I think VR is going to be interesting to put competitive games in there.
While that would be an incredibly interesting thing to see, I don't see a future for VR in a competitive sense. Setup/broadcast might cause some problems, and general interest in the platform at a competitive level will be a hindrance. Time will tell, however.
You know what you're getting, but that's the problem--it's not anything incredible. If you DO want something incredible, you usually have to hunt around local places/local chains to find something really good.
I'm particularly picky when it comes to games, as I typically prefer games with really good stories and interesting characters. With these games, I enjoy actively immersing myself in a game's narrative if I find the writing compelling. I like to feel personally invested and, if possible, take an active stance in influencing the outcome of a game's narrative.
So, do you see gaming as a way to totally break with reality? It sounds like you really like to get into your games, given the elements you cited. I enjoy games like that, as well, but I've had to come to grips with the fact that, in my life, there are not many times when I can crawl into a game and let time melt away around me like I could when I was younger.
I'd go with passing trend, IMO tech is not quite there yet to make it cheap and quality enough.
So, you think this will end up like the VR of the mid/late '90s? I don't know if I agree. Sure, things like the Oculus is $600 right now, but I don't think that companies that have started down this road will give up on development anytime soon (Oculus is owned by Facebook, so I'm certain that they will continue to dump money into it).
Then again, playing/moving in VR still looks goofy as hell, so who knows?
no not those kind of games....other hog games that are like Mirror's of Albion on facebook but have you build a town like in the Castle game, stuff similar to that...it's like Criminal Case on fb only with upgrade able parts of the building...
