In Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, The OASIS is a Virtual Reality theme park in which anything is possible. It also looks like the coolest video game of all time, an all-encompassing digital universe in which players can play any game in any genre. It’s the kind of place you’d want to hang out even without the prospect of Easter Eggs and endless riches.
Sadly, The OASIS isn’t real (not yet, anyway). But it is the latest in a long line of fictional video games that look like they’d be a lot more fun than the mediocre releases currently available for download. With that in mind, we thought we’d highlight some of the best. Here are eleven fictional video games that we wish we had the opportunity to play, presented in honour of the OASIS.
