      I'm guessing it's a reference that she got, and thought was funny. And having a nostalgic reference on a video, which is itself talking about a book that is about 80% nostalgic references... It was probably something she couldn't ignore. I know I couldn't. That's why I upvoted OP's comment.

    In a RPO speedrun the godawful prose will be the gratest challenge. "I went there and did this, then I went that other place and did that, everybody cheered me 'cause I'm awesome and [insert 4 paragraphs of 80's media references here]". You read 2 paragraphs and your mind starts zoning out to other things. The self-important masturbatory narrative of the self-important masturbatory protagonist are just a bonus. This book makes me sad for liking the things I like. ._.

    One of the takeaways of WarGames is that life is precious. Professor Falken, a grieving father of a deceased child, decided to incorporate his child into a virtual reality so that he could continue to visit with him and play some games. His comment on the world starting over when it's done with humanity "with the bees," though inspired by the Cold War and in the shadow of the nuclear race, was meant to instruct that life is so much more precious than the digital world of simulations. I haven't read the book Ready Player One but I have lived through that era and the movie did have a huge impact on a generation--much moreso than The Shining.

    Idk I really enjoyed the book. 🤷🏻‍♀️ One of my favorites. I don’t even care about video games or 80s culture, I thought it was a really fun adventure. But I couldn’t even get halfway through the movie. Mostly because my plane landed and I didn’t care to continue watching later on, haha. I think it ruined all the exciting parts of the book. The whole thing drove me nuts.

    honestly, both the book and the movie were kinda bleh. the book was more annoying I think, because the author just kept adding references to things to prove that he's cool and in-the-know. but real gamers aren't like most of what he wrote. people don't talk like that. also, gamers are hounded by trolls and assholes online, and I read none of that in the book. the characters were bland also, and seemed more like caricatures of the personalities they represented. there's a lot more I can say, but my brain's not working right now, so that's it for now.

    I think the book wasn't a love letter so much as a "look how much I know about this stuff" -- especially in the book, with a whole gratuitous description of the SwordQuest fiasco at the very beginning... which the author could learn in about 30 minutes at a retro game website. Your point about Sorento just "reference dropping" for his own personal gain being kind of what Ernest Cline has done hits the mark solidly and is the overall impression I get. Ernest Cline kept an eye on the Nostalgia Cycle and released his book with perfect timing.

    In many ways, "Ready Player One" is just a fun novel that doesn't have a lot of deep themes and underlying symbolism. I do think, though, that it's intentional that there isn't deep meaning to the creators' Easter egg hunt, or whether he learned anything.
    One thing they left out of the film that I did like in the books was the fact that everyone attends school in the Oasis. Bullyjng has decreased because, obviously , noone can see the physical things that they usually make fun of. In the book, Percival is not very goodlooking either. And he only has the tech to access the Oasis because it was issued to him for school.
    I do think that the hunt was a ego thing for the guy, if you learn about me- you can win. And it allowed him to give his company to the person who had gotten to know him best- even tho he was a loner, and was now dead.

    I found it weird that the movie was hung up on a lot of 80's pop culture. It takes place in 2045. Usually pop culture references die off after about 30-50 decades. They get a resurgence when the people that grew up with them as kids become the new main adult population. (EG: people that grew up with Nintendo in the 80's are the current adult population now, and there's a huge retro NES market revival). But, when they get older / elderly.. pop culture moves on. Kids grow up with their own pop culture. So, I find it very hard to believe that 80's pop culture bullshit has been so amazing that it was what folks 60+ years later have created a virtual world around it all. (edit) AND, that later generations haven't made pop culture amazing enough to replace it. So, are we to assume that later generations were just lazy in creating stuff? And since most of our 80's pop culture stuff came from companies spoon-feeding it to us, but the 2045 future is basically ran by mega-corps.. are we saying mega-corps are no longer masters of creating pop-culture to spoon-feed kids? Just so many questions.. and it's annoying.

    I second the bit about the furries (and the rest really). I was just re-watching an old episode of "Star Trek: DS9", where they encounter an anomaly that causes the fantasies in the minds of the people on the station to come to life. Of an entire space station, only two people ended up with a THOT and one did it by accident. You cannot tell me that on an entire station only one guy was having n errant fantasy about having sex with someone or that only one guy went "Fantasies come true?! Where are my THOTs??" They just write for what they would want it to be and never think about what would actually happen. You know that station would have been full of fantasy hoes, and at least part of them would have been furries.

    Thinking about your comment about knowing all of war games by heart like, if I HAD to, i could probably recite all of the nightmare before christmas from memory... I've been watching it since I was 4 years old and I usually watch it around once a year, it's more than nostalgia at this point like I don't own any memorabilia really but its almost certainly my 'favourite' movie? Its definitely the only movie I'm pretty confident I could recite from memory. So with that in mind, I do acknowledge it's possible that war games can be recited from memory for this sort of contest. But the weird thing is, they didn't know that war games would be important. It could have been ANY movie. They didn't even know they'd need to know all the dialogue! They didn't know they'd need to recite any movie dialogue at all, or anything, that's why it took so long for the game to get started because no one knew where to even start looking or what any of the challenges would be. So are we to assume that he could also have done this if it was, say, back to the future? Or ladyhawke? Or the shining? Like... it's such a huge leap. I love the novel so much it really nails that adventure story vibe and I got a weird thrill out of all the pop culture references etc etc but nothings above reproach. There's a lot of weird shit in the movie and the book, and I love it, but it definitely requires suspension of belief that borders on ridiculous.

    Somethings really bothered me about the movie. They basically skipped the entire second half of the book and more about the actual quest. Also where Wade moves and how he isolates himself (for five years I think)and how that sparked up issues. I have WAY more to say but I would be here for hours.

    They didn't even deal with the whole poverty thing, like the book made a point that we created an entire new world and continued to have the exact same poverty crisis as in reality... the only reason that bothered me so much was because I found it so interesting, like wade's main goal was to keep corporate away from the oasis, and yet everything was so monetized already...
    It's hard to see the oasis as negative, and identify with Hallaway's goal to destroy it when the entire movie showed only the gorgeous aspects of if.
    Because wade started out as a wealthy character, with easy access to the oasis and a horrible life in reality, the true negative impact of the oasis isn't properly explored.
    Sorry for the potential bad grammar and spelling, as well as the extremely long rant, this has needed to get off of my chest for a while now
