Do you guys care about Virtual Reality?

Implementation in Euro Truck Simulator 2 is what has me hyped the most about VR.


Is that game fun even if you drive frequently?

I recently drove from Oregon to Minnesota and back in under 2 weeks :(


If you like driving frequently it is. It's about driving so there's a lot of that.

Yes. When I'm old and frail; I would love to have a virtual reality tool. It's good that the technology is getting developed now instead of later.

Plus also to see first person some of the dumbest things people have done. Like a Felix Baumgartner freefall or tight rope walker over the Grand Canyon.

I think there is definite potential, if the balance between quality and affordability can be found. I've been wanting this technology to happen since it was first put out there in the 90's, but I'd only be willing to give it a shot if they overcome the physical side effects like motion sickness.

I don't care about VR either. People go mental over video games now, can you imagine how big the flames will be when people have VR to blame for their behavior?

Not even a little bit, or rather just enough to post a reply.

Right now only for driving racing games or games like Euro Truck Simulator

Cockpit view + Virtual Reality = epicness.

I honestly didn't really think about it like that.

...now that I have I really want it.

IMO it sounds like another gimmick. I haven't tried the Rift or anything modern like that, so I can't say just how much it adds to the experience. Of course, anything is better than 90's VR, I used to own a Virtual Boy and I played all the games on it when Blockbuster was renting them out. Spending 300-500 bucks on a VR headset doesn't sound worth it to me.

The Virtualboy is the absolute worst thing you can associate with VR tech, even at the time it was current.
