Virtual reality is a very exciting piece of technology that is improving and getting better since it’s introduction.
Virtual Reality or for short, “VR”, is a headset that sits on your head or depending on which piece VR you own, you might hold it to your face. Trying VR for the first time can be scary because it’s a piece of technology you have never tried. But rest assured it’s perfectly safe for those who don’t suffer from motion sickness. Once you get past these hurdles it can be an amazing and exciting experience.
Once you start to get the hang of VR and start to understand it, it can become one of your favorite things to do on your free time. There are plenty of games that you can buy for the VR, From puzzle games, adventure games, and of course horror games; though I recommend to people who can handle horror games and movies because getting jump scared and throwing your controller at the TV isn’t the best thing to happen.
What is Virtual Reality?
For those who might be confused or simply don’t know what Virtual Reality is, VR is a technology that creates a simulated environment or world. It tracks your head movements and displays it within the simulated world, Creating the feeling that you are present within it. It’s really exciting stuff especially when you see for yourself and if you’re are thinking of buying a VR for yourself, there is the Oculus Rift and PSVR. The PSVR requires that you own a PS4, but other then that once you have it you are ready to set up you own VR.
My first time experiencing VR
My first time trying VR was when I purchased my own VR set which was the PlayStation VR. The game I played was “Deracine”, which was one of the best VR game experiences. The story was well written and game-play was fun. Once I got into the game I was captivated by the buildings and characters. It was so interesting to see the characters talk and move, and at times felt funny because they felt so real when they weren’t.
The second game I tried was a horror game called “The Persistence”. It involves you drifting through space on a space station that is getting swallowed by a black hole, and you have to escape but the ship is surrounded by crazy zombies. It was a very fun and scary game, especially in VR. if you think you can tackle this VR game I recommend it.
