    I would consider myself an avid gamer. I have several consoles set up right now, dating back to the NES to the current get systems, and I could not care less about VR gaming. Am I old? Resistant to change?



    I just remember when I was a little kid(early to mid 90s) we already had VR and it was lame as hell. The graphics are obviously better now, but the idea is still the same, right? We're limited by space in the living room and the game will essentially be on rails, unless we end up with a hamster wheel type thing in the living room, which I have absolutely no interest in.

    It could be dope for certain specialty games I guess maybe...but I can't imagine playing for more than a few hours before you get tired of it. I wouldn't want to sit there with some **** onmy head for more than a Lil bit

    You are old and resistant to change. You know its true when I'm telling you that.

    I can't wait to try one... Okay I can wait because I just don't think they are worth the money. Yes I am sure they are a gimmick now, but part of the future of games and social networking will be in VR.

    I just look at VR gaming the same way I looked at 3D movies, TVs, and television shows during that craze a few years ago. We had that **** in the 80's. It was stupid then. It didn't get any better. A bunch of people got suckered into buying new 3DTVs. No broadcasters support it anymore.

    I am not a believer.

    i would love to play some skyrim/fallout type games in VR with the treadmill system and everything but they are wayyyy off from having those in homes right now. So I don't think anyone is very excited about it... yet.

    Imagine PT in a VR setup. Would be downright ****ing scary.

    I'm not completely sold on it but vr has improved hundred-fold since we were kids. I'd want to try it first but I'll look into it once it's released and what games are out

    That should be the #1 concern.

    We're going to get to the point in our lifetime that we will just be like the people in the movie Surrogates.

    We're a half step away from self-driving cars. Smartphones remember everything for us. The last thing we need is virtual sexy time.
