Well, If I have bought it but still in its box, how do I fit into this thread?

A patient man. In fact, I'd call you the Inpatient. Slap it on your face, ya nut. :D

Hahaha, add to this, the fact that I got Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 yesterday... Laziness is strong in this one (pointing to myself), since the only thing that separates me from trying that on VR is connecting all the stuff

Not interested right now, waiting for much better Tech. Maybe I will have a try in the mid 2020s.

If everyone waits, we may never get the chance to get better tech :(

-Android user, please be gentle with critique on my spelling.

Well, what's pretty cool about that poll is 50 percent are at least interested and more than half of those interested are planning a purchase. Not bad at all considering how difficult it is to market this stuff. This seems like a LOT more in favour of VR than my threads in 2015 in which had little interest at all and mostly disgust or hate.

Not interested and won't ever be interested.

I'll save that post for later. Kind of an ignorant comment.

Can bears drift in VR? Apparently not. Seriously though, why?

Because I don't want something strapped to my head. I want to be able to see my controller. I want to be able to see my TV remote and easily change settings. I like to multitask and do other things while gaming. And of course the kinds of games I like (3rd person turn based RPGs, sports games (playing as whole team), strategy games and text sims) would undoubtedly be made worse with vr.

Most of those points are addressed by newer headsets with stereo cameras. One can see the controllers in some PSVR games. In others it's simply immersion breaking and not benefitial. I think you're just fishing or excuses.

If you don't like the games, ok..might be possible..although it sounds as if you haven't even tried any yet.

Do you call everybody that doesn't like something "ignorant"?

No, but it's kind of ignorant to assume you will never like it, which I can already promise you won't become true and sounds as ignorant as if some guy in the 30ies said he'd never watch television, because he doesn't like it.

It's not hard to know whether you'd like something or not. I know that I wouldn't like driving a car, so I never have and never will drive one. And I also know I wouldn't like vr.

Wow...ok...I.... guess I'm done with arguing.

But no..knowing if one would like VR without having tried it is simply impossible.

That said, I would probably avoid driving a car as well if would have to drive on the wrong side of the road *ugly*
