Spartan Life seems likely. The hosts would try to take the interviewee to a "safe" zone of the world. Interviews we frequently interrupted by taking out marauding players or having to reboot if the hosts or interviewee was taken out instead. It was a mix of hilarious context and thought-provoking questions (ISTR). Only saw it a few times, but it stuck with me. Joseph DeLappe's staging of episodes of "Friends" inside Halo (or whatever FPS/RPG it was) is another example of the concept.

hi hive mind,

can anyone out there remember a project, i guess about 10 years ago or manybe more, where artists were interviewed inside an online shooter game? maybe some of you were interviewed? i know i watched at least one & i'm pretty sure it was someone like annie who was being interviewed (i have a terrible memory, i know ... )

i met an artist who has a performance project in a multiplayer game (http://www.leonhardmuellner.at/operation-janewalk/) & it reminded me of that project & i was telling him about it but couldn't remember the name of the project or who made it ... ??
