A Ready Player One essay refers to the 2018 sci-fi movie directed by Steven Spielberg and based on a similarly titled 2011 novel by Ernest Cline. It depicts a desolating world suffering from hardships and low quality of life. People seek refuge in a realistic virtual reality world called the OASIS, where they play, socialize, advance their avatars, etc. Ready Player One follows the story of a teenager, Wade, and his friends as they try to solve a grand quest, the prize of which is full ownership of the OASIS. Ready Player One is important because it portrays a very realistic vision of the future we are heading to, a future in which we would rather choose illusion over reality.
