I wouldn't mind a cool gimmick if it wasn't so expensive.

The problem is not the price, the problem is that they try and make it mandatory, changing games to suite it. RE7 was made FPS just so you could experience™ it in VR. If it just stayed some fringe gimmick like the rest of them it wouldn't be an issue.

tried VR it was ok for flight sim I tried

even then it's overpriced too much and some genres I imagine won't work so well with it such as RTS. I can see turn based working though like some fire emblem clone where you touch your character and move them like a chess piece.

If you did more research you'd have noticed they've tried this for absolutely fucking ever. It has failed every time. This isn't something new.


A lot of games recently have started patching it out, yet for every game that patches it out some other tard falls for the VR meme and wonders why their game fails.

The problem with VR is not the price. It's the same problem wii-like controls had.

No one wants to look like a fuckwit, waving their arms around like a retard.

Not to mention with VR you are willingly blinding yourself. Something that your brain does not want to happen. What if a predator sneaks up on etc etc.

Plus, you can't look away to see who's at the door.

As for the video, notice how all these cool VR experiences all come from demos and presentations, or just from fucking around. Sure, it's cool to pop the glasses on and fall from a skyscraper for 5 minutes or something. But that's about it. It's not something that can be incorporated into a normal game without changing it to adhere specifically to VR, turning the game into a VR demo again. It will always be a gimmick.

gotta find the right genre, yaknow? then you gotta narrow it down to the right sub-genre. then the specific scene type.

then after you narrow it down to 20-30 scenes, then you have to watch those scenes and narrow it down.

and thats if your sub-genre/scene preference doesnt change during any of that forcing you to start over.

cmon, you know the drill.


maybe watch the whole video? you kind of just recited the point of the entire video.

but despite all of VRs shortcomings, theres still something about being "in" the game thats appealing…

i personally cant see it ever replacing video games. the same way videogames cant replace hunting/shooting/camping.

but that doesnt mean it isnt worth the endeavor.

For VR to actually be a thing, you'll need some sort of Accel World technology or just an advanced enough suit that would do things like hardening part of the suit to emulate holding something or just molesting your waifu also making the suit warmer to emulate certain things like the suit warming your head to emulate waifu peeing on you


Imagine doing anything from a videogame irl… for example playing Tekken or a FPS but in public against well… nothing… VR seems less an innovation and more a public humiliation console.

The doom vid was pretty shit. While it wasn't wrong in the things it showed, nu-doom still sucked but for different reasons. Mainly because it's literally just mindless shooting and forced melee finishers.

The important ammunition management from older games is completely gone for example.

VR is shit. A real man enjoys his video game on a PC, without having to delude himself with the altered states of reality. VR is for weak subhumans who should be genocided by the pro gamer Ubermensch.

The advancement from static images, flappy mouths and then fully animated was neat. Going full 3D world could be nice if done well.


One thing VR needs to fix is full body simulation instead of just the hands and vision. Floating disembodied hands kind of ruin the immersion.

There are some games that use inverse kinematics to "guess" where the rest of the body is and show it in-game, but I would say that's less immersive. Often times, the arms don't follow yours, or they're always bent at a weird angle.

Don't know why they seems to have gone with Star Wars visuals but neet.

VR UaB in my lifetime, that's the dream.

> Star Wars visuals

right now VR devs need to focus on whats fun and what works. if cutting things that come at you with a sword like in the video is actually fun, theres alot you can do with it.

a baseball game focused on batting is similar.

devs need to figure out that stuff before attempting to make a game, otherwise you just end up with a ~$5 minigame.

e25740 No.48766


True enough I guess, just seems out of place to me.

a89c57 No.48767


i agree. i think they did it because its easy. they wanted cutting to be a factor, but cutting implies the sword has an edge, but the "blade" the player holds has no sharp end, theyre all sharp ends, so the devs went with lightsabers… then matched everything else to it.

the game made me instantly think of a star wars themed fruit ninja.

You kids should pick up a book and then show me how there isn't spacing between paragraphs.

As an aside, and therefore another triggering paragraph, this is a change in tact, and therefore a new parargraph.

I'm surprised that anons hate vr as much as this thread suggests, it's niche, has a high cost barrier of entry to keep most normalfags out, and it allows for new experiences where indies have a better chance to thrive since it isn't saturated with AAA bullshit, though it isn't completely clean from it either.

I realize everything is shit in the eyes of anons but saying it's the same as tech made in the 90s/early 2000s or even the wii is fucking retarded.

VR the concept I like. VR the reality is a wasteland of gimmicky games and jewish companies buying out all the talent. It is/was just the same as when they pushed 3D a while back.

Though i do agree comparing it to the 90s or the wii is unfair

ea4407 No.50639


From what I can see it's a matter of finding diamonds in the rough, alot of the games made for vr are made on shoestring budgets at best so marketing tends to fall by the wayside and genuinely fun games can be glossed over.

I'll admit i'm more excited for where VR can go rather than where it is right now though. It still hasn't hit it's stride.

As if.

If you have a half-decent smartphone, you can get an okay-tier vr viewer for $5-$20, and get an app called Riftcat that lets your phone emulate an HTC vive.

If you want Roomscale and full motion tracking controllers, you can get a Windows Mixed Reality headset for $200-$300 on Amazon.
