If watching science fiction movies can help mentally bridge the distance between the present and the future, cocooning your mind into the future through video games takes it to another level.
Right now - the biggest game in the world is Cyberpunk 2077 and its primary strategy for recruiting new players to explore the year 2077 - is controversy.
The game itself is apparently full of bugs and glitches and technical issues, but this doesn't seem to have affected the amount of hype that it has generated or its popularity.
For some time now militaries around the world have been using VR to prepare their personal for potential combat scenarios, but one wonders about the potential for preparing normal people for the future of work or the future of life in the future by playing games like Cyberpunk 2077?
Makes you wonder if gamers are more prepared for the time yet to come compared to the rest of us?
