1 likeThe two best titles i've played in VR, almost make the price of the set worth while on their own. Those being Subnautica and Lone Echo (short but amazing). I played an early release of Subnautica, which got stuck in geometry about 15 hours in, then my Rift cable got chewed. Not played since. Completed Lone Echo, mostly because i just couldn't put it down. So atmospheric, which, considering most of the game is played in a vacuum, is some feat! I have a few humble bundle sets of VR games that i've not played, but i'm fairly sure they're mostly kids games. P.S. They're both floaty-hands games...Get over it P.P.S. I've heard ST Bridge Crew is decent. P.P.P.S. Elite Dangerous has control issues for me, but looks potentially very good.

I've successfully resisted the VR siren's call thus far, because I think the technology is too rapidly changing yet still far too crude (although even I will admit it is far better than it was a decade ago). That and apparently I'm much too easy to immerse without it - graphic quality be damned. I play NMS and played Skyrim mostly in 3rd person, because I don't like phantom hands floating in my field of vision (side note: I play the starship flight sessions in 1st person, not 3rd, because of my background with flight simulators). Most VR titles that I've previewed include those same floaty hands - or worse, blocky affairs barely recognizable as hands/controllers.
