Doesn't Skyrim VR qualify?

See, that's why I qualified "good".

I'm sorry to assume that you could consider it good =]

If I can ask,

Do you play video games on a regular display?  And if so, why would it hold you back from being able to experience VR?

My left eye is completely screwed up, nearly blind, meaning i can't use VR sets. And the right eye isn't too good either

Sorry to hear it.

Some of these things:

  • having space for it
  • better hardware
  • lower hardware prices
  • more interesting games

Having the space for VR is the dealbreaker at the moment though. I have about one meter between my desk and my bed if I move the chair elsewhere. Also, once I stand up to actually play, my monitor will be way too low for the whole thing to be ergonomic. I'm planning to get some VR stuff once I move to a new apartment, but this one's so cheap that it'll take a while before I want/need to move.



A Zelda game, if it's on par with other Zelda games in terms of exploration and gameplay.



- Price
- Wireless/Comfortable

And a VR version of a .hack game.

It was a simulated MMORPG where the characters were controlled by people wearing VR headsets.
So to have an actual MMORPG where you actually wear a VR headset is something I always wanted to see one day.

Price and/or enough compelling software to justify the price
Having a proper space for me to adequately enjoy VR gaming

I mean I did play it for like 100h and multiple runs, but that's only due to lack of alternatives. It has a terrible leveling system and the design of the world is more than drab. If I want to fully immerse myself in a VR world I'd like it to be prettier and more exciting than the real world.

I would play FF15 VR but that's basically just the Skyrim of Final Fantasy.

And an exclusive one at that, otherwise I'd just get it elsewhere. I'd be pretty pissed, but I'd just have to get a VR set if there's an exclusive Zelda game on it. Thank god there's no Zelda on Virtual Boy.

Or I could ram a red hot nail into my urethra.
