I got a little bonus through work that significantly reduced the 'real' money cost of my picking up a Rift, which I had been mulling over for a while, so I pulled the trigger and bought it. Had I known what the experience would be like, I would have paid full price a long time back.
I last used a VR headset probably in the early 90's on an old arcade cabinet, and remember the screen chugging along to keep up with my head movements. As my PC, while reasonably pokey, is getting on a bit in years, with a 980GTX powering it, I envisaged something similar. Wrong. When you put the headset on, every tiny movement of your head is replicated in real-time in your view through the Rift. It can be quite disconcerting - one of the early things I did was a series of demos, one of which places you on a gantry hundreds of feet above a city street, which made my stomach back-flip with vertigo despite knowing I was stood in the middle of my office.
But what about the games Snowy, I hear you ask? £400 is a lot to put down just for a clever tech demo right? Well there are some amazing titles. Robo Recall - free with the Oculus Touch controller package - is great fun, shooting, punching, tearing robots to pieces. Skyrim VR is quite breathtaking (although I had forgotten the giant spiders, which in VR are utterly massive and made this late-40's male reviewer make a VERY un-heroic squeak). SuperHot VR makes you feel like Neo from The Matrix, grabbing weapons, hurling objects, all while avoiding incoming bullets and enemies. Beat Sabre will become a party-game classic with it's rhythm-based lightsaber action. I own but have yet to try Subnautica.
The game that has wowed me the most though, Elite Dangerous. I have played E:D since the beta, and always loved the scale of the game. Played in VR it is a completely different experience though, as you are teleported into your ship's cockpit, and suddenly the scale of the world around you is breathtaking. Space stations are immense, planets and suns look like...planets and suns. Other spaceships can be huge. Glancing at different screens within the ship lets you adjust things on the fly that would usually require extensive keyboard shortcuts, so I fly using my Saitek X52 setup exclusively. Dogfighting enemy ships is a whole new experience, as you naturally head-track them, allowing you to fly that much more accurately and aggressively. It really is mindblowing what a difference a new perspective makes.
All told, this will not be a flash in the pan gimmick, it is a truly revolutionary experience. If you are on the fence, take the plunge, you will not regret it.
For those who think VR is 'just a fad', think again.
I've investigated spacial anomalies and rescued my captain as an AI robot, to exploring the depths of an ocean planet where I've crashed landed on. Driven cargo with a truck to flooring it through a dense forest in a rally car. Danced the night away slashing boxes with lightsabers to traversing creepy buildings or watching movies on a massive 50ft screen.
After 7 months of use, I've just replaced the original 1xAA battery in each controller after light to moderate use since buying. At £349 when I purchased, this has been the single most best purchase in the last year. Do yourself a favour, invest in this piece of kit, you will not be disappointed.
Controllers feel much better than the weird VIVE wands too.
On a slightly negative side you can easily see that VR still has a long way to go to being perfect, the god rays can be annoying and the resolution isnt anything to write home about.. however as a first generation its still very fun to play around in and id highly recommend buying one if you have a decent enough computer to run it, also Rec Room is probably one of the most fun games I have played.
