Those Ready Player One posters would be fun if literally anyone on the planet were excited for that movie.

...Realisation: There are almost certainly people who are completely unironically super excited for Ready Player One.

Which isn't to, like, dig on people who are excited for that movie, I'm not stopping you and wouldn't want to, you do you, Ready Player One just seems like really schlocky, pandering, name-the-thing-nostalgic trash to me.

@Daily In the book, it's treated with some humor and awareness, i.e. most people are just not that into obscure retro-gaming facts and that's why the main character succeeds at the quest.
