Frankly, aside from Numb3rs and Star Trek’s holodeck, Hollywood fails at integrating virtual online worlds into an episode. The CSI: New York one was especially cringe worthy. I think a better approach is to keep things in viewers’ imagination, than put it on the screen and embarrass yourself.
What is Fantasy? It’s magic and anything you want it to be; the name really says it all. Free to play but with a catch: instead of microtransactions or buying in-game credits with real money, you commit various criminal acts. The MAN is behind the scheme and gets chaos to bloom.
Giles thinks he is rebuilding the Library of Alexandria; Willow runs an orphanage for stray cats; someone else is trying to win the World Series; and so on. Buffy does not see anything, because this magic does not work on her. For everyone else, it is a dream come true.
That is why there is no footage of the game – the content is individualized. What you see on the screen is unique and belongs solely to you. And in order to play and progress, you will only be too happy to do a few things it asks. What’s a little mayhem and violence in return for your very own Fantasy? Discuss in FORUMS.
