I bought an Oculus Quest for Christmas and also purchased Boneworks but haven't set up the software to stream it to the headset yet. What headset do you have? What other games have you been playing?

I've been playing the popular Oculus games, SuperHOT is freaking awesome, I played it on the PC but IMHO it was made to be played in VR. Robo Recall is a decent shooter, as well as Espire V1 as a stealth shooter.

Have you played any good adventure style games? I play tons of shooters on the PC but am looking for more story driven adventure style puzzlers. I just got Obduction (from the makers of Myst) and it's a trip.

I have the Quest as well. Just snagged a 10ft USB 3.0 cable off Amazon for like $15 and it works perfectly. Other than Boneworks, I have the Vader Immortal games (essential if you're a Star Wars nerd), and modded Beat Saber (for custom songs). As for other games, I like Red Matter on the Oculus store; it's not necessarily an adventure game, but it's definitely a puzzle game, I like it. Now that I have the cable tho, there are endless possibilities. I plan on snagging Skyrim VR here soon, would love to fight a dragon in VR.

Yeah I bought a cable to use link as well, as nice as it is being able to use the set wirelessly the graphics when playing (wired) Rift games are just so much nicer. I bought the Quest version of Red Matter but haven't played it yet, looking more forward to it now. I've played about half of Vader Immortal, it's neat but I'm not a Star Wars fanatic. You have to play Superhot if you haven't already, it's like you're in the matrix.

I thought I had typed it, meant to. Awesome game. Story was a bit short, but the challenges and wave missions are super fun. They made insane money the week following Christmas, $2 million + if I'm not mistaken.

Been loving RDR2 on PS4 pro. Such a good game. Spent a few hours getting the best horse in the game. Only one of them in the open world to catch apparently. Wasn't easy lol.

I got an Oculus for Christmas and didn't enjoy it too much. I sold it, got a Switch with BOTW. That was great!

I bought HP Reverb a couple of days ago and I have somewhat mixed feelings, but overall positive ones.

The biggest "wow moment" was when I sat in the cockpit of HS-129 tank destroyer plane (part of IL2-Sturmovik WW2 flight simulator). And I literally mean "sat in the cockpit" because the experience felt so real that I became convinced I can reach out and touch the gauges. It completely blew me away, as I didn't expect that current VR technology can bridge the reality gap so convincingly and so vividly.

However the view outside the aircraft window only amplified primitive ground graphics of IL2 because everything in VR gets enlarged to scale 1-to-1 (so it can feel real), and that unfortunately applies to graphics flaws and deficiencies as well. So I am keeping my eye out for DCS Normandy map, as it features higher fidelity levels than IL2 maps.

Also, I am getting motion sickness when flying in IL2 VR, especially in late-war ultra fast and maneuverable fighters like Tempest and FW190A-8. I hope I can eventually overcome this, as it is slightly better after a few days. It may be a personal thing because I am generally sensitive to sensation of flight, which gets not only recreated by amplified in VR so convincingly.

Sitting down helps a lot with motion sickness, but VR flight games are particularly bad. Best thing for me was a fan, just leave it pointed at me and on a medium setting. I guess it gives the brain a singular point of reference for the body, which helps alleviate the confusion between what your body is doing vs what the eyes are seeing. I still can't play for hours on end, but I usually don't start feeling the effects of VR until 2.5+ hours (which I rarely get to do anyways).
