Being stuck beneath a tiny little shelter thingy, because it's pouring rain and you forgot your umbrella and you can't glyhp in the rain.
Planning secret missions on napkins while drinking beer with a group of people you would never have met otherwise.
Staying up until 2am chatting with people from around the world about why or why not pineapple is good on pizza.

Spending an entire day only playing in game a few minutes but spending the rest of the time planning anomalies, catching up with agents, solving puzzles, discussing 20 different things related to ingress, and changing your driving route to better hack portals.
...the most expensive free game ever
Ingress is an excuse to get out in the fresh air for an hour after a long day.
Ingress is motivation to travel, to see new places and hang out with friends, or make new ones, in a greater range of cities/countries in 5 short years than I'd been to in my previous 31.
Ingress is a community and a support network, in any city in the world I can probably find a friendly face, someone to recommend a local bar or restaurant, someone to tell me which neighbourhoods are sketchiest after dark.
Ingress is a deeply thoughtful strategic game, and Ingress is about mashing the fire (or deploy) button as fast as you can.
Ingress is frustrating, and immensely satisfying, and sometimes both in the same 5 minute period.
Ingress is how I met my partner.
