Living in the real world can be fun sometimes. But if you ask most technologists, virtual reality is where the real action is.
Let’s take a look.
You Can Go Where You Want
Moving around in the real world is difficult. You have to submit to constant scans, impositions on your liberty, and arbitrary rules set by the power-mad.
But when you move your travel and exploration online, all that comes to an end. You can go where you want, when you want, how you want, without busybodies or grunts telling you what you can and can’t do. It’s like going back to the world of freedom a century ago. It’s a totally different experience from the dreadful misery we must endure today.
You Can Have More Experiences
At the same time, you can also have more experiences in virtual worlds, particularly if you invest in Metaverse gear. There are just so many things to potentially see and do: whatever the programmers come up with.
In the future, it might even be possible to code for real, living worlds. These would evolve according to their own trajectory, giving you something new every day. You wouldn’t feel as chained to your body as you do in the real world, allowing your life to expand in ways that you didn’t think were possible.
You Can Feel Happier No Matter What Your Circumstances
Many people around the world live in truly dire circumstances they would rather escape from. And that’s where virtual worlds can help. These provide a unique environment that is often healthier and more beautiful than real ones. They give people a chance to live the high life who are otherwise stuck in terrible situations that do not serve their well-being. Suffering is going on across the planet, particularly in places like China, but virtual worlds offer a potential solution.
You Can Earn Money
Earning money in virtual worlds was challenging in the past, but today, it’s becoming increasingly feasible. It’s something that anyone with an internet connection can do.
Just look at the success of Archeage and similar platforms that pay players who contribute to the community directly. These games now have a massive following and are helping poorer people around the world get themselves out of poverty. It’s a wonderful way to contribute to the game as a whole while also providing enough money for food and shelter.
As the ecosystem develops, such concepts are likely going to expand in use. More people are going to earn money on these platforms, encouraging the formation of a lucrative circular economy that benefits everyone, not just game developers.
You Can Entertain Yourself Endlessly
Lastly, people are choosing virtual worlds because of their ability to entertain them endlessly. Rather than constantly feeling bored in the real world, virtual worlds offer the possibility of genuine, happy entertainment that regular streaming services don’t offer. These make it possible to spend every waking hour in the game, without having to worry about a job, family life, or any of the regular trappings of life.
