Growing up, my favorite book to reread over and over again was Ready Player One. I loved that the video games in the book depicted the games I played myself! But now, the movie may be my new favorite thing.
Ready Player One sold out whole movie theaters when it was first released, and it's understandable why. The themes of perseverance, courage in the face of enemies, and doing the impossible are all things present in both the book and movie. There are not many scenes involving violence either, so you can take your whole family to this blockbuster!
While the plot is set in the future, the games and how to play are older
SPOILER This style of video game is the last challenge of Ready Player One
