This category has to do with immersive, graphical, persistent state environment, non-combat virtual worlds -- like a WideOpenSandbox {{MMORPG}} that is ''all'' sandbox, no game. These worlds could someday become TheMetaverse - in fact, some might argue that they already have.

For in-universe virtual worlds, see LotusEaterMachine, {{Cyberspace}} and InsideAComputerSystem.
