    takes place in a dystopian future where this virtual system/game called the oasis is the basis of the story. The creator of oasis leaves in his will a hidden easter egg throughout the game and who ever finds it inherits the entire oasis program and billions and billions of dollars. The main character wade watts has to solve riddles, play classic arcade games as well as remember key references to 80's pop culture such as movies, tv shows, video games, d&d, music in order to find the keys to the egg.

    I honestly dont know how theyre going to get the rights to most of the references from monty python, to the delorean, to ultraman.

    All video game and 80's geeks should read this book. Im really looking forward to the movie, although i kinda think this story probably deserves 2 movies as it might strip so much to fit into 1.
    Simon Pegg is too goddamn old for the role. (just looked it up, Pegg isn't playing the role of Parzival thank fuck)

    Ready Player One is fucking great and I much recommend the book to everybody here. It's a sincere tribute to gaming, and through a dystopian/virtual reality world it describes the Internet generation incredibly well.

    I'm willing to bet they fuck up the film, and there's too many licensed properties referenced in the film for them to bring to film, but we'll see.

    spielberg said he wont he referencing his own movies which is a bit lame. Yeah they can replace them with other properties but as along as they keep it as close to the book as possible id ba happy. The girl playing artemis is wayy to pretty for the character. Im hoping we get a trailer soon?
