I really want to get one, but the more I think about it, the less fun I think it’ll be. I think it’s an awesome concept, but it’s definitely something to enjoy by one’s self, which is an issue for me. I enjoy playing video games with people and even watching people play video games. The Oculus Rift is something only one person can view and experience. I think it’ll be the best for scary video games, but I feel as though have the fun of scary video games is getting scared together with friends, or making your friends play and get scared while you sit back and enjoy.
With all that being said, I think it’s an excellent idea and I think it’ll be popular as more detailed games get created for it. It also holds a lot of potential for being used in other fashions, such as any sort of professional simulation training or used to help people overcome fears through artificial exposure.
