There are unsurprisingly a huge amount of Ready Player One Easter eggs to be found in Steven Spielberg's adventure movie. Based on the book of the same name, the film follows the adventures of pop-culture obsessed protagonist Wade Watts (whose “Gamertag” is Parzival) as he escapes into a pop-culture obsessed virtual world named Oasis.
