Multi-player role playing games are operated by users in their homes through consoles hooked up to the Internet.
The Movie Reality:
A virtual reality game created by game designers with caps lock issues,
users plug into organic pods via a bioport in their spine.
Players embark on a mysterious game. In which, another game is played. And possibly another. To help win the game, they chop up frogs, eat repugnant fish and make guns out of bones.
If We Lived In The Movies:
Bugger all would get done (pots being washed, trousers ironed, etc.) as everyone is constantly distracting each other by asking if they’re still in a game.
