    Just realized no one has made one of these threads yet. Anyone here using VR yet?

    I have an Oculus Rift, since the Vive was basically twice the price when I bought my headset. Haven't had any problems with it yet, even though many people seem to be having both headset malfunction and a lot of user error (punching the ceiling light, leaving their headset in open sunlight).

    Current favorite game is H3VR, amazing shooting simulator that gets updated weekly
    Also love Bigscreen to watch random stuff with random people, seen a few new movies in both flat and 3D

    Don't own it myself, but I've also played a lot of Job Simulator on my friend's Vive, looking forward to Vacation Simulator so much

    Steam:

    I got a vive over the holidays and love it.

    So far I had the joy of playing PavlovVR which is basically counterstrike with VR.

    Rec room is another good choice with various mini games such as charades and laser tag. Only downside I've noticed is that it's filled with kids. Good for the family in my opinion.

    Whirligig is a great choice for a video player allowing you to watch movie files and even allows YouTube support.

    VRChat is most likely where the most fun is to be had. Full of entertainment and randomness.

    I've only hit my wall once so far. :flushed:

    I've watched a lot of Pavlov, both on YouTube and Twitch, and it seems like so much fun but my space isn't big enough for that :(
    I've also seen that they already sell rifle-shaped controller handles to make games like that easier/more fun, but that shit is so expensive for a few pieces of metal

    I did download rec room before it was too popular with kids, but yeah I did hear it's an absolute nightmare now. I don't mind VRChat, but even though it's supposed to be a similar experience, it completely lacks all those mini games and replaced it with incredibly weird skins and weeaboos rofl. I've had a few good times there, but I'm not social enough for a game that revolves around interaction

    You could get a Rift for the price of the PS4

    Oculus Go is pretty neat, I'm just waiting for a chance to devote a couple hours into seeing how I can play some free SteamVR games on it.

    Since it's spooktober, I'd recommend "Face your fears", free experience that's surprisingly spooky (the version where you're in the bedroom, the one with a bunch of experiences like in the place are lower quality)
    Bigscreen is a must for the Rift, but I'm not sure how it works on the Go
    Other than that, I don't know of many actual games for it, but I've heard it's perfect for YouTube/Netflix/Hulu/porn

    VR gets a bit boring for me after some time. I'm glad I didn't purchase one. I feel like VR is better with friends. Good thing there's a mall nearby my place that offers VR games for a small fee.

    It's funny, I was actually thinking about that yesterday. An ex-friend had the Vive almost from its launch, and I couldn't understand how he didn't use it every day. He was pretty excited at first and spent way too much money on VR games, but after I got my Rift, I understood that even though it's a very cool experience, there aren't a ton of interesting games right now, and it's definitely more something you use when you're in the mood rather than an everyday thing
