I have the seed of a story idea from a post in my linked-in account.
Right now the stereotype for gamers, at least in my head, is that they are smart, couch potatoes. (I’m not getting into if that is accurate or not)
What if this new technology changed that stereotype? What if gamers became elite athletes?
Farther down in the comments they mentioned a neural interface company. That company is working on integrating so that the VR is driven fully by the brain. So now we have people who could just use their minds to play the games.
It’s just a seed at this point.
What if there was a world with both and they were in conflict or competing for some reason?
What would be their pluses and minuses for the way they access the game? Would one have to be constantly on the move because of how much there physical body needed? Did they have to eat special things? Was a risk of the other atrophied bodies? Did they have lairs with guards?
What would happen if two of them had to switch modes?
