Books like Warcross and Ready Player One also examine virtual reality worlds, or worlds where you can log in and lose yourself. The movie Strange Days examined this too a while back. I loved Warcross- I mean who wouldn't want to enter a virtual reality game world where you could experience just about any genre? Giant robot combat? Check. Hunting vampires in gaslight London? Sure. Living out a Jane Austen novel? Why not. The possibilities are endless. So for fun, I got to thinking which worlds I'd most like to visit. I'll list three, and then provide a list of other possible worlds/ genres I'd love to experience. Let me know what your three would be!
Middle- earth. I would definitely want to spend some time here, touring the Shire and
getting drunk at the Green Dragon Inn exploring the countryside, and hanging out at Rivendell of course.
Warcross. I loved this book and the whole concept of the teams and the game. Can I play????
Star Wars. Probably a no- brainer. I've played a bit of Star Wars: The Old Republic, and while it's fun, imagine playing a virtual reality version, where you are IN the world. Would I ever leave??
Okay my list of other possibilities.
1) Vampire hunting in a gaslight version of London. Or Paris.
2) Zombie apocalypse! Like that zombie running game but for realsies (well, VR realsies anyways).
3) A found family on an interstellar ship- think The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet (actually can I just live in that universe??) or Starflight.
