I tried virtual reality for the first time recently and was blown away. I thought it would feel like having a screen attached to my head, but I actually felt like I was in a new 3D world. I tried the HTC Vive for a couple hours as someone I know bought one. 

What do you all think of VR? 

Here is a video of me trying out some Beat Saber. Excuse the quality of the video it was taken on my phone and was not meant to be uploaded to YouTube when it was originally recorded.

Pavlov VR? Is it available on Steam? I'd buy my own HTC Vive, but it is quite expensive.

VR is a great immersive experience.
Even watching 3D movies on the cinema mode on PSVR is a much better experience than watching on TV.

Try Ace Combat 7, Astrobot and RE7 on VR they are all great.

Yes. It's on Steam. One of the most played VR multiplayer games. Lot's of community support and custom maps through steam workshop. Also additional game modes through that. It's the game that comes CS:GO the closest if that would be in VR. They also ported most CS:GO maps to that game. Looks really stunning to walk through Dust2 and see everything in real size.

Started my VR adventure with PSVR, and have since bought into VR on Windows as well. Considering getting a Valve Index next year to upgrade for Half Life Alyx, and will be there day one for PSVR 2 when/if it happens.

VR is easily the best thing that has happened to games this generation. As great as stuff like Super Mario Odyssey, God of War, or Sunset Overdrive have been, they are still just natural steps forward along the same path we have been walking since PS1/N64. VR is delivering the first real new experiences since the mid 90's when those machines introduced us to 3D games.

Whether it is introducing new ways to play like Beat Saber, delivering scale and immersion to a classic like Skyrim, or fully realizing a simulation like Gran Turismo Sport, VR is taking gaming to new heights. It will only get better from here on out.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

I've played PSVR.

It is quite interesting. Astro bot is quite fun.
Thought I would get sick because I have a lot of motion sickness - but I did not.

There is an ocean demo where you are underwater now that was pretty freaky. Looking down and just seeing more water instead of a floor is kinda creepy.

  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Bought the PSVR a few years ago after its first big drop in price and during Black Friday deals. Played it quite a bit and would buy a lot of games for it when they were on sale. The bundle came with Skyrim and that was the first game I started, was blown away but did not continue with it beyond the first few hours. Resident Evil 7 was an incredible experience and the gold standard for me. Enjoyed a lot of the early games like Rush of Blood, Batman Arkam VR, and Thumper. Thumper is cray fun in VR. Forced my way through Here They Lie, not because I didn't enjoy it, I thought it was an awesome atmosphere but it made me sick so I had to play no more than an hour at a time with it. I love a good scary movie, and I couldn't get through Paranormal Activity, that game freaks me out its too scary. I should really give it another shot. I really haven't touched it much over the last year or so, if someone visiting my house like my niece wants to play it, it will get used. The technology isn't quite there, but I am looking forward to seeing what the P5 does for VR.  The shark demo is the best way to introduce people to VR, loved watching my nieces and sister play that in amazement, and my brother who thought it wouldn't be a big deal, knocks over the water on a table that really wasn't all that close to where he started, because the shark had scared him!

I'll have to pick it up for my friend who owns the HTC Vive once I see it on sale. He only has a handful of VR games.

You should update the poll and title to proper VR with 6 degree's of freedom or ad options for, mobile 3 degrees of freedom, 6 degrees of freedom fixed and 6 degrees of freedom full room scale. There is such a jump in quality and experience between them they should not be lumped together. I've often gotten answers from people who say they've tried VR but it was on a phone, that is laughable compared to 6 degrees of freedom and even 6 degrees of freedom is kinda pathetic compared to full room scale but to a lesser degree.

My knowledge of VR is limited. I know there is a difference in quality, but not what they are. What should I put as the different options?
