.

Ha ha ha .... these Otakus will form large groups and hang out blocking the space in the restaurant without buying a thing!

Economic Suicide for the restaurant business......Pika!

Fast food and Pokemon don't mix.

On Friday night I tried to order dinner for delivery from McDonalds, as I do once a week or so. I usually have to wait only 20 to 30 minutes for my food to arrive, but on Friday the wait was two-and-a-half hours. I ended up getting pizza instead. In the short term, the economic benefit to McDonald's may be even bigger than the article states.
