IN THE FUTURE THERE IS ONLY
Does a virtual experience ever manage to capture the essence of a real physical experience? There certainly have been a multitude of computer and video game recreations of classic board games over the years. Some have been quite faithful transitions, whilst for others, the reimagining can be quite a diversion from the origin.
Games like Monopoly and Chess have, for the most part, been relative simple electronic versions of their classic board games. Sure, there may have been little touches added to the experience, such as animated pieces, but the end result is that you no longer have to find somewhere to store that large box and all those little parts, and the solo player can now compete against AI opponents.
