The best book for video gamers I've ever read.
If you are into video games and/or into retro, you CAN NOT miss this one.
Movie's coming out early this year ( Steven Spielberg )

Book:
https://www.amazon.com/Ready-Player-One-Ernest-Cline/dp/0307887448

Trailer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSp1dM2Vj48

I just hope the movie is gonna be even remotely as good as the book. Damn.

As a child of the 80s I loved this book. There are hundreds if not thousands of cultural references to an amazing decade.
I even discovered some games that passed me by and had to research.

Hey it takes place in my home town, columbus!

I saw a trailer for this awhile back, and it didn't really impress me. It's hardly an original concept.
