I get instant motion sickness with VR. That really sucks ass because I work in tech and this blocks off a whole part of the industry for me to get into.
You ever play this?

I just bought the Oculus 2 on a whim. I tried to buy an Oculus Quest last Christmas, but they were back ordered until late Feb so I forgot about it. I’m looking for something fun for me, but also another way to hang with the fam if widespread COVID persists for another six months. I’ll need to lean on you guys for game recommendations because I haven’t had a gaming system in decades. Looking forward to it!

Definitely recommend the following:

No Man's Sky
Skyrim VR
Job Simulator

For socializing with others, I recommend:

vTime
AltSpace VR

Facebook also has some kind of group meeting space on the oculus I believe, but I haven't used it personally.

Yes, loved that game

I lived in a drug dealer house...Cannabis mostly

We had dozens of people coming in and out daily

Dealer dude had a 60-70 inch TV and two couches in one room

We hooked up that game and it was on nearly 24/7 for a few years

here is the good part...

Run a piece of duck tape vertically down the center of the TV with a vertical piece of cardboard that stuck out 3 feet from the screen...other people have surely done this but I thought it up for our situation because I hated screen watchers

In multiplayer (4 players 4 quarter screens)this creates two large screens on either side of the cardboard, no screen peeking to cheat

People would bet 1-5 bucks a game and there was 2 on 2 matches going on almost all day, we had TVs in another room for other viewing...this was just a dedicated gaming room...we would regularly have 20 people in that room and people would be waiting for a game 3-4 games deep

I and some of the other people that lived in the house, made many many thousands of dollars off the people that came in to get some herb

I was somewhat of a ringer because of my superior hand eye coordination, I would also toy with them via tactics/map knowledge and end up behind them with gun to back of their head as me and my partner laughed chuckled and followed them around

I always turned off my HUD(sights so it looked easier on the eye), I could circle/sidestep shuffle very smoothly so it didn't make you sick...It was really fun to watch the players that were smooth enough to not make you feel sick

I could make 100+ a night easily...we also did this with perfect dark and halo 1 and maybe halo 2

That was my golden era of gaming no doubt, was a lot of fun...beer or red bull/vodka and some oregon cannabis was our diet

I don't game anymore but those are fond memories haha



OddJob
Jaws(easiest head shot)
etc...

So many funny characters




TLDR humble brag of the golden days

Sorry to hear. Has it been variable depending on what you're looking at or is it universal? Like have you mostly experienced it with 360 videos or with cgi stuff also? Some apps have teleporting features as mentioned above so you don't feel a sense of motion.
Pretty much universal. I think Unreal Tournament affected me the least for some reason.

Buy the boxing game thrill of the fight.

I bought it for my son and ended up doing 6 fights. After throwing about 100 punches each round I've been sore for a few days and haven't played since. It's weird because your missing every punch but your going a little harder than shadowboxing. A slow pace over 12 rounds would be a good workout and I was all sweaty after about 45 mins


Heres a video and obviously I'm the fat guy

Dude that is awesome! I almost bought that game but decided I would wait until I read some reviews..... then totally forgot about it. That looks fun. I much prefer that kind of first player game to an immersive universe one. I don’t have a lot of time to invest so I like to get in, fuck some shit up, and get out. That game looks perfect for that!

Bought the table tennis game today.

fucking Hell.

i used to be a pretty decent county level player. So it was it bit annoying for 30 mins. Then it clicked. And I was ok against hard. Losing but ok. Then i played online.

but with only 2 hours in i can see I will be a playa on this.

what a game.
