Check out "Ready, Player One."
For those that haven't read it,
Awesome sci-fi book based around retro video games.

Excellent story! I finished this afternoon and I really enjoyed this from front to back. I missed a few of the references (probably hundreds), but those I did catch were great.

Ready Player One was a lot of fun. I read it maybe a year after it came out, and along with the intentionally retro elements, the whole book felt like it came from an earlier time. The notion of the internet becoming a "virtual world" may have been a big part of it. As someone who explored Second Life and MMOs in the mid-aughts, the whole idea just has a "futures past" feel to it, like the cigar-shaped rockets and "homes of the future" of the mid-20th-century. It just seemed like a future someone would have imagined in the late '90s or early aughts.
Granted, it was more a wild flight of fantasy than anything genuinely speculative
