What would MMORPGs (like World of Warcraft, FFXIV, etc.) look like in this universe? If I’m reading the TL right, the golden age of MMORPGs (roughly late 1990s - early 2010s) should be right in the middle of detente part 2. In this universe, they may be one of the first places where people from both blocs personally interact with each other as opposed to just hearing about each other in the news or propaganda. The relatively apolitical nature of the games would help here (most MMORPGs are set in medieval fantasy worlds, where “current politics”, so to speak, would be less relevant).
