The game of life

Fundamental questions about our reality are, by their very nature, unanswerable.  Sometimes a random conversation triggers an unexpected train of thought, which leads to surprising insights. Someone asked me if I thought that everyone around us, in our reality, was actually real. As some of you may know, it has often been a suspicion of mine that some people are not.
After all we are at base nothing more than beings of light, holograms really, with only our consciousness making us human. Anything is possible.
Anyway, my answer was that I have always thought of our reality as an interactive video game. In our game some people are “real” and players and some are just cast members, part of the makeup of the game. All of our realities intertwine. We may be cast members in other’s reality.
What do you think? Also, how can we tell?
