Twitch Plays Pokemon, the social experiment that allows thousands of users to play the same Pokemon game, is blowing up the internet. Almost 10 days have passed since the stream began so, to celebrate, I’ve decided to take my journalist hat off and drop here the 13 GIFs that best describe the Twitch Plays Pokemon experience.
1. The troll that always screws it up for everyone.
2. The indecisiveness of thousands of people.
3. The incessant appearance of the Helix Fossil.
4. The call for Democracy.
5. The inevitable return to Anarchy (114 votes for the Start button, really?)
6. The confusion and chaos that Anarchy creates.
7. The tragedies caused by button bashers.
8. The frustrating goal that nobody seems to care about.
9. The terrible coordination.
10. The 10-year-old who has no idea where to go because he was born after Pokemon was what all the cool kids played.
11. Everyone else who has not played Pokemon.
12. Despite all of this, the worldwide connection of a huge community of nostalgic fans that keep checking…
13. …how hysterically miraculous it is that we have managed to achieve anything in this game.
