Basically, the above Wikipedia Article is what I'm talking about in this topic. For example, the promotional material for the video game Halo and the TV show Lost. Are there any games of this sort in Second Life? Games where the organizers pretend it's a real thing happening in the real world?

Isn't that kind of what Second Life is?

I think what Gopi had in mind was more like Surrogates with Bruce Willis. Which, when you think about it, we (humans) are well on our way to a surrogate society with cell phones and all kinds of portable devices. Not a very comforting thought for us pack types. Physical contact (being touched) is very important.

More like we are becoming our own zombie apocalypse with everyone looking at their cell phones more than who or what is around them.

You start in SL and make it into RL - that's easy but only the 1st step - more difficult is the 2nd step from RL to the Real World¬†ūüėé

Is that when you avatar logs into their facebook account through media on a prim to start playing real life?

Every Hallowe'en, Pulse Games organizes something like that -- something like that --  and it's always cool.  There is a framework, puppetmasters are clearly in control, but you show up and just by being yourself you walk around and seek clues (and rewards and prizes), and there is collaboration among players as they try to determine the nature of this or that puzzle in order to solve it.  Geared towards "hive mind" rather than zombie-mind.  The game feels like real and now reality.  It's a horror story.  (It's Hallowe'en.)  There is probably not the "white space" left for players to fill in so much as in that wiki description; however, the look and feel of a person's participation in this interactive horror experience is something like that ARG description.  That's the only SL experience/game that comes to mind.
