Shakespearian Theatre in Fallout 76

As I’ve mentioned previously, I am not a gamer. I play games, but I am not a gamer. I am especially not a multiplayer gamer and have never played any MMO for more than half an hour. That said, I find it fascinating what happens in those games! As The Guardian reports:

One crisp spring evening, the Wasteland Theatre Company gathered to rehearse Romeo and Juliet. Jonathan “Bram” Thomas was playing Romeo (…) The Wasteland Theatre Company is not your average band of thespians. Dotted all across the world, they meet behind their keyboards to perform inside Fallout 76

Yes, Fallout 76 is now a place to enjoy Shakespearian theatre.

Another example would be the Corrupted Blood Incident:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) contacted Blizzard after the incident, asking if they could use data from what they perceived as a planned disease simulation to inform their disease modeling research.

Games were always closely related to reality, but sometimes the interaction between them becomes simply fascinating. And, as always, the gamers make the games - not the creators.

No matter where you go, everyone’s connected, as Scary Lain said.
