What Makes a Story Immersive?
Hacker Noon: Immersiveness depends on how well someone tells the story through the medium they are working in. The #1 thing to create an immersive story is connection to the main character. A skilled author can make a traditional novel more immersive than a film. VR has a huge setting advantage, i.e. it almost takes over the whole setting. Do I think we're living in a simulation? That’s a tough one, but I think no because the alternative would make reality too grim for me to get out of bed in the morning.
