Maybe it's just me, but when I read the book, I couldn't help but feel it was less about the VR world being created and more about waxing nostalgic about the childhood media of the author.

It felt like the dystopian setting was less about creating a unique culture as it was creating a platform for gushing about Atari-era video games and other cultural media someone who grew up in the early 80's would remember, but probably won't be on the tips of everyone's tongues by then.
