Well, Taika Watiti imagined it and went ahead to make a film about it called Free Guy, the trailer of which is a freaking blast.


According to the trailer’s description, as provided by 20th Century Fox: 

Reynolds is a bank teller who discovers he is actually a background player in an open-world video game, decides to become the hero of his own story…one he rewrites himself. Now in a world where there are no limits, he is determined to be the guy who saves his world his way…before it is too late.
