    I don't really see young individuals using Facebook to play social games, but at the same time I don't see young individuals playing MMORPGs, definitely not FPS, MOBAs, etc.

    What I think suits young individuals best are mobile games (iPad, iPod Touch, but not iPhone or Samsung Galaxy), and Nintendo consoles (2DS/2DS XL, regular DS, etc.). A lot of mobile games seem simple or kid-friendly, and most Nintendo games are suitable for children.

    There may be some exceptions where social games could be better than other games for younger individuals, like if you have parental supervision, but I just don't see kids at such a young age play social games.

    Well that's how I see it at least. Other people may have different views and opinions on what's good for young individuals when looking at things such as the price of the device (for example, would you give your child your old computer or buy them a new iPad), convenience, type of games, etc., not just safety.

    As Cookies said ain't much to argue about!!! You sir have DEFINITELY made a strong argument there!!!! hahahahha
    Perhaps i should have specified the age lets say 9-15 years old..younger ppl than that definitely play on tablets and phones (Angry Birds etc)!!!
    The first game i ever played on pc was Max Pain and i was around 11-12 years old... After that i went to mmorpgs like Mu and L2!!!
    Well my generation had Nintendo Devices and Consoles like PS1 or cheaper ones when i was below 9 years old i guess todays kids play on tablets and phones like u said...

    I used to play pokemon on gameboy advance and we connected them with game link cables and fought using our pokemon!!! Man that was awesome!!! Too bad that Pokemon Go doesnt have any resemblance to it...

    Also, it'll be another source for players to play pokemon on. Not only that, but perhaps even more fans would get into the game.

    I really liked the idea of dueling other ppl and lvling up my pokemon through battles... How pokemon go has neither of these great options alludes me...

    Also players wouldn't have to outside so much or travel to find different monsters :)

    Well in the beginning that idea excited me since i thought instead of sitting on the pc the whole day i would be walking around playing!!! The time i started going out was boiling hot outside.. You can guess how it was... Not to mention my phone shut down due to overheating...
