Alessandra Hi, this list wasn't what I expected, so I started a new list on nonfiction about living / playing in vr and video games:

Ooh! Excellent. I will definitely vote on your list, as I have some rather titillating titles on my to-read list about video games and psychology. :D

Ooh, thank you! That's exactly the sort of book I was thinking about.

Thanks! I'm glad you found it helpful. I love videogame-themed cyberpunk too. :D


message 6: by Doug (new)

Doug Another one for you and also a "classic" of the genre as it was published in 1996 https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...


message 7: by Hossain (new)

Hossain Should Robopocalypse be in this list? it does not have anything related to video games or virtual reality, at least i don't remember.


message 8: by Doug (new)

Doug The AI in Robopocalypse was born in a Virtual Machine maybe.


message 9: by Fredrick (new)

Fredrick Parton I am trying to remember a book on Virtual Reality in the late 80's. It involved a fencing instructor who was also a co-creater of a virtual reality world. He has quit because of it being mishanled. Later the world he created "rebelled"? There was also a seuell to it which involved a parralell universe connection. Any clues on to the name and author of this book?


message 10: by Ben (new)

Ben theres a good virtual reality video game book called Phantom server which should totally be on this list its also a really good book


message 11: by Terrence (new)

Terrence Added a few of the many Japanese fiction light novels focused on getting trapped in virtual reality games. There's also a few where characters work on games (New Game for instance).


message 12: by draxtor (new)
