A study showed that within a 6-week period subsequent to downloading Pokemon-Go, it was observed that physical activity took a gradual decrease. The question is - how would it be possible to sustain physical activity using virtual reality games. Pokemon-Go has dipped in popularity due to the stagnation that most players face after reaching a high enough level. Over time, there are fewer Pokemons to catch, and fewer places to explore. It is definitely impossible to create infinite amounts of Pokemon to sustain the interest of players worldwide, so would it actually be possible for Virtual Reality games to sustain interest in the long-run?
