I just bought a bundle and it had a VR game in it. I have several other VR games gotten the same way…Included in a bundle. I activate them and go on with my life, as I don’t have VR. Maybe in the future but no plans at the moment.
I have Tabletop Simulator and VRChat for VR, but don’t have a rig. And while I would like a VR set, it won’t happen for a long while for 2 reasons:
It’s expensive as fuck where I live, since here average income is like a 5th of the average income of the rest of EU, while just about everything gaming related (PC, games, peripherals, consoles, etc.) has the exact same cost, if not slightly inflated
(a new game costs around 65 Euros in my country, as opposed to the rest of EU’s 60 Euros, which is already inflated compared to 60$)
Even if I did get a VR set my poor PC would probably explode from overheating if I tried to play anything demanding on it.
VR has a lot of potential but so far I haven’t seen enough of what I would call quality titles to even consider buying into it. Most of what I see that looks interesting can be played through my current setup.
don’t have vr, don’t want vr, so uninterested in vr i can’t describe it
maybe if the tech and experience moves better forward in the future, but right now i’m so unimpressed it deserves less than even to be a “fad”
-if VR died (again), i wouldn’t shed a tear
(and if it took 3d cinema with it, i might even bloody cheer, -i really hate that sh*t)
There are times when games become too real and are no longer fun. Games are supposed to be happy/cute, story filled, puzzles that are challenging and not tedious, edifying, artistic/pleasant to the eye, scary (but still separated by a screen). I do not want to see anything resembling humans holding a realistic looking gun pointing at me and firing, no matter how much I know it is in a game. I am sure I do not want to live in a real bullet hell. Perhaps my mind will change in the future, but certainly not now. I love my 2D platformers, artistic and mind-bending puzzlers, etc. For that reason, I am not even a big fan of FPS games.
If there will be a time when VR is a replication of my own body’s activities when I am still alive, I think that might be cool. To see, breathe, wiggle my fingers and toes and to be completely immersed, that may be a good experience. I do not know when that will ever get there. So while I look forward to the future, I will continue to play games of the past, ie, Mario, Sonic, PacMan, Zelda, and retro-looking newer games.
I’m with you on that, but I do think it has its place for racing and flying simulators for sure; it is awesome for that right now, anything where y’r basically strapped to a seat ingame already anyways
@Gnuffi, can I ask you something? Have you actually tried one of the top end headsets like a Vive or a Rift and come to your conclusions or are they based on info you’ve seen and experience you’ve had with the likes of the 3D movies etc? Genuinely curious
but i’m not gonna fork out twice as much to get a slightly “better” experience just to get more “optimal” feel, (for something that i already consider flawed on many points just as is)
PS VR might not be “vive pro” lvls of “amazing” experience, but i doubt such “upgrade” would be anywhere near enough to even begin consider purchasing for me
hell even if they cut the price in half i’d still likely not even consider it enjoyable enough to consider getting the vive for myself
(and the 3d cinema mention was merely to throw my disdain for that in, as that’s a “fad” even more worthy of industry-wide death imo )
