Yes, I have an Oculus Rift.  Yes, I find the experience amazingly immersive.  VR Sports Challenge and Wilson's Heart (completed) are my favorite games at the moment.  Wilson's Heart is extremely atmospheric and literally made me feel like I was inside an old Twilight Zone episode or Universal monster movie (the good ones).

I want to wait until pretty much every kind of game can be played in VR without compromises to the title in question.

You’re going to wait a long time then. VR requires a considerable extra amount of work.

Sounds like something that's holding back gaming then. 



Over the last couple of years I've shifted from the 'no, not interested' group to the 'no, but I'm considering it' group.

I'm waiting for two things mostly: 1) more must-have games that interest me, and 2) much lower price.

I've got a mild curiosity to experience VR, and already own a couple of normal games with well-reviewed VR modes (WipEout and GT Sport), but I'm more than happy to wait, possibly even for a new gen of tech.

I have no interest in gen 1 VR. Maybe by gen 3 it will be advanced enough to interest me.

How much experience do you have? I’m always sad to read something like this, considering PSVR has already delivered some of the best gaming experiences I’ve had in my 36 years of gaming...and it’s only going to get better.

I tried it out many times. I liked Rez and SuperHot but for the rest.. It's just not there yet. And by that I mean VR as a whole, by which I count PSVR at the bottom since it was imo inferior to what I tried out with the Vive and the Rift.

My stance is that VR is no good until Nintendo does it.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Got Oculus Rift, Oculus Go and PSVR. I love every one of them. Sadly, I don't have too much time to play with them right now. But VR is still awesome. My favourite right now is Euro Truck Simulator 2 with a steering wheel in VR. I also had a great time in Skyrim VR! I also love to watch movies when I'm in bed in Oculus Cinema. It's hard to beat that, feels just like you're in a cinema if you don't mind the low resolution. But the latter was never a problem for me.

Quit the flaming. It’s actually quite the opposite..it’s the first legit step forward in gaming since vector graphics introduced the third dimension. Many publishers and developers are hesitant because it requires a considerable amount of work for them...they basically need to learn everything from zero again, because the old rules don’t apply anymore...plus the market is still very small and hard to advertise, which makes it risky from a business perspective. 

Luckily adoption rate (game sales per headset sold) are extraordinarily high...I've never bought as much software as I did for my PSVR...so more and more developers are warming up to it.

I never understood your kind of attitude...as if VR would steal something from you, your hobby, your traditional way of gaming, when in reality it just adds another exciting prospect, the idea to finally BE in the game world or character instead of just watching it happen in front of your eyes.

Try Wipeout, Firewall or Astro Bot...some of the best and best looking games on all VR platforms.

Obviously a 2000 dollar PC can deliver more detailed graphics, but just as with normal consoles that’s not what makes the games. 

Ultrawings looks like a remastered N64 game but still manages to make you feel as free you were legitimately flying!



I have a PSVR, though I haven't played it much yet, as it makes nauseous after 20 minutes or so. The motion is too much. Also freaks me out when my cat rubs against my legs when I'm in a spooky dungeon.

From what I played though, it was really good. Skyrim VR lets me finally slay dragons as a magic shota like I've always wanted.

...Quit the flaming? Really? 

It sounds like you're interpreting too much into it. I really don't think VR is holding gaming back as a whole. That's not what I meant. That wouldn't even make sense because all the money for software is going into non VR-projects right now. I'm just saying that it sounds like the limitations of VR are holding the games in that market back. I get the 2nd comment was written poorly, but you really don't need to take such a leap in logic. My first post explains it beautifully because it's so simple: I will adopt a VR headset when almost everything a traditional game can accomplish can be accomplished in VR. As of now, the exclusive experiences you can have in VR do not outweigh the cons for me. I'm sorry that's just how I feel.
