Are virtual worlds real or fake? Are you "traveling" to new worlds even if you don't leave your couch? Exploring video game worlds can be as appealing as following the plot, but when we wander around Los Santos in GTA5, is it the same as hopping on a plane and visiting somewhere in the "real" world?
