As I sit here and write this, I’ve yet to see the latest episode of The World According to Jeff Goldblum, because the country I’m visiting doesn’t have Disney+ yet. So we’re going to take a shortcut and use the official synopsis for this entry (at least until I can properly update it).
“Jeff Goldblum plugs in to the world of gaming as he discovers that video games are far more than a mindless past time. From the high-octane world of e-sports to game-design sound engineering and Live Action Role Roleplay (LARP), Jeff witnesses how gaming can be a vehicle for empathy, cooperation and confidence building, which has an impact far beyond the virtual sphere.”
With Jeff exploring digital worlds, we thought it would be fun to take a look at some of our favorite “Disney” games and Virtual Reality experiences.
