Opinion: Why I’m Excited About the Metaverse


Hey readers! It’s me, ᵃ ˡᵒᶜᵃˡ ʳᵉᵍᶦˢᵗᵉʳᵉᵈ ˢᵉˣ ᵒᶠᶠᵉⁿᵈᵉʳ, and I’m here to tell you why I’m SO EXCITED about the Metaverse and all the possibilities this unexplored new frontier has to offer. A lot of us have been waiting for virtual reality to take hold for a while. Like, I mean for a really, really long time. That’s why I’m so excited for a new place to hang out in that only requires you to have a Meta Quest brought to you by Facebook! Really! That’s all you need! You don’t have to give up any personal information to sign up.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve grown bored of your stupid old neighborhood. I mean, there’s only so many places you can truly go, am I right? This world, while beautiful in its own way, has limitations. Places you can and cannot go, for VARIOUS REASONS, and the Metaverse is here to return us all back to square one. Your only limit is your imagination in the Metaverse. You want to drive a Porsche through the European countryside? Fight alongside the Avengers? Go inside a Burger King again? ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!

Now, there has been a predictable chorus of cynics and naysayers, saying things like, “Nobody asked for this,” and “This doesn’t even look that good,” and “We shouldn’t create safe havens for those who have proven to be criminally sexual deviants.” A lot of people have been saying this, frankly. 

Another thing that is super exciting about the Metaverse is you can customize your avatar! Don’t like your eyes? Your hair? Your age? Your resemblance to the fella in the poster up at the Burger King? You’re in the driver’s seat! Change your eyes, cut that hair, remove the stab wounds from your face! 

What excited me about the Metaverse the most (besides the gorgeous graphics) when I first heard about it was that I realized I’d finally get to be in control. When we enter this new digital frontier, we can pick what baggage we take or leave behind. A fresh start. The ability to put the best version of yourself forward. Isn’t that great? ᴬˡˢᵒ ᴵ ᵃᵐ ᵃ ʳᵃᵖᶦˢᵗ. See ya in the ‘Verse, dudes!
