The already wide range of video game possibilities become limitless in the fictional worlds of books, comics, and movies. Games are then no longer confined to physical, technological, or even moral boundaries.

    The only way I would be halfway cool with Oasis is if I could just live in Mid-World.

    You probably could! It seemed like every franchise more or less had its own virtual "planet."

    Perk could be that the Oasis (from Ready Player One) might give a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory like life from winning its meta game.

    Very true! It actually gets compared to Wonka's contest several times throughout the book, especially considering how the winner of the "Egg Hunt" automatically gains ownership of the company behind Oasis.
