Ready Player One is set in 2045 when most people spend a lot of time in a virtual reality world called OASIS. When the creator of OASIS died, he announced a game through his avatar, that involves finding a Golden Easter Egg locked in a gate that requires 3 keys. The winner of the game would become the owner of OASIS. Among the virtual participants there are Parzival, a teenager who lives in the slums of Columbus, Ohio, and Art3mis. Another person interested in owning OASIS is Nolan Sorrento, the CEO of a big corporation. In this scene Parzival and Art3mis are on a date at a virtual nightclub where Parzival makes the mistake of revealing his real name to Art3mis. They are immediately ambushed by Sorrento’s virtual soldiers that try to eliminate the gold seeking avatars. Parzival and Art3mis manage to get away and here she confronts Parzival, that she calls “Z”.

Art3mis: “This isn’t a game, Z. I’m doing this to stop IOI. I’m talking about real-world consequences. People suffering. Actual life-and-death stuff. No, you don’t know! My dad in a loyalty center. He borrowed gear. He built debt. He moved in with the promise of working it off, but he never did. IOI just raised his living expenses, then he got sick and he couldn’t afford to get out. And then he died! No, you don’t live in the real world, Z. From what you have told me I don’t think you ever have. You live inside this...illusion, and I can’t afford to let you distract me.”
