Well, technically I've been using VR since the Gear VR and now the Oculus Go. But that's just for porn. To actually game on VR I will need a great game first. A good open world RPG.

Also I'll need much better hardware. The current offerings are just pitiful. I need a headset that would actually fully utilize a 3080ti. And all of that preferably wireless.

Doesn't Skyrim VR qualify?

@DonFerrari you just reminded me that I don't have Skyrim VR! Gonna watch some reviews and probably buy it today.

For me, it is pricing and software. There would probably need to be 10+ really good games before I would even consider buying a headset.

Mission accomplished. I know it is hard to think of VR titles that really make you want to play it.

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?

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



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Literally nothing.

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
