Olba, Joses S.MEDIA102 - A81Reaction Paper(Ready Player One)The first part of the film we can see that most of the people are spending their time on play-ing a virtual reality game. Ready Player One is a dystopian futuristic novel where the year is2045; with the real world being full of harsh places, overpopulation, unemployment and ofcourse, hunger with all of these problems, people have the ability to escape from it by playing avirtual reality video game called OASIS. Thanks to the richest person in the world who is namedJames Halliday, the creator of the game OASIS where anyone can be what they want and anyonecan do what they want except for sleeping, bathroom breaks, and eating which can be forgottenby playing the game. Before James Halliday died, he created an Easter Egg that was hidden in-side the OASIS, hidden in smaller games within it. Whoever gets to be the first one to find it willearn the prize of having the sole ownership of the OASIS. Now, in order to find this, one mustneed to find three keys to unlock three magical doors. A war started because of Halliday’s com-petition, making the second largest company in the world, the IOI or the Innovative Online In-dustries, build their own army called “The Sixers”. IOI put everything they had in winning theHalliday competition as it was ordered by the head, Nolan Sorrento, who wanted to find theEaster Egg first to take over OASIS.Wade Watts, also known as Parzival, is the main character or the protagonist of the movie to-gether with his friends Aech, Daito, Scho and Art3mis. All of whom possess and share the samemindset to win the competition. They frequent in Halliday’s journal to studyhis life and in the
process, they meet the curator who played a big role in the story as he helps them and guidesthem in finding the three keys for the easter eggs. They all succeed in winning the first and sec-ond key, with Nolan and his IOI team closing on for a snatch at the lead. The last challenge forthe last key is to play the Atari 2600 console, a game that is found to be questionable as there isnot much progress. The minds at the headquarters of IOI encounter trouble about which gameshould be played next, coming to a conclusion as they decided to try Adventure. All the Sixerstried their best to win the game but whenever they won, they would die and lose the game butParzival immediately understood that the concept of the game is not actually about winning, it’sabout playing and finding the Easter Egg hidden inside it. Nolan refuses for the events to con-tinue unfolding and breaks the Orb of Osuvox that made the OASIS disappear and kill all of theplayers’ avatars. Fortunately, Parzival came back holding a quarter, the one that Ogden Morrowor the Curator gave him. Unknown to Parzival, it was actually an extra life. Parzival wins thethird key and finally meets James Halliday as Anorak. Anorak offers him a contract, to which allthat he needs to do is sign it and the OASISand everything else, even the riches in the world,
