Would people opt to live in a virtual world?
With the advancement of modern technology comes VR or Virtual Reality and AR or Augmented Reality which when combined could create a VW or Virtual World. A good example would be the films, The Matrix and Ready Player One. In the future do you think people would choose to live in a Virtual World?


I can totally see people living in a Virtual World. It offers people so much advantages and so much opportunities. Imagine that you can ride a virtual dragon which feels like it is real! Or imagine yourself flying in a Virtual World. That would be great. VR is still in beta phase, as I like to call it. But in a few years, I think it will be more worldwide spread than it is today and more affordable for everyone.

Well, it's really fun and we would all want to experience it. But, nothing beats the slap of reality. Hahaha

Maybe. If the interaction in the virtual world will be somehow comparable to having someone physically with you, it might be possible in the future. I know a few people who don't go outside that much, and their fix for human interactions is all via online. There are also long-distance relationships out there that stand the test of time by only having video calls with one another.

Yes. I would like to try the things we could not do in the real world. I would like to feel what it is like to fly while looking down on earth. There are indeed much possibilities in the virtual world, it would be so much fun especially for those who seek adventures.

Would people live in the virtual world? This is a hard thing to answer but in my own opinion, this is quite impossible. Living in the virtual world is so fictional and it is really impossible unless a country in the world would agree in it. There are a lot of things to factor out for this to truly happen and also there are fictional movies or books that are written years ago that in 2018 we would have flying cars but it didn't happen.

The real world is more complicated than the fictional one because we have politics.

In my opinion and to what I see to the world nowadays, would people live in the virtual world? I don't think so. I know that technology today is already on its high peek but I still believe that greater number of people prefer not live and not to depend on technologies, therefore virtual world is far from the reality to most people nowadays.

It is not possible. It is better if we stick to reality and talk about things which have a possibility of happening. Real world events are more fruitful and joyful for me. VR advancement in technology is a good sign but no way near of making it a reality

Yes. Maybe some of them want live in Virtual world because they thought they have a control over the things. But in truth they are just fooling their selves. But it's to reality in life rather than run away from it, right?

No. Well, I must say that people would want to try something different. Thus, they would prefer living in a virtual reality for like a short time. But, nothing beats reality. Still people would choose the real world after experiencing the virtual world.

I agree. Even if it's a mess up world it's still enjoyable to live in it. The best we could do in living to reality is to accept and try be positive no matter how hard our life is.

People would certainly opt to live in a virtual world. For one thing, virtual worlds gives people more confidence as they can control most of the things there. However, reality will still be here and no one can escape it.

I imagine it as moving our consciousness into the virtual world where it looks the same as reality but everything's perfect and peaceful much like The Sims but for real, we can sign out whenever we want to and come back to reality. I'M DEFINITELY IN! kind of creepy... but cool.

Maybe some would want to live in a virtual world because for them it's a lot more better since they can control what they want. They can make another identity of who they want to be. They want to escape from reality, from the violence they have encounter from reality.

I believe that the answer to that question is already answered, as people live in virtual worlds today! Look at World of Warcraft, people have been playing that for more than 14 years!!! And what are social media accounts than virtual worlds! We all live in them every single day!

I feel like a lot of us are already living in a virtual world. It might not be as literal as always wearing a virtual reality headset or plugging yourself into some sort of matrix, but I’d say a good portion of the population is already living in an imaginary land simply due to our addiction to the internet. So many people—myself included—spend hours upon hours, day after day with their faces glued to their computer or smartphone screens. It’s gotten to the point where I feel more comfortable on the internet than I do in the real world. At this point, I might as well be wearing a virtual reality headset 24/7. Honestly, I think we’re going to need them too, because at the rate that we’re currently going, the world isn’t even going to be worth going out into. A dystopian future is a very real possibility.

I can say that a lot of people today are already living there. There are some people who choose to live in a virtual world than living in a physical real world. Those people are those who spend most of their time online. They have a lot of friends online but very few friends in reality. A lot of people today don't interact anymore with the physical world. They just want to spend their time browsing through the internet or playing online games.

I think with the rise of games, people are already living in the virtual world. I've met a lot who prefer living in their games compared to living their real life. We can't really blame them since real life isn't going the way they want. Sometimes it's due to circumstances they have no control over currently. As for me, I'm happy in the real world. I wouldn't want to live in a virtual world, I see no fun in that.

I would say that it's highly probable that a virtual world will soon be created and when it's perfected, it would be like the real world and people would live in it because it would be a cheaper alternative to living in the real world.
