Archeology of virtual worlds

’m driving recklessly. The city unfolds as I whip past shops, offices, and other cars. All of a sudden, I see a heavy truck rushing towards me at top speed. I realize that I’m driving on the wrong side of the road. I immediately swerve to dodge the menacing lorry, and lose control of my hot pink sports car. The vehicle careens onto the sidewalk ploughing into a group of mindless pedestrians. A tiny star appears at the top-right corner of my screen. Here come the police, here I go again. A police chase is about to ensue. Nothing to worry about. It’s just another day in Los Santos, the fictional setting of Grand Theft Auto Online.
